For the last part of our adventure in our state’s capital, my husband and I had planned on visiting the Columbus Museum of Art for the Rothko exhibit. As amazing as the exhibit was, I was also just very taken with the place in general.
CMA is very modern and I [...]
I was excited to find out that I was featured in this year’s city calendar for Vandalia. My photo that I entered into the contest is featured on a two page spread of other contestants’ photos, including all of the winners of the contest. Sure, I was [...]
I feel sorry for voters in non-swing states because it has to be a little less exciting. Living in Ohio really makes you feel special come Election Day since the candidates have had to spend so much time and money campaigning here and the pundits can’t stop talking about you.
