Good morning from Indy.

Good morning from downtown Indianapolis…

Across the street from our hotel was Cafe Patachou

I ordered a Belgian waffle with fruit…

It was delicious. But Genifer completely out-ordered me with her incredible croissant french toast…

Cafe Patachou had some amazing coffees. When we were done with our breakfast, we got coffees to go and some snacks for later…

Thanks, Indianapolis! We had a blast!

And then it was back to Cincinnati…

On the way home, we stopped to pick up Mack from The Pet Spot

We’ll get Oscar and Bear from Geri’s after our fence is done. I think Mack was pretty happy to be home…

And we were really excited to try these guys later…

It was a great, really quick little adventure. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—บ๏ธ๐Ÿง‡โค๏ธ

Road trip to Indianapolis.

ROAD TRIP! This afternoon we drove over to Indianapolis. Before we left to go to North Carolina, we bought tickets on one of those ticket resale sites for the USL soccer match between Indy 11 and our favorite USL squad, Louisville City…

We dropped Mack at Pet Spot for the night and we dropped Oscar at Geri’s before heading over to Indianapolis…

Compared to all the driving we did last weekend, the drive over to Indianapolis really seemed like nothing. It went by so fast…

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Indianapolis…

It was a really nice hotel with a beautiful open air atrium…

Our room was very nice as well…

Before the match, we shared a BBQ burger and pepperjack cheese bites at Loughmiller’s Pub…

Amazing burger. And then it was on to Lucas Oil Stadium…

Indy 11 pulled back a goal from a penalty kick just the before the halftime whistle. And that made the score 3-1 to Lou City at the half.

After seeing four goals in the first half, we broke camp in the 60th minute. We didn’t want to wait around to see if Indy 11 could mount a pretty epic comeback.

Lucas Oil Stadium sure is a beautiful place to watch a game. We were so happy we got to see it with the roof open and without many people inside. The announced attendance was just 6,700.

And the final score of the match was Lou City 3-1 over Indy 11. We saw all the goals. Plus, we were sitting behind the goal where Lousiville scored all three of their goals and then we moved to the other end and were sitting behind the goal when Indy 11 scored their PK. Pretty neat stuff.

We stopped for a postgame drink at Brothers…

And then we meandered through downtown back to our hotel…

We ordered pizza and called it a night…

And good night from Indianapolis. It was a really fun day! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ—บ๏ธโšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿบโค๏ธ

Hard to believe, it was nine years ago.

Nine years ago today, my parents, Genifer and I got to see Sir Paul McCartney perform live in concert at Great American Ball Park during his On the Run tour…

It was an incredible show! Just beyond words good. And we had a perfect vantage point of the show from our seats…

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. ๐Ÿฅฐโšพ๐Ÿ˜

#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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Downtown details.

Standing at the corner of Plum and Fourth Streets looking east. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ™๏ธโค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธ๐ŸŒบโค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆƒ๐Ÿฅฏโค๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธ๐ŸŒซ๏ธโค๏ธ
