Meanwhile across the river.

This morning we dropped off the rental car we that we used to drive up to Michigan…

It was a pretty nice ride. The check engine came on in our Jetta GLI the day before we were going to drive to Michigan. We didn’t feel super comfortable driving all the way up north with that hanging over our heads so we just rented a car from Budget at CVG to get us there and back…

After we dropped it off, we stopped by Crestview Hills Town Center and decided to have lunch at The Pub

We shared a Scotch Egg…

Genfier had a half chicken salad wrap and a caesar salad…

I had these delicious fish and chip sliders…

We don’t get over to Crestview Hills very often, It’s pretty nice over there, and The Pub has some really good lunch. πŸ˜€πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§β€οΈ

#TBT Pause for paws.

Back when we lived downtown, Milan and I used to walk the heck out of all the parks along the Ohio River every single day…

We would walk around four miles a day together. When we moved into our house in Northisde, I started a Milan shrine in our office…

And this is what my Milan Shrine looks like today…

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

After these messages…

We’ll be right back. We’re going to Michigan for Christmas.πŸ˜€πŸŽ„β€οΈ

Pause for paws.

While we were packing to get ready to go to Michigan, Mack was playing with toys…

And Oscar and I just hung out…

What a couple of silly heads. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

Goodnight moon.

Tonight, there was a big full moon over Northside…

It sure was a really pretty moon with all the clouds around it. πŸ˜€πŸŒ•β€οΈ

Good evening from West Chester.

This afternoon we went out to West Chester to visit Genifer’s mom. I love hanging out with Geri. We got to exchange Christmas gifts. And when we were packing up to come home, there was this gorgeous sunset…

Thanks, JJVE!

How adorable are these Gardenhouse Pottery #TeamFiona Cincinnati mugs JJVE sent us for Christmas?

I see many, many hot chocolates enjoyed in these mugs. And we got a Downtown Cincinnati gift card too?! Thanks, JJVE! πŸ˜€πŸŽβ€οΈ

I’m still pretty popular.

My photos hit another milestone on Google Maps

It’s pretty nice to still be popular.Β πŸ˜€πŸ—ΊπŸ“·β€

Shopping in Over-the-Rhine.

After lunch at Sacred Beast, we did some shopping in OtR. We went to Mica 12v. They had this wall of clocks that was pretty mesmerizing to watch

Then we went to The Native One. Genifer loves this store…

I wanted to steal these adorable dog toys, and I would take the dog bed too…

We saw this guy on Vine Street…

We went to Elm&Iron

And then across the street to Elm&Iron Loft…

I think my dream job would be doing the Instagram for Elm&Iron. We stopped into Low Spark for a drink…

And then we walked down to Sundry and Vice for a drink before heading home…

We love their amazing cocktails. It was a really fun afternoon of shopping and hanging out in OtR. πŸ˜€πŸ›οΈπŸΉβ€οΈ
