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.
There’s just something special about a neighborhood bar. These places are more than just pubs and restaurants; they’re an inextricable part of the community. Locally owned and generally no-frills, neighborhood bars are places for gathering, unwinding, and enjoying good drinks and fare. In Portland’s Eastside District, My Father’s Place is a small bar that’s been a hub for locals since 1978. It’s been a haunt for famous musicians and artists (Elliott Smith was a regular here), as well as generations of Portlanders. People come to this unassuming dive bar in Oregon for the laid-back atmosphere and ambiance — and the all-day breakfast, too!
