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.
Scenic drives abound in the Buckeye State, from the rolling countryside of Amish Country to the resplendent views along the Ohio River Scenic Byway. In terms of superlatives, Ohio Route 7 is the longest state highway and if you’ve never driven it in its entirety, you’re missing out! Winding its way north from the Ohio River town of Chesapeake all the way up to Conneaut in Ashtabula County, Route 7 is an immensely scenic drive worth taking. Come along as we show you the beauty and wonder that awaits you!
