Weekend Escapes

I'm trying to fit in as many weekend adventures as possible before the harsh weather sits in. This time of year is perfect for adventuring. It's the most beautiful time of year and not too hot or too cold. These are more photos from a Saturday spent at Valley Green....

United By Blue + Greensgrow Farms

I love getting to work with companies I genuinely admire and show off one of my favorite places in Philadelphia at the same time, Greensgrow Farms. United By Blue, a local coffee shop and clothier, picked three Philadelphians to highlight their three new designs and...

Valley Green

Today was really really good. If you're looking for a day away from the city hustle then head to Valley Green. It's only a half hour away from center city, and is super easy to get to. We went for just the afternoon and it was the perfect mid-day break over the...

Happy Earth Day! Today I thought it most appropriate to share photos from a recent trip to Greensgrow, an urban farm in Philadelphia. They're doing amazing things there. Open year round, they have a nursery, farmstand, CSA and community kitchen on site. In addition to...

Learning Latte Art at La Colombe

Last Saturday I fancied myself a barista. La Colombe, a local coffee shop, roastery and distillery (yes they make booze too!) hosted a workshop on latte art. Let me tell you, it's a LOT harder than it looks. For the afternoon we had two instructors: Jonathan Amos, the...
