Ida Street is a real place. I moved there just after my 24th birthday. & it was about then this blog started taking shape. Here is a space that I document the things on the mind of a twenty something: fashion & style, young adult life, learning how to cook, the cool/hip spots to hit in Cincinnati (holla at my hometown!). You know, the things that happen on Ida Street.
Other things to know: Try to always greet me with coffee; unless it's after five. Then we should talk over an IPA. I'll always say yes to Keystone Mac n' Cheese. I go through one carton of dark chocolate almond milk every week. I have three sisters & one brother whom I love dearly. I believe personal style is everything... but I have ten pairs of sweat pants stored under my bed. Brunch is the best.
Is Ida Street a place you'd like to see your organization? Let's talk! I love exploring, promoting & writing about new things. Just shoot me an email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll come up with something great.
Thanks for visiting! My name is Annie Heath. I'm a 90s dance move enthusiast, a beer lover, and a floral designer. Not so long ago, this page was the entry to my blog, Ida Street.
You see, back in 2014, I was living in my first “on-my-own” apartment on a tree-lined avenue called Ida Street. It was a tiny, 400 square foot studio, and I loved it with all my heart. I explored and learned a lot about myself, my passions, and my capabilities in that little place. In fact, here you can even see my first foray into flowers, shot on my iPhone 4 on the studio's kitchen floor.
But then, I moved to the west coast. I started a new phase of my life. I matured. I got married. I began to explore the SF Flower Mart. I commuted... a lot. & slowly, blogging stopped being a priority.
Still, there's something nice about a familar space, don't you think? Ida Street, the apartment, has been a memory for a while... & now, so is the blog. But I decided to re-use the space, the logo, and the mentality. I'm even keeping the archives.
Ida Street taught me a lot, and I hope to carry that mindset of discovery and exploration into my new venture.
So that's my story. I'm flattered you're interested in my past, and I hope you continue following along with my current adventure.
