Keep Your Roots Local

Fashion, Food, Travel, Wine


I grew up in Cincinnati. 17 years later and I still hadn’t wandered down to Findlay Market. Every other thing that you’re supposed to cross off your hometown bucket list was complete. Sometimes it takes a trip back home and a weekend as a tourist to see a city in a completely different light. I’ll save that hometown rant for another day… 🙂

…It means they learned it by reading.

When I was in grade school, we had a read-a-thon, and, naturally, being the nerdy kid that I was, I absolutely had to win the most amount of minutes read. That also meant that I spent an absurd amount of time actually reading. No other kid is going to want to spend 1000 minutes reading in a given month. Except for me.

Throw some Harry Potter my direction, gimme a straw and an ice cold A&W Cream Soda and my fourth grade self was pretty much in heaven.

I’d like to tell you not much has changed, but time sure has a way of flying by and half-read books sit on my shelf, namely, the newest Harry Potter.
