Truth be told, I was a bit of a coffee-house rat this weekend. I am officially into the thick of studying for my licensing exam and find that my best work takes place when the scent of espresso permeates the air, I’m surrounded by soft chatter, and my fellow study buddy is close by. Now that I work from home, it’s nice to have a reason to get out of the house for a while, even if it means that I’m hopped up on caffeinated beverages for 48 hours straight. I’m forewarning you, there is a distinct possibility that this is what my weekends will look like until April. Apologies in advance!

    Well, that’s hardly something to apologise for, looks lovely ;) I’m particularly curious about that brunch… what is hiding under those perfectly-cooked eggs? x

    I would love to take a zillion pictures in front of that door a) because it’s so pretty and b) because it’s my initial. Your photos are lovely, as always!

      They’re at a brunch spot called Morning Glory! I believe they’re random vintage/antique/thrift finds though. So unhelpful, I know.

      So true! There’s a big T garage next to it, but I prefer the A:) It’s a little alley called Gilead place, just north of Front/Eastern, south of King

    There’s nothing wrong with a lot of caffeine…or so I keep telling myself! ;) At least the coffee shops you frequent are pretty!
