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.
If you’re into unique roadside attractions, you’ll be very happy in Ohio. Roadside attractions abound in the Buckeye State, from larger-than-life baskets to world-record breaking behemoths. Tucked away in the Appalachian region of southeast Ohio, you’ll find a Goliath-sized mining bucket known as Big Muskie. Once the world’s largest earth moving machine; today, this bucket remains as a reminder of Ohio’s mining heyday.
Visit the Big Muskie Bucket at 4470 OH-78, McConnelsville, OH, 43756.
