I just had the most fun weekend back in Cincinnati. I want to write a very detailed post, soon, about all of the reasons why I love that city. It’s not the part of Ohio where I’m from, but I lived there for a year, and I could happily live there again (someday).
But for now, I just want to reflect on how much I loved being reunited with these fine people (and more than a dozen others with whom I, unbelievably, did not take photos). I bumped into Bob and his wife Erin Marie as they celebrated their anniversary with a picnic on Fountain Square in 2007, very randomly, and quickly started spending as much time as possible with them. Blake approached me at a party in that same year, after recognizing me from my blog (embarrassing!). As for Mary, that’s a long story, but let’s just say it was love at first sight – she’s kind of like a mom to me, except we never fight and I’m the bossy one.
Blake is visiting this weekend. Will the rest of you please follow suit?
