Funny how moving can give you a whole new perspective. I highly recommend a far move-away-from-home at some point in your life, even if just for a year or two; it allows you to see things in a new light.
My sister now lives in Cincinnati, and for Memorial Day weekend I took a quick trip there to go to a wedding with her. It was, all in all, a great weekend. Even if you don't have an awesome twin sister residing there, thought I'd share a few fun ideas of things to do in the area!
1. Brunch at Sleepy Bee Cafe
This delicious brunch spot is walking distance from where my sister lives (in Oakley), and, although you should plan on waiting a bit on the weekends (it's a hot spot!) the local food is on point. I ordered a delicious omelet, but only thought to capture the giant cookie on camera. GET THE COOKIE. It has like a million things in it and is delicious.
2. Hike in Ault Park
|Sometimes I think we wear too much lululemon if that's possible ;)|
3. Visit Krohns Conservatory in Eden Park
I always enjoy wandering through conservatories and gardens (see this post on the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh and this one on the Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison) and this one was no exception. Krohn Conservatory is not near as big as the Phipps in Pittsburgh, but they did have a fun "butterflies from the Phillipines" exhibit going on. Butterflies, although photogenic, are seldom still. But I did snap a few pics.
4. Snack at Yagoot
I'm somewhat of a frozen yogurt connoisseur (that's something to brag about, I know) and Yagoot was exceptional! We went twice in three days. That good, you guys. We went to the location in Rockwood Commons, which is a shopping center that includes a J. Crew Factory and a Whole Foods. A nice place to shop!
And, on my Cincy still to-do list is to catch a Reds Game at the Great American Ballpark, of course.

Happy June, friends! xx
