Back On The Reservation

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.

I'm sorry to hear you were in a car accident, but glad you came out of it OK. Hope you get your car back soon.

So happy to hear about the new digs! Can't wait to see pictures and it's so exciting to have a washer & little hobbit house was a real PITA for not having one (although it was a fantastic place). Very exciting!!!
