Ristretto Roasters

I've been having some really horrible coffee cravings over the past few weeks. Since starting my new job working directly downtown, I've been drinking a lot of watered down, flavorless office grinds. There is a definitive problem with the location I work. There are a couple great coffee shops in relative walking distance, Ristretto Roasters being one of them, but by the time I race over,...

January in Instagrams

          Photographs courtesy of Jade’s instagram, Cory’s instagram and our instagram. The first month of 2014 certainly wasn't what I had anticipated. I've been struggling with some issues related to my UC. Lets just say I'm happy to say goodbye to January and am welcoming February with open arms. My birthday is on Monday so the mister and I will be celebrating this weekend. I'm looking forward to hearing Colin Meloy...

Dapper & Wise

It is owned by the brilliant folks who first opened Insomnia Coffee, two family friendly coffee houses where they welcome live music, displays of...

A Sweet Sunday at Little t Baker in Union Way

I'm finding more and more as I get older that I have a particular taste in places I like to hang out. I want the space to be relatively well lit with decent natural light, or at least some unique and charming indoor lighting. That might be because I know what horrible lighting can do to a photo-shoot you are dying to come out perfectly....

Barista (Northwest 23rd)

When we were in London, I loved the feeling I got when going on adventures through the rows of centuries old buildings.  They loomed overhead while the sun peaked over their rooftops. Mixed in with all of the old there was plenty of new shops and restaurants you could visit too,  nestled inside or between all of the rich historical buildings. I don't get the...

I have to thank Jamie, a mutual friend of ours for recommending me to apply for the job over a month ago after reading my last job search related post . Without her I...

A Festive Break

"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave,...

'Reverie is not a mind vacuum. It is rather the gift of an hour which knows the plenitude of the soul.' Gaston Bachelard From when we serendipitously ran into Anne and Cara one lovely afternoon. We drank coffee and played with cameras. It was basically the greatest. Here's hoping you find time this weekend for a bit of reverie...

November in Instagrams

                Photos courtesy of Jade’s instagram, Cory’s instagram and our instagram. November was one of those months where we wanted so much to happen, but only a few things did and the rest was filled with small celebrated moments. We were asked to be a part of a small film project by a friend of ours. We enjoyed numerous cups of coffee and lots of time inside together planning our future....
