I love how different Greater Cincinnati is (and its diversity!) Living in Walton I get to feel like I’m “out there” with land and lots of trees when I’m actually pretty close to so many things. I can drive a little south and be in farm land, drive 15 minutes north and be in Florence for shopping, 30 minutes north and I’m downtown enjoying the city lifestyle.

I love that there is always something to do in Cincinnati. There are new areas being developed all the time so finding new places is always fun. I like trying new restaurants and I love how close we are to Northern Kentucky. Many of my close friends live there and I enjoy going over the river whenever I can.
I love talking long walks through Eden Park, spending time with any or all of my five adorable grandchildren and three children. Cincinnati is wonderful - Great parks and outdoor activities, college and professional sports, lovely museums and galleries, the symphony and many concert venues, so many theaters and countless fabulous restaurants.
What do you love about living in Cincinnati?
I enjoy the small town family friendly feel of Loveland where I live with easy access to our ever changing downtown area. With new exciting restaurants and breweries opening all the time there is always something new to try.
And I wore that unicorn. I wore it every day except wash days for six months. Maggie came back to the breast then, so I reintroduced kinda-sorta-underwire. I alternated those two bras for the next two years.

What do you love about living in Cincinnati?
I like that you can have the best of both worlds living here. There is so much to see and explore downtown, but with a quick drive outside of the city you can be surrounded by woods and fields. I love the history of Cincinnati as a city and think it is pretty neat that my great-grandfather Stanley Mathis was a finishing carpenter who helped to build Union Terminal.
It’s 3:47 pm. Almost time to start dinner. Looking around, listening to their sibling laughter in the other room, staring at the school papers, toothpaste, conditioner, water filter for the fridge, and receipts on the kitchen counter. The last little to-do’s of the day. Life stacks up.
Baths are one of my most favorite de-stressors. They are warm. They smell good. They make your skin feel nice. Thy don't have any calories. What's not to love? Add some flameless candles, a [bath] bomb playlist (Ha! See what I did there?), and one of these super luxurious LUSH products to your watering relaaaaaxxxxxxx.

Then the fog lifted and I was finally free. I could breathe. I could get through my days without anxious, intrusive thoughts. I didn’t emotionally react as swiftly and aggressively because as one RN friend put it, “You’ve been given a sort of pause button.” She was so right.
