found on the beach

The weather here in Cleveland is finally warming up, at least for now. Everyone knows we’ll probably get at least one last surprise snow storm because that’s just what happens here. The warm-ish weather had me aching to get back to the beach. It’s been so long since my last found on the beach arrangement

nights like these

After quite a few months of being lazy bums, staying indoors in the evenings, and watching too much Supernatural instead of going out Jeff and I have been making an effort to get out and wander around the city before finally calling it a night. I don’t know why we waited until it was super

It’s the little things…

like crisp autumn days + finding all the super tiny pieces of beach glass. I didn’t mind the winter so much as a child, it meant playing in the snow! These last few years though, the season has hit me harder and harder. It just gets dark so early! It hasn’t snowed yet and it’s not

Cleveland Rocks!

Welp, that might be the cheesiest post title I’ve ever written (yeah, probably not…) but with the first game of the World Series tonight and our team playing I couldn’t not share something related to the city I love today. I’m not huge on sports but I will always root for Cleveland. I was downtown

Lake Erie cairns

In certain areas they’re used as a hunting implement to direct animals toward a game jump. Other times, and in this case, they’re

On The Cutting Room Floor

Last weekend was a good weekend.  I’m still struggling with the whole “too hot to function, oh no I’m overwhelmed!” thing but Jeff and I were on a roll last weekend. I honestly don’t remember the last time I had such a productive weekend. Not productive on the internet, my inbox is still a mess

#flockCLE

I’m not sure how closely any of you out there follow politics, especially American politics (I am always blown away by how many international readers I have!) but the Republican National Convention is coming to Cleveland this summer. That doesn’t mean much to me personally, but I do realize this is a HUGE deal for

I love the city I live in. I’m pretty sure I’ve made that abundantly clear by now. Sometimes I just want to shout it from the rooftops though. Maybe it’s not so much the city itself but what it represents to me. Don’t get me wrong, Cleveland is awesome. We’re definitely a lot more cool

bikes, a picnic + Cleveland

Slightly obsessed with this photo of Jeff. It’s the lock screen on my phone. *Insert a million heart emojis.* The weather is finally warming up again in Ohio. I feel like I’ve probably said that five times already by now but this great state keeps doing that awesome thing where it’s warm then all of

2016’s ladybug invasion

Three years ago I wandering around the beach near my house when I stumbled upon tons and tons of ladybugs. It was CRAZY. I took lots of photos to document this unique event! (Photos of 2013’s ladybug invasion.) I went back to the same spot two days after my discovery only to find they were all
