Short North

While Columbus, Ohio is not my hometown, it is my home away from home home as long as I’m in graduate school. And after a couple years, I’m finally starting to feel like a part of the community. On my birthday weekend, Kyle and I had a chance to explore the downtown and Short North area a little bit. Thought I’d highlight a couple of my new favorite businesses today. And just so my readers know, this post is sponsor-free and totally sincere. I just happen to love these two places.

Saw this paper sitting here in some flower beds. The headline caught my eye…

Bakery Gingham is known in Columbus for its cupcakes. Which are, um, what’s the word, PERFECTION. I could seriously eat about ten Ultra-Violet White cupcakes in a day. I won’t. But I could.

My other new favorite spot is the floral shop, Rose Bredl. Go HERE to visit their blog and see gorgeous arrangements and inspiring ideas. My good friend, Meredith, works there and I recently stopped in and met the owner, Mary. What a sweet little place and what an awesome staff!

Just walking around the shop inspired me to go home and decorate. I will definitely be buying flowers here in the future…

And my favorite spots in my town...home, in my chair. The Denver Public Library. Wash Perk Coffee in Wash Park. Showers of Flowers yarn shop.

It's rare to find an Ohio shout out! We're nearly neighbors :) The Short North is a really great area. Of course, Easton and Polaris have great shopping if you haven't already been.

Your photography is gorgeous! Love that first shot of the skyscrapers. The colors and textures are so beautiful. That Billy Baldwin quote is lovely! Sounds like a wonderful time together.

beatiful photos. Columbus is one of the cities on my list that I need to visit. I love cupcakes. I can probably eat 10 cupcakes in one day too (:
I like the handwriting on that black board.
