I chased the sun all the way to California in a desperate search for the sun-dappled, glittery, dry vacation we all dream for. Indeed I found it- in a coastal college town, wine country, LA beaches, and even the desert. Our third stop: Santa Monica.

If it’s hot chocolate you’re looking for, Cincinnati’s got you covered. From a Belgium dive to a wine bar to a market chocolatier, you’ll find a delicious cup of cocoa to beat winter’s chill in the Queen City.

One of my favorite places to visit at Christmastime is the historic German Village in Columbus, Ohio. Something about the snowy brick house on cobbled brick street puts me in a mood to read Dickens while sipping on a steamy cup of hot mulled cider. Here are some of my favorite stops that’ll put you in the Christmas spirit.
I grew up going to Cincinnati’s Union Terminal with my Grandpa, typically around the holidays. With my tiny hand in his, we’d wander from one end to the other, admiring the mosaic murals and the ten-story high ceilings in between. The appreciation I have now is thanks to him. Here are my favorite things about Union Terminal and what you mustn’t miss!
Need a cozy read this fall that pairs well with warm tweed, worn loafers, and freshly polished pearls? Here’s my go-to preppy reading list. When the crisp air beckons me to escape, a place where nostalgia lingers and warmth comforts, I turn to these pages.
Autumn on a college campus is like springtime in a fairytale or wintertime in the Swiss Alps. It fits perfectly like elbow patches on a tweed jacket. That said, one of my favorite fall activities is strolling through a beautiful leaf-strewn campus. Luckily I live close by to a charming college town, home to Miami University.

We’re all just crazy for pumpkins. And just like everyone else, I’m scooping up as many pumpkins as my front stoop, fireplace mantle, and dining room table centerpiece will allow. So any activity celebrating our beloved pumpkin, I’m there. And luckily, I don’t have to stray far because Ohio seems to love pumpkins as much as I do. Several pumpkin patches sit within a 10-mile radius from where I live. A local city pumpkin glow illuminates all of our imaginations. And a beloved pumpkin show draws thousands to central Ohio. We’ve been checking it all out this October, and here’s what we found.
I have my traditions come fall. Collect pumpkins-check. Cue Gilmore Girls marathon-check. Launder sweaters-check. Pick apples- check, check, check. And then take those apples and turn them into crispy, gooey goodness. Yes, I’m talking about apple pie’s laid-back and reliable cousin, the apple crisp. And this New York Times recipe might be my new favorite.
