I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
Breaks Interstate Park is a bistate park that’s located in both Kentucky and Virginia. One of several interstate parks in the United States, it’s only one of two that’s operated jointly under a compact between two states (Virginia and Kentucky), rather than two separate state park units. In many ways, Breaks Interstate Park defies definition; and as such, kind of slips under the radar. But it shouldn’t, as this underrated and unforgettable park in Kentucky is one of the state’s most beautiful hidden treasures, featuring tranquil waters, stunning canyons, and even a secluded lagoon.
