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.
Summer in Ohio means so many things: beach days, waterfall chasing, al fresco dining, and festivals. So. Many. Festivals. There is an embarrassment of riches when it comes to summer festivals in Ohio, but nothing quite compares to the annual Troy Strawberry Fest. What started as a small gathering in 1978, the Troy Strawberry Fest has become one of the Buckeye State’s most beloved annual festivals.
