The Church of the Immaculata

This church has the most beautiful bells that toll throughout the day and this photo was taken about 75′ from where we stayed in Mt. Adams over the 4th of July weekend.

imageWhile on the way to pick up some Indian food from Deep India, a restaurant close to the University of Cincinnati, I found myself at a stoplight staring at this 168-year-old school. And… I just couldn’t help myself. There was something about the way it looked – almost haunted – in the way that the dusk’s light reflected behind it.

Fourth of July, Mt. Adams Style

Yes, it’s been a while since I last posted. It’s been a very busy year and I’m ready to get back to what I love. 🙂

My fiancĂ©e and I went to Cincinnati, OH for the Fourth of July weekend and rented a multi-story condo in Mt. Adams. I had never been to Mt. Adams, or even heard of it (I don’t hail from these parts), but I completely fell in love with that little city on the (rather large, mountain-esque) hill. And, although I’ve never been to Europe, either, it had a very European feel about it. My fiancĂ©e has been to Europe and confirmed that it definitely felt European. In fact, she compared it to Montmarte.

At any rate, it had great views of the city and the Ohio river and bridges, as well the Fourth of July fireworks display after the Cincinnati Red’s game. We were on the third floor balcony, and weren’t as fortunate to have a rooftop to relax on, but even so, we had a great view of the fireworks display from the comfort of our home away from home.
