Joy Magnet ⎮ Krohn Conservatory

The long weekend brought with it a trip of the non-work variety, a perk of working remotely. I took a quick jaunt down to Cincinnati to visit friends and the city in which I grew up. Much has changed over recent years and some neighborhoods look nothing like I remember yet most of it is exactly as I left it.

The weekend was filled with a host of epicurean adventures. Many a beverage was sipped at Collective, {m5}, and Cheapside. Copious amounts of food were eaten at my all time favorite Indian restaurant, Ambar. Flights of juice were sipped at Off the Vine. Ye olde turkey legges were devoured (though not by me) at Ohio Renaissance Festival. (It really hasn’t changed since the last time I was there twenty years ago.) And Charley Harper glasses were purchased at Mica 12/v for use in my own kitchen. And of course some ice cream was enjoyed at Graeter’s.

What made me especially happy, in addition to all of the fresh air and sunshine this weekend had to offer, was a trip to Krohn Conservatory. A site for many field trips past, I hadn’t been in years. Turns out, a building full of beautiful plants and flowers still makes me smile.
