Love List #10 Life in Ohio-Oh! Surprise! There's Something Positive About Life in Ohio!


I thought since I've been so down on Ohio lately, specifically Cleveland, that I ought to say some positives about life here that I do love.

1. People in our ward and at the dental school are so friendly. I feel like I've made friends more quickly here than I ever have anywhere else. I don't make friends quickly or easily, so I appreciate those here who have invited me to outings or our family over for dinner, games, etc.

This is me with a group of friends going to see Twilight. I'm in the back wearing the glasses. For some reason that was the week my contacts stopped working and I actually had to wear my glasses in public.


2. The big fancy houses here are so fun to look at. Lots of the houses here in the nice neighborhoods are tudor style and remind me of Jane Austin novels.


3. Ummmmmmmmmm. We're closer to New York? That's something I really like about Ohio. It's close to New York. Although I don't think I can say that's something I really love about Ohio because there are other places that are close to New York where I'd rather be. But I'd feel bad if I could only think of two things for this list. So sure. I'll keep it.

You're funny. I'm glad you found that third thing. I would love to go to New York. One of the things I want to do before I die is see a Broadway play. Maybe you can go see one for me.
