As someone who grew up in the Cincinnati Metro area, Winterfest at Kings Island was a holiday event that I looked forward to every year. Last year I was pleasantly surprised that it exceeded my expectations with its return after a long hiatus. This year you will discover that Winterfest is continuing to expand offering more entertainment and adventure options for the whole family.
Live Christmas trees have always intimidated me because I don’t do well with taking care of plants and I’ve always been paranoid that my Christmas tree could catch on fire. I asked Jeff Ruggles from Dirr Nurseries tips for picking out and taking care of a real Christmas Tree.
Keeping tabs on your health doesn’t have to take a lot of time. It also doesn’t even have to take you to a traditional doctors office. I’m on the go A LOT, which makes screening options while I’m out running errands, or in between adventures, even better!
A Lights On tour is pretty much the only way you can get me inside the Dent Schoolhouse. I’m not good with scary and Lights ON is the only way this scardey cat can handle it. The Dent Schoolhouse is Nationally known as a top haunted house attraction and they continue to push the boundaries of creativity with new redesigns each year to keep the guests coming back each year on their toes.
I LOVE adventure, but I don’t do scary. It’s just not my thing. It’s also something that my family isn’t really interested in either. I don’t like things jumping out at me…. and I don’t like jumping from things… that jump out at me.
But just because I don’t enjoy scary, doesn’t mean that I have to stop having fun at Kings Island. There are still plenty of family-friendly options for families in the fall.
If you have someone in your family with a history of cancer you probably fall into one of two camps, you are either super proactive when it comes to all things medical…….or you prefer to keep your head in the sand like me. I honestly didn’t want to know and I was content to not know.
My mom detected breast cancer late at age 51 (she hated going to the doctor) and she passed away at age 57 (after a period of remission when more cancer came back and spread to other parts of her body)……you would think that would make me proactive……but instead it’s made me afraid of the unknown because I’ve had a front row seat to how devastating cancer can be.
You would logically think that this should make me even more proactive, but watching her suffer had an opposite effect on me. As I approached 40, friends and family became more and more vocal about their concerns of my thought process out of their love for me… and through the support of friends, I finally faced my fear of my first mammogram at a Power Lunch.
Self-care can look different to everyone. From pampering to retail therapy, Liberty Center has you covered for a “Treat Yo Self” adventure. ( I put that reference in there just for you Parks and Rec fans) I’m sharing 7 ways Liberty Center can help you invest in yourself.
If you are visiting Kings Island for the day, you are most likely going to grab a bite to eat while you are there. I’m sharing tips and menu items so that you can plan ahead and make the most out of your dining experience.
I’m a BIG fan of spicy food. The spicier the better. I’m not a good person to ask if something is spicy because more times than not, it’s not spicy enough in my book. In fact, most times when someone has a product that they claim is spicy, I’m still left disappointed…my husband is convinced that I’ve burned off all of my taste buds over the years. When I found out about the Wicked Hot Ghost Pepper Sausage from Queen City Sausage, I was cautiously optimistic.
