Beauty in Sharon Woods

Today’s weather was beautiful! The sun is shining, a light breeze was blowing, the trees have green leaves on them again, and flowers are blooming. (This means that summer is finally on its way, correct?)


My husband and I decided to rent a pontoon boat after work for an hour ($45), and we enjoyed the beauty of Sharon Woods from the Sharon Woods Lake in Sharonville. (This is the same lake I like to jog around — it is 3 miles around. Two times around gets that magical 10,000 steps per day!)

I took these photos of a pelican from the boat. I didn’t realize we had them in Ohio!

This family of geese also swam over to the boat to say hello.

It is hard to see, but this photo is a mama duck with some very tiny baby wood ducks.

You can also rent paddle boats, kayaks, and power boats. Rates can be found by visiting the Great Parks website. (You can see them behind me in this selfie.)


So the next time you are looking for a nice time out with nature, look no further than your State Parks for relaxation.

Bahar Reza Grand Opening

This past weekend I coordinated the red carpet grand opening for Bahar Reza, a custom fashion house located in the Shops of Oakwood. The owners have to be two of the sweetest and most talented people I have ever met. 


More than 250 guests, including City of Oakwood and Dayton VIPs, attended the event. Champagne and light desserts were served to guests. 


Custom designs by Bahar Reza, a private couture label, were featured in a walking model fashion display and on the racks. 


Bahar Reza has developed a partnership with James Free Jewelers. At their annual Mother’s Day event in Oakwood, Bahar Reza provided models dressed in couture gowns that handed out roses to each lady at the event. For Bahar Reza’s grand opening, James Free offered a complimentary goody bag, a 15% off coupon, and a door prize of a $600 David Yurman bracelet.
