So much to celebrate

13 years of friendship, 11 years of love, 9 years of #grumblepup management, 2 years of marriage, 1 year of home ownership, and ~7 weeks until parenthood.

I couldn’t ask for anything more.

Murals of Cincinnati

Sometimes beauty is hidden right in front of our eyes. Sometimes we need to explore our own backyards.

A few weeks ago, Andy and I did just that, taking ourselves on a self-guided tour of the many murals that adorn downtown Cincinnati. We saw only a fraction of them, and this is only a fraction of what we saw. Such a wealth of public art. This city is truly rich.

From the mural on the side of Jean-Robert's Table. Snails for dinner, anyone? #cincinnati

My most favorite mural in #cincinnati. Dimension, history, beauty.

This little guy (below) attempts to capture all of the murals, as well as some of the city’s major landmarks. I love how clever and colorful it is.

Then, these are not murals, but fun little oddities that I spotted during our walk. (The second one is a Totoro car!)

Last but not least, I tried my hand at the fun faces we saw in one of the sweets-themed murals.

Yeah, haha, I’m a doof. Life’s too short not to have fun.
