Nine years ago today.

Genifer and I went on our very first date. We went to a Reds game. We sat out by Jay Bruce, and saw Aroldis Chapman close out the Reds win…

Oh, the butterflies I had at that game. It took me six innings just to put my arm around her seat at the game. Afterward, we walked up to Mainstay Rock Bar to see Bad Veins…

It was one of the best evenings of my life because of the incredible woman I got to spend it with. 3,285 evenings later, and I still get butterflies every day. Thank you for spending the last nine years with me, Genifer. I love so so very much. And I’m glad we have every one of them all chronicled right here. πŸ₯°βšΎπŸ˜

#TBT Pause for paws.

Milan used to love walking over to Fido Field in downtown Cincinnati. When it was walk time, he’d just sit and stare at you…

And then he’d walk with you through P&G Gardens down to Lytle Park and then start pulling until he got to Fido Field. And he would be so happy…

He loved going up by the fenceline…

He’d wait for cars to come around the corner of Gilbert and he’d race them down the fenceline. And he’d beat a lot of them. He was so fast…

Always remembering all the good times with the bud dog. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

Happy birthday, Union Terminal!

A very happy birthday to Cincinnati’s Union Terminal and all our friends over at Cincinnati Museum Center. Work started on Union Terminal all the way back in August of 1929. It was completed and officially opened to the public 87 years ago today!

Remember when Genifer and I got to go on a behind the scenes tour of Union Terminal? And all the #VoteYESon8 #VoteYesUT support to get Union Terminal the restoration help it so desperately needs?

Happy birthday to a historic Cincinnati treasure. Here’s to another 80+ years! πŸ™‚

Downtown details.

Another beautiful mural.

Check out this Artworks mural at the corner of Vine and Seventh Streets…

It might not be new but it was new to me…

It’s another really pretty mural in downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸŽ¨πŸ–ŒοΈπŸŒΊβ€οΈ

It’s what’s for lunch.

Most days, I take lunch with me to work. But if I don’t, there’s usually leftover food from lunch meetings or I’ll just make myself a sammich with the company ham in the kitchen at Grey Midwest. Today, I was having a craving for a warm turkey sammich on a bagel. So I walked over a block to Elm Street…

Bagel Stop in the Enquirer Building!

I got their Signature Turkey Club on a jalapeno bagel, and it was exactly the sammich that I wanted for lunch…

Great sammich! I might have just find my new go-to when I go out to lunch. πŸ˜€πŸ¦ƒπŸ₯―❀️

It was a good morning.

This morning Coffee Emporium had a barista visiting Grey Midwest

She was making espresso an drip coffees and hot chocolates for everyone…

Coffee Emporium’s hot chocolate was really delicious…

So this morning I ended up having two hot chocolates. It was my lucky day! Both of them were really good. And it was also really foggy this morning downtown…

It was a pretty good morning in downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸŒ«οΈβ€οΈ

It’s a sign.

I’ve never noticed just how bright the sign for Aster on Fourth glowed…

Aster is one of our favorite bars downtown. πŸ˜€πŸŒŸβ€οΈ

It’s the best feeling.

I survived another pretty hectic week at work. It’s funny to me. My old job was a total cakewalk. It wasn’t very challenging. The people I worked with weren’t very appreciative of any amount of effort. And as a result, I never really felt like part of the team. It wasn’t great by any stretch of the imagination and I stayed there way too long.

My job now is definitely challenging. The deadlines are pretty intense. I have to work on projects in the evenings and sometimes over the weekends. But the efforts I make are noticed and very much appreciated. And I feel like an integral, valued part of the team.
I divide my time between two teams that service multiple clients. Big clients. I get to participate in client meetings and the clients appreciate the efforts as well.

Sometimes deadlines for the two teams overlap and it creates a bottleneck like it did this week. I had two big projects both with deadlines on Friday. It was a pretty stressful week, compounded by the fact that I took my birthday off. I had a bunch of stuff to get done and the asks kept evolving. But I got everything all done and done well. And when everything was finally done, it was the best feeling in the world.

I really like being busy at work. And I really like feeling part of the team. It’s rewarding.
I really like my job. I really like the work, I really like where I work,

And I love this view

The only bad part after a long week is I don’t feel like doing much of anything afterward.πŸ˜€πŸ™οΈβ€οΈ

Happy National Croissant Day.

Today was National Croissant Day. I had mine with sausage, egg, and cheese…

And I got chocolate milk to go with my sammich…

Caffe Barrista on Fourth Street has amazing breakfast sammiches. πŸ˜€πŸ₯β€οΈ

Genifer usually drops me off at work right around 8:30 in the morning. I dropped my backpack at my desk, walked down Fourth Street to get my haircut, walked back down Fourth Street to get a breakfast sammich and got back to work before most people had even set foot in the building. It’s kind of crazy how both Genifer and I have transitioned to become morning people. And I like it.
