Dropping a Letter to Santa

Yes, the holidays are upon us…soon to crush my will to live. I am trying, though, each year to not be a total Scrooge. My husband loves Christmas, and it is seriously his favorite time of year…besides his birthday. I promised him five years ago that I would *try* to enjoy myself during the holiday [...]

Menchies in Dublin, OH

Thank you for coming back into my life, frozen yogurt cafes. I have so missed places such as Yogurt Oasis and TCBY (I know TCBY is still around, but doesn’t count if it is in a gas station or airport).  The new cafes are even better, though, because I get to serve myself. Frozen yogurt [...]

Jacquemin Farms in Plain City, OH

We always end up at Jacquemin Farms in Plain City, OH at some point for their Fall Field Days. It is a smaller farm in regards to what they offer for fall activities, but that is what I like about it. I don’t stress about the kids getting too far from me, and there is [...]

Olentangy Indian Caverns in Delaware, OH

I hadn’t been to the Olentangy Indian Caverns since a 4th or 5th grade field trip, and remember being impressed. As an adult, the visit was even better.  A friend and I recently took our kiddies, and found there was much more to do than squeezing our bodies through underground rock formations. They had mini-golf, [...]
