The Next Step.

It's been almost two years since I came to Lima... nervous and so excited to start my TV Meteorology career.  Now it's time to take the next step to continue professional development.  I've accepted a job in Minneapolis at the NBC affiliate, KARE.  Two weeks from today I'll be packing up in a U-Haul and heading back home to Minnesota. 

Bryan and I couldn't be more excited.  With a new baby in the family (thanks to my sister and her husband) we're so excited to get back to family and friends.  But we're also trying not to think too hard about the friends we are leaving behind here in Lima.  There will definitely be some tears as we say goodbye to Limaland.

January 31st will be my last day at WLIO.  I've been so lucky to have worked and learned here with such a supportive community.

Ohio, Check!

Living in Lima certainly has the perk of proximity to several big and exciting cities.  Bryan and I made it a priority during our time here to visit each city in the region at least once.

With a trip to Cincinnati this weekend, the task was complete!  On our way down, we were talking about which one we had enjoyed the most and which one we could see ourselves living in long term.  To that question, I replied Columbus and he chose Indianapolis.  As a vacay destination, we both agreed on Put-in-Bay... can't beat a winery on an island with golf carts!

But after a great night that included a sampling of appetizers and drinks at several restaurants we both agreed it would be Cincy for us!  We loved it!  The architecture of the old houses was fantastic.  The river and hills make for interesting landscape.  And the variety of neighborhoods within the city makes for an experience no matter what your mood is.

Here's a few pics of our trips that took us out of Limaland.
