Summer in Ohio

Summer in Ohio

My last summer as a college student was bittersweet! I tried to make the most of every moment because I knew next summer I would (hopefully!) be employed or in graduate school.

I spent my summer back in Kirtland, Ohio (just 20 minutes outside of Cleveland) with my parents, brother, sister, and cute puppy, Marley. I worked at a breakfast restaurants on the weekends and some weekdays as a server.

I did a lot during my four month break, but I thought I’d narrow down my favorite events of the summer.

1. Birthdays on Birthdays on Birthdays! Most of my high school friends have late April or summer birthdays, so it was a lot of fun to celebrate together, just like old times. Next up is the baby of the group, me! I turn 21 next week!

2. My cousins wedding: My oldest cousin Ashley got married this summer. It was a beautiful wedding with the reception located at The City Club in downtown Cleveland- an amazing venue. It was the hottest day of the summer, so their wedding pictures right by Lake Erie were a little uncomfortable!

3. Cedar Point: Every year, my dad’s side of the family goes to Cedar Point, the greatest amusement park in the world! It’s a tradition that has been going on for 25 years, and it’s not stopping anytime soon! My favorite ride will always be the Magnum roller coaster. It’s a smooth ride with no spinning or going upside down – right up my alley.

4. Lounging by my grandparent’s pool: Almost every day that I didn’t work, you could find me lounging by my grandparent’s beautiful pool. It was often very relaxing, but other times it was crazy and hectic (which I also liked) as my five youngest cousins would come over with a bunch of their friends.  Either way, it was one of my favorite parts of the summer.

My last summer as an undergraduate student at Loyola was fantastic! I always enjoy my summers in Ohio. There’s no place like home!
