For the Love of Cafés

We’re probably all feeling the same way these days when it comes to cozy-ing up on the weekends and being shamelessly mellowed out. Something about the middle of January just does that to us, huh? Lately all we’ve been wanting to do is curl up at local cafés, kindle in hand, latte on the table, and just unwind. How divine to these spaces look? Makes you want to design a little corner/oasis right in your apartment, doesn’t it?

We’re hoping that this New England snow storm is just mild enough that we can still meet up in Boston, but wintery enough that we can wander out and search for a cozy café like these…

Happy Tuesday, friends! We hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend doin whatever you were doin! I had a lovely leisurely weekend walk over to Elizabeth Park on Saturday afternoon with Curtis. We had not a plan in the world and decided to grab a frisbee, some snacks, and walked over to the park. Our favorite part about living in the West End of Hartford is being in walking distance to some of our favorite restaurants and bars, but especially our short distance to Elizabeth Park. We grabbed some coffee and iced tea from Tisane’s, and then headed over. We were pleasantly surprised that the Rose Garden had a 2nd wave of blooms that happen this time of year, so we wandered around looking at all of the roses, herb gardens and wild flowers.
