I’m Ready for Shaky Beats!

The month of May is off to a great start! Not only do I have some exciting personal and professional things coming up (that I’ll share with you all later!), May is when the spring/summer music festivals really start picking up steam! This weekend, I’ll be at the Shaky Beats Music Festival, and I absolutely […]

Thumbs Up Diner

Thumbs Up Diner initially caught my attention with the sign on the side of its building. Street art and pancakes? Two of my favorite things!

Amélie’s French Bakery

The other day I grabbed a quick coffee with a friend at a new cafe that I hadn’t been to before. It’s called Amélie’s French Bakery, located on Marietta St NW, sort of in west downtown, if that’s an official area, lol. Starting from this mosaic sign outside (you now how much I love mosaics), this […]
