I love coffee shops.

I love the smell, the lights, the ambiance, the comfy couches, live music, local art, scones, and the "stay as long as you want" vibe.

Friday night I got to combine some of my very favorite things: the coffee shop, friends, family, my man, soy lattes, acoustic guitar, social justice, my sketchbook, my camera, freedom, and creative collaboration.
Ryan Adcock-- singer/songwriter/photographer/freedom fighter-- raising money for his trip to South Africa. Go Ryan!
Working on an illustration project.

My favorite dude and 2 other pretty favorite dudes.

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Miss Ruby!!! Thanks for inviting us to your rad party!

You're so cute it hurts!
p.s.-- do you know if your skirt comes in adult sizes??

Well, HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to you all! Hope it's full of love and dark chocolate!

p.p.s.-- no word yet on the results of the Owl City video contest. I confess I was eagerly waiting by my computer at midnight on Friday night when voting ended, hoping the results would be posted at 12:01. After hitting "refresh" about 25 times, I finally just went to bed. I actually have no idea when they will post the winners. The rules are unclear on that. (Wait, let me go hit refresh again....nope, still nothing) Guess we'll find out when we find out! : )

I miss the coffee shops of New York. Here in London, it's not stay as long as you want, it's stay for a while, then we get a bit funny about it.
