Dannie (in Real Life)

Summer 2017: let’s do ALL the things!

Oh… hey, remember me? …that one girl who used to update this blog occasionally. Yeah, about that… I forgot. Actually, I’ve just been so busy livin’ this summer that it slipped my mind. There is no shortage of things to do in Cincinnati, especially in the summer, and I’ve been enjoying endless weekends of craft brews, walking around as many zoos as possible, Sunday afternoons at the pool, and even airplanes! Alas, for this lady summer is winding down as I start the first semester of my accounting studies at Cincinnati State today. (Side note: holla at yo girl who got a scholarship to finish her accounting hours in order to take the CPA exam.)

And as always, if you’re ever so bored you want to follow my daily life, check me out on Instagram. (Warning: there’s cats.)

In May, American Legacy Tours started another local history tour: Under the Market Tour. Much like their other tours, this one takes you underground in places of questionable safety (worth it) to see little bits of Cincinnati history, but this one takes place further north, around Findlay Market. We were lucky to jump on the very first Under the Market tour, so it may be a bit different now, but this is always a definite recommendation from me and their tour guides are fantastic. (Always check out Groupon for discounts!)

June was a hodgepodge of everything: boating in Indiana with family, the really great Indianapolis Zoo, FC Cincinnati at Nippert Stadium,  and the Dayton Air Show, a summer mainstay for me.

In July, more fun: the Airpower History Tour at Lunken Airport (featuring FiFi, one of only two airworthy B-29s), a sightseeing cruise with BB Riverboats, Coney Island Balloon Glow, the Butler County Donut Trail (wear your stretchy pants), Member Morning at the Cincinnati Zoo, and an afternoon at Belterra Park (formerly River Downs).

August was a bit more laid back: Milford Street Eats, another BB Riverboat cruise (this time with work), board games at Rhinegeist, a visit to the Columbus Zoo, and a Cincinnati Bengals preseason game.

Now onward to fall – my favorite season! Pumpkin spiced everything because I’m basic, hoodies, corn mazes, hockey games, and… oh yeah, homework.
