Total Basset Case: Home in the City

Home in the City

I have been a Cincinnati resident for coming up on 8 years now.  That is crazy to me! I still remember the day I packed up and moved from Indianapolis to start my life in an entirely (new to me) city.  
I really did not know what to expect moving to a new place but I quickly learned what an amazing community Cincinnati is.  I was quickly welcomed into this town and that helped the transition so much.  
Cincinnati was one of the first big adventures of my life and after that the adventures just kept coming. 
We got Floyd, we met friends we still have today, we got married, we bought a house and had a baby.
Each of those events always brought us a new love for the city and community we call home.  
We love exploring Cincinnati from one end to the other.  We love to scope out new restaurants, take Floyd and LM for walks on trails and to the park, checking out the zoo at Christmas and I am lucky enough to work downtown and am able to experience the vibrant life down there quite often. 
 Our local church is often incorporated with doing a lot of great projects around our city that we are hoping to become even more involved with this year but the giving back doesn't end there.
We are lucky enough that a service we've used in our house for years also gives back to our city.  Cincinnati Bell has launched their Cincy Gives Home Campaign that gives back to local organizations, I LOVE that.  The organizations they give back to all happen to be close to our heart in some fashion: USO of Central and Southern Ohio, Dragonfly Foundation, CancerFree KIDS, and SPCA Cincinnati, all great ones!
We have used Cincinnati Bell Fioptics for quite a few years and have always been a huge fan of the service.  For one, with speeds up to 1 gbps it helps me get out blog posts in fast manner (and maybe some online shopping thrown in there too...).  I can write a blog post for the next day and be out  around the neighborhood with my family or snuggling up on the sofa catching up on our favorite shows in no time.
Our DVR is constantly full if that tells you anything.  We have quite a few shows we love to watch together, there are just so many good ones!  Fioptics makes it easy to get caught up whenever we have a chance.  We stream a lot of our shows and the streaming HD service is flawless, we never have to wait on buffering or delays.  And if we aren't watching a show there is a good chance we are streaming music and having a dance party with LM.
Check out the great work Cincinnati Bell is doing around our community with Cincy Gives for yourself!  And take a page out of Floyd's book and go explore the city!

Aww, this makes me miss Cincinnati. I had the same experience with moving there not knowing anything or anyone, and it turned out to be so great!
