Happenings in Hamilton


Exploring new places is one of my favorite things to do, and small towns often have many hidden treasures to be found! There are many things happening in Hamilton: old buildings getting facelifts, new businesses moving in and more people buzzing around the neighborhood. I’m excited to share a list of some of our favorite spots, as well as a few places that are on my radar to check out. Even if they aren’t in your backyard, a day trip to Hamilton is a great adventure!

I'm a small-town girl, born & raised in Ohio. I've lived in Cincinnati since 2003, and am grateful for all of my adventures in this wonderful city! My husband Mike & I have two daughters, Audrey and Josephine. I have been a SAHM since our first daughter was born, which means most of my days are filled with story-reading, adventure-planning and playing dress-up. I love event planning, fashion and make up. Coffee & Reese's Cups are among my favorites as well! One of my sought after hobbies is finding time for "Me Time" (by myself that is)....we all do that right? I look forward to sharing the joys of motherhood with all of you!
