Brunch in Chicago – Blue Door Farm Stand

Kyle & I love Chicago. We lived in Lincoln Park neighborhood for almost 2 years post-college, and love taking every opportunity we can to get back. Luckily, we’re only a 3 hour drive away which makes it a fairly doable trip – even with a little one in tow! For the past 2 years, we

Malvern Buttery

I hate (and yet, secretly love) to admit that I am a regular at our local coffee shop in our town of Phoenixville, Soltane Bridges Cafe & Bakery. The only problem is that it is closed on Mondays. While I was out on maternity leave, they were even going through renovations and were closed on

Bourbon Coffee – Washington D.C.

As the blog name suggests, I’m all about the coffee. All day. Every day. I’m on a quest to find the best coffee shops in all the cities I visit. On our recent trip to Washington D.C., we stopped by Bourbon Coffee, located close to our hotel in Foggy Bottom. Out of all the coffee shops
