What I loved about August was it's spontaneity. Spontaneous movies in the park. Spontaneous trips to New York. Spontaneity is what keeps life fun + boy does that describe August. Can you believe it's time for another month of Faves!? Well, let's round 'em up, shall we?!

Sam Adams Brew + View! In an attempted trip to Newport Kroger for the ingredients of a home made dinner we happened past this food trucked, brew fested, movie under the stars in Eden Park! We reserved our free tickets right away & abandoned the thought of a boring dinner for something magical. It was perfectly spontaneous & delicious & hilarious (Wedding Crashers). I just love Cincinnati.

You know what other city I love? New York! As you know, in August I took an unexpected trip to the East Coast to visit my little sister. I had never been to New York but seriously am in love. It was amazing. You can read all about it HERE.

Freshman year of college a crush introduced me to Vampire Weekend. The crush didn't last but my love for these tunes did. I've been listening to a lot of music to try & stay in the zone at work. This one stuck out among the thousands. I love the beat to the "baby, baby, baby.." at 43 seconds. It's hard to explain.. so take a listen :)

At the end of August we caravanned up to Detroit, Michigan --my Papa's hometown. We had a second commemorative service for him with about 100 people that didn't have enough notice to make it to the first. Spending time + continuing to heal with my extended family was magical.

+ I made it back just in time to watch the WEBN Labor Day Fireworks from my friend's ninth floor balcony. We were eye level to the greatest light show The Queen City witnesses. How lucky am I?!

There were so many adventures this month! We've found new breakfast placesfurniture warehouses & Flea Markets. I took Ultimate Air Shuttle to New York City. I laughed + lived  + wined + dined. August was one heck of a month but to sum it up in one word, I'd have to say LOVE.
