Food Challenge: Columbus (part 1)

So like most things in life, when you make a decision you have to begin where you are. So right now I am in Columbus, so my food travel challenge begins here with Schmidt’s Sausage Haus. Opened in 1888 as a meat packing house, it ventured into the restaurant business via a food stand opened in […]


Not Goodbye Friends

…but a see your sexy asses later!!!  :) “You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.” -Miriam Adeney This isn’t my first move, and in all the places where […]


Hocking Hills State Park (Ohio)

In my quest to do more in Ohio than just work my day job, I found myself at Hocking Hills one beautiful, crisp Saturday in the fall. My good friend Naila of Spirit Syrup joined me. It is less than 2 hours away from Columbus, and gave us plenty of time to talk and get lost […]


Picture This…German Village (C’bus, OH)

German Village is one of the oldest and best preserved parts of Columbus. There are many streets with the brick pavers still exposed, houses are often narrow and close to the neighbors, and there is a lot of charm and presence to the neighborhood. It is a place with corner stores and family restaurants. It is a […]

Cuyahoga - Brandywine Falls 8

Cuyahoga National Park (Ohio)

Before moving to the Midwest I admittedly didn’t really know much about it. I knew that it was a center for agriculture and was at the forefront of the industrialization in the US, but I didn’t really think that there would be a lot of natural beauty. Having been settled during a time when preserving […]


Winter is Coming…

Winter is coming! I am a fan of Game of Thrones and was excited to find an excuse to use such an iconic line. But in this case it is more than a motto, winter is really taking hold early.  Just a few weeks ago (I mean literally 2 weeks ago) I was running around trying to […]

One Fine Day…Dublin, Ohio

Saturday I took my camera and just got in my car with the intention of seeing something of Columbus that I hadn’t seen before. I picked Dublin (a suburb of Columbus) as my destination and here is what I discovered:   Cornhenge (Officially known as Field of Corn, though Cornhenge is a more apt description) […]


Fall in Ohio

Now with my eye on the future I find myself kind of drifting through my current life in Ohio. I recognize that this is probably not the best attitude, but there are amazing things ahead for me and I can’t help but live more than a little bit for tomorrow. So like a sleepwalker I found […]

Baconfest - Columbu Ohio 072

Circleville Pumpkin Show (Ohio)

Have I ever mentioned that Ohio is big on agriculture? So it is no surprise that there are a lot of festivals centered around food. A fall favorite is the Circleville Pumpkin Show, which has been an ongoing festival for more than 100 years. It has the atmosphere of a fair, there is funnel cake […]

Yellow Springs, Ohio 039

Fun with Friends: Yellow Springs, OH

You don’t always have to go very far to have an adventure, and sometimes what starts off as a quick jaunt to a neighboring town turns into a day of unexpected fun. So a couple friends and I decided to spend a day away from Columbus, and did a mini road trip to Yellow Springs, OH. We were in search […]

Marblehead Lighthouse

Road Trip: The Lighthouses of Ohio

With my time in Ohio coming to a close I decided to actually start making a dent in the Ohio bucket list. Okay, I had to create the list first, but at the top of the list was to see the lighthouses along the coast of the great lakes. There are 20 odd lighthouses in Ohio off the […]

Jeni's Bergamot Frozen Yogurt - citrusy and sweet, amazing on a hot summer day

Eat This…Ohio

By far one of my favorite places to have breakfast in Columbus, Ohio is the Northstar Café. It reminds me of a coffee shop that I would find back home with it’s mix of urban sophistication and natural woods, while still maintaining a casual vibe. The food is fresh with an emphasis on organic local ingredients (which speaks to my […]
