A-Z Theme Reveal

A-Z Reveal
I hope everyone is having a great start to the week!  I’m having a lovely time! We’re spending Spring Break week in the Outer Banks, North Carolina. This is our first time here and even though it’s been a little chilly on the beach, watching the waves crash onto the shore definitely beats the weather Ohio is getting right now!  

Today is the A-Z Theme Reveal Blogfest! I’m really excited to see what everyone else has come up with. It’s always so fun to see the amazing creativity in this group!  It took me a while to decide on my topic but I finally did it!

So now without further ado I give you my A-Z for 2016...

Cleveland is Cooler Than You Think-
All over the media, in tv and movies, Cleveland gets made fun of.  In the 2015 movie Trainwreck, starring Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, and LeBron James, LeBron tries to convince Hader’s character, Aaron, how great Cleveland is. Here’s part of their conversation: courtesy of IMDb:

LeBron James: When are you gonna come to Cleveland?
Aaron: I'll... I'll come when I have the time. I just don't have the time right now. I'll come when I have the time. I've been really busy.
LeBron James: You visit me in Miami all the time.
Aaron: Yeah, but that's Miami.
LeBron James: What's the difference between Miami and Cleveland? It's the same.
Aaron: You're right. It's the same.
LeBron James: Exactly.

Okay Cleveland isn’t Miami but it actually is a really great place to live and I’m here to prove that if you accidentally get stuck in Cleveland for a few days, there are plenty of things to see and do and I think you might really enjoy it! (and yes I’m writing this post from a gorgeous beach in the Outer Banks! -I do see the irony! :))

If that wasn’t enough, I’ve decided to end each post with a sweet little surprise that has to do with this adorable face that has captured my heart!

Can't wait to see what everyone else has come up with!  Have a great week!

Are you doing the A-Z? What's your topic?  Have you ever accidentally been to Cleveland?



  1. What a fun theme, and what a cute, lovable face of your furry friend. My own theme involves the ghost of Sigmund Freud! :-)

  2. Might take a bit to convince me as well!
    Enjoy the Outer Banks. Yeah, it's a bit chilly in this area right now. But it will keep people away from the beach so you won't have crowds.

  3. AAAAH I LIVE IN CLEVELAND! I can't wait to check this out!

  4. I have been to Cleveland! ... and I'm a big fan of the TV show Hot in Cleveland. It's a fun theme to highlight your home city ... it should be interesting :)

  5. I know absolutely nothing about Cleveland :) I wish you luck in showing everyone how great it is.

  6. All I know is that Cedar Point is near Cleveland.

    I hope you are having a fun time at the Outer Banks. Will you visit Kittyhawk?

  7. I have this vague idea that there is a Rock n Roll Museum there? Never been to Cleveland, but have friends who live there and they always seem to be up to really exciting things :)

    Showcasing your home city is a great theme! All the very best for an enjoyable and successful A-Z.

  8. Such a cute little dog :) Hope you enjoyed your time away on the Outer Banks; I heard it is beautiful there!

    Fun to do a theme on where you live and show it to others that come to visit! Enjoy!


  9. I'd come back just for the "sweet surprise!" what a cutie pie! Gail at Making Life An Art

  10. I grew up in Pittsburgh and we never had anything nice to say about Cleveland. I have no idea why. Like Cleveland ever did anything to me.
