Home is where the heart is. You’ve heard that saying a million times, right? It’s a place where you can enjoy a bottomless bowl of pasta with a side of grandma’s warm hugs. Home is comfortable and familiar. It’s nostalgic. It’s where your parents love to tell embarrassing stories to your boyfriend over dinner. Home is filled with the people you care most about in this world.
Sure, I dream about what life would be like on the West Coast — taking daily walks along sun soaked boardwalks, breathing in the salty air. Whenever I spend a long weekend in New York City, I stare at tall apartment buildings, wondering what it would be like to walk through their doors every day.
California is laid-back.
New York is electric.
But, Ohio is home.
I wrote about Clothe Ohio awhile back, when I was still living in Cincinnati (you can check out the post here). They’re amazing, guys. If you haven’t heard of them yet, I’ll give you the low-down. Clothe Ohio is a local company that produces fashionable Ohio apparel for both men and women (Fritz looooves his sweatshirt). What I love most about the company — aside from its vast selection of t-shirts, tanks, sweatshirts and accessories — is that for every item you purchase, the Clothe Ohio team donates clothing to an Ohioan in need. Pretty great, right?
