I didn't die. But I could have.
The past nine days have been a thready mess of insanity, chaos and excitement, all rolled up into a tight, colorful rubberband ball.
The two biggest things to happen - #1 I put down a deposit on an apartment in Over-the-Rhine. I'll be making a new home for myself by July 1. Can't wait. It's an amazing, two-story loft with tons of space, exposed brick, gorgeous antique hardwood floors, skylights, windows galore ... and a washer/dryer and dishwasher.
Could a girl wish for any more? More to come on this ahead.
#2 - My car didn't blow up - but it could have. The Saab is hanging out in Mariemont, waiting for an insurance adjuster to green light a project that involves a destroyed exhaust pipe and a punctured gas tank. I'm just grateful the car didn't ignite last Thursday - and that I managed to get out of it safely.
Add in some CAC/Shepard Fairey street party insanity (anyone else bummed they didn't have the balls to dive in to the Rumpke dumpster swimming pool?) and a nice evening of recognition and celebration at the Junior League of Cincinnati (humbled by an award I received for the cookbook; excited about joining the organization's board) - the past nine days have been off. da. hook.
The ride continues this week... but I promise to get up a blog post about one of the coolest things to happen in Cincinnati in years - Alex and Alison's Watch This concept - complete with a showing of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark - Wednesday at the 20th Century Theatre. Free.
Can you beat that with a stick? Likely not.
