Good evening from Northside.

I really love it when it’s dark outside and the streetlights are on and the light from the streetlights illuminate the leaves on the nearby trees…

I think it’s one of those really beautiful everyday things that not everybody gives the appreciation it deserves. 😀🌃❤️

USL Cup 2018: FC Cincinnati versus NY Red Bulls II.

USL EASTERN CONFERENCE SEMI-FINALS! Our number one seeded FC Cincinnati was playing host to the fifth seed baby Bulls of New York…

HERE WE GO!

At halftime, it was 1-0 New York Red Bulls II…

And after a very frustrating second half with very few chances created, the match would end 1-0 to NY Red Bulls…

With today’s loss, FC Cincinnati saw its 2018 season come to an end. It was a great season for FC Cincinnati. They went on an unbelievable undefeated run that spanned FC|C’s last 23 games of the regular season, and last 25-games overall. The undefeated streak began all the way back on June 2 and also included draws in the club’s US Open Cup fourth-round match against MLS’ Minnesota United (0-0, 4-1 loss in PKs) and last week’s Eastern Conference Quarterfinal against Nashville SC (0-0, 6-5 win in PKs). FC Cincy posted a regular-season record of 23-3-8 with 77 points. They set USL records for regular-season wins, longest undefeated streak and most points. And they were crowned USL regular season champions. It was a pretty amazing season.

But all good things have to come to an end. I would much rather have them get knocked out in the conference semi-finals by Red Bulls than rival Louisville City in the conference finals. Or for them to make it to the USL Cup final only to lose that match. Hopefully, they’ll keep getting better and better players and will be competitive next season in MLS. We’ll just have to wait and see. 😀⚽️🏆❤️

#TBT Pause for paws.

These photos of Oscar popped up in my Timehop today…

He’s such a silly and handsome little guy. 😀🦕🐾❤️

And when we came back from walking the dogs this morning, somehow the cat was almost entirely under the covers…

I don’t if she was there the whole time or if I covered her up on accident or if she climbed up there and worked her way under the covers. But it was pretty cute.
