A little bit earlier every year.

Just like the ridiculous ice skating rink on Fountain Square, that holiday tree seems to arrive a little bit earlier every year…

It makes me a little ill that they cut down a big beautiful tree every year. I really wish they would find a more sustainable alternative to cutting down a tree. Taken with Instagram. πŸ˜•πŸŽ„β€οΈ

Did you bring your umbrella?

Hello from another rainy day in downtown Cincinnati…

I guess it’s just that rainy time of year. I’m glad I remembered my umbrella. πŸ˜€πŸŒ§οΈβ˜”οΈβ€οΈ

Kitty’s Coffee on Fourth Street.

This morning we stopped at the new Kitty Coffee on Fourth Street

The space was kind of cold inside…

We both had caramel lattes. They were pretty good. But we think we’ll stick with our Sidewinder Coffee during the week. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈβ€οΈ

A grey rainy morning.

It was a grey and rainy morning at Grey Midwest


Downtown details.

I was walking down Fourth Street and noticed that the fur store was no longer open…

It’s always pretty nice to see a fur store go out of business for whatever reason.

Also, who knew that Historic West Fourth Street had its own logo?

And it’s not a bad logo at all. Who knew? πŸ˜€πŸ¦Š4⃣❀️

Retro Metro.

While I was waiting at Government Square for my Cincinnati Metro Rt17 bus, I saw one of the two super rad Retro Metro buses!

Back on Monday, Cincinnati Metro launched two “Retro Metro” buses that will be circulating throughout the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority’s bus system to celebrate four decades of Metro service. The buses sport throwback Metro branding from 1986 and a throwback cheap fare to match, just 65 cents!

It’s pretty awesome that I’ve already got the chance to see one of these retro branded Metro buses! #ILoveCincinnatiMetro πŸ˜€πŸšŒβ€οΈ

It’s what you crave?

For whatever reason, two crave cases of White Castle cheeseburger sliders showed up at the office today around lunchtime…

I hadn’t had White Castle in years and years. Today, I had two little sliders…

They were pretty much exactly how I remember them. And now I can go years and years without having them again. πŸ€’πŸ”β€οΈ

Staring out the window.

Just staring out the window this morning at Grey Midwest

It’s not the best view but it’s also not the worst view. And it looked like it was a really pretty day outside. πŸ˜€πŸ™οΈβ€οΈ


A decent portion of my job is working as part of an interdisciplinary team with our partner agencies within the WPP network for one of our bigger clients. The team I work with was all in Cincinnati this week for meetings. And tonight, we all went out to dinner at Mita’s on Fifth Street. It was good to get to put names with faces and have the opportunity to get to know everyone a little bit better…


And dinner was delicious. It was a really good time. πŸ˜€πŸ±β€οΈ
