Deep Sea Cincinnati Easter Celebration

titel_Cincinnati_easter

My cousin Melissa, her husband Moustafa and daughter Sofia came to visit some friends in Cincinnati last week which gave the Louisville part of the family the opportunity to meet up with them for a Saturday Easter celebration! Cincinnati is only 1.5 hours away from Louisville, a distance that seems like just around the corner after living in the US for almost a year (yes…the US of A is just MASSIVE!). For being so close, I have to admit, Mike and I have not yet quite ventured through the city of Cincinnati – except for a short day visit once with my cousin John and his wife Kathy. There is definitely still a lot for us to discover when it comes to the surroundings of our new home town Louisville, and its nearby cities.

For our meet-up we chose Newport – which is still situated on the Kentucky side of the Ohio river – and is basically like a suburb to Cincinnati. Newport offers an on the river Mall with family fun, restaurants a river walk, bars and lots and lots of patio seating. Since Saturday was just a beautiful warm spring day it was the perfect choice. We met up for lunch at Brio – definitely to be recommended if you are looking for good Italian cuisine.

The treat of the day was however a visit to the Newport Aquarium! Those of you that know us well – know how much Mike and I are suckers for exotic animals! Needless to say – we had a blast! If you ever end up in Cincinnati, it is definitely worth making the trip over to Newport to visit the aquarium!

Happy Easter Monday!

SONY DSCHappy Easter everyone!!

I am spending my time with my family in Munich Germany right now, so just a quick post to wish you all a very happy Easter!

Don’t you love tulips? They are my favorite flowers. They make me think of spring days and happiness and the best thing about them is they keep looking beautiful, even when they are way over their peak!

DSC02281Our family has the tradition of celebrating Easter wih long Easter brunches; traditionally in Germany with an easter lamb. It’s not an actual lamb – it’s a cake in the shape of a lamb, refering to Jesus as the lamb of God. I am not particularly religious, but it has been a tradition in my family passed down by my grandma for many year. Now let’s hope Easter marks the begining of spring for good – I am in dire need of more sun!

How do you celebrate Easter?

Life is a journey, have a happy Easter Monday brave-ones!
