I captured this timelapse of thunderstorms forming over downtown Cincinnati. And once they moved in, they stayed for the rest of the night…

It was the oddest thing.

The oddest thing that happened to me today. An entire set of pins we made for our wedding guests in Jamaica showed up my mailbox at the office…

Kinda odd, right? Taken with Instagram.Β #gtfjamaica2016Β 

Now that was a final.

We made our way over to Higher Gravity this morning to watch the 2018 World Cup final between France and Croatia. We were pulling for France, they were our pre-tournament pick to lift the World Cup but mostly we just wanted to see a really terrific final match regardless of who actually won. We were surprised with how much Higher Gravity really filled in as the match was about to begin…

And boy was it ever a good match! The perfect end to a truly incredible tournament. The match endedΒ 4-2 to France.Β SIX goals in a World Cup final, are you kidding me? Most of the World Cup finals are so conservative, defensive and boring. No one wants to make a mistake. This match was 90 minutes of end-to-end excitement. I didn’t want it to ever end. But all good thing have to come to an end… VIVA LA FRANCE!

And I finally got to get a photo with Jason from Higher Gravity’s Doggie the Dog

I’ve been following Doggie on Instagram since right after Higher Gravity opened about a year ago. But what an amazing month of soccer and an outstanding World Cup! It was one of the better ones in recent memory…

We’re already starting the four-year countdown to the next incredible World Cup. The next one will be in Qatar. And we can’t wait for more World Cup excitement.

Seen and noted.

We saw this just around the corner from our house on our way to work this morning…

Pause for paws.

Here’s a couple old photos of a very fuzzy Oscar from when we still lived downtown…

One hundred and twenty-five.

We counted 125 Daddy Long Leg spiders on our dog walk through Parker Woods this evening. One hundred and twenty-five!

Our old record was 72 on a dog walk. I think we’re probably done counting spiders on dog walks now because that was really a lot of spiders to count. Taken with Instagram.Β πŸ˜€πŸ•·οΈπŸ‘€β€οΈ
