Ault Park is one of Ohio's most beautiful parks. You can see panoramic views for miles around from the center pavilion. One of the things that makes this park so special is its beautiful display of blooms as the trees bloom in the Spring. We make it a yearly tradition to visit this park during peak blooming season.

Cincinnati's first Blink festival was a must experience event. As one of the largest projection-mapping light shows in the nation, Blink brought together a diverse group of people to celebrate light. Local artists built light exhibits spanning 20 blocks across the city. We experienced the festival on Friday night. It was absolutely beautiful (the lights and the unity).
Blink runs from October 12-15 in downtown Cincinnati.
We love cheese! When we found out about the new cheese shop opening in the Over-The-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati, we were thrilled! The Rhined is an artisanal Cheese shop that carries Ohio Made cheese as well as many other high quality American cheeses. We recently took the Cheese 101 course offered by The Rhined!
We joined 14 other cheese lovers for a night of cheese tastings at The Rhined. Owner, Stephanie Webster, took us on a tour of 7 cheeses from all over the US. Our favorite cheese was a local cheese made in Kentucky called Kentucky Rose! Yum!
The Rhined uses handmade pottery as their dishes. Do you recognize this beautiful local pottery? It was made by our June 2017 Ohio Maker of The Month RHEINOceramics!
One of our favorite places in Cincinnati is the Findlay Market. Located in Over-the-Rhine, Findlay Market is full of diverse culture. Here we can find fresh produce, handmade pastas & breads, exotic spices, and local & international foods all in one location.

Today we ventured along the Ohio River in Cincinnati to find the cutest little candle shop, Manitou Candle Co.! We had a wonderful time making our own candles during their Weekend Candle Making Workshop! Mantiou is a unique Ohio-based shop that sells their own small batch handmade candles along with beautiful jewelry, accessories and locally made art work.
Our workshop instructor, Alli, explained that at Manitou the candles are labeled by number instead of by name. This allows people to select new scents that they are drawn to instead of scents that they typically select. Manitou has 100 different scents and we got to smell them all! During our class we learned how to make our own Natural Soy Candles! It was a delightful experience and we definitely recommend it!
Ault Park is one of our favorite parks in Ohio! Located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Cincinnati, this park is the perfect place to spend your day! The park includes a beautiful stone structure, several overlooks, and many gardens. Take some time to get lost in the park! We took these photos on a recent stroll while the Cherry Blooms were blooming.
We were lucky enough to march along side our sister's and brother's in Cincinnati this weekend. On Saturday over 30,000 Ohioans gathered in cities across Ohio including Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dayton, and Chillicothe. That doesn't include the thousands of people who marched at the Columbus Sister March the previous weekend. Women and men showed up to make their voices heard. As one woman at the march told us, "Revolution is in the air". We left the march feeling empowered, connected, and ready to change the world! Here are 26 Photos From The Women's March On Cincinnati (along with photos we took during the beautiful event).
