Happy Sunday, friends!
How was your week? I feel like the first week of a new month is always pretty hectic -especially with the realization that we are already halfway through the year.
This week was definitely a hectic one for me, but exciting nonetheless. I mentioned on Friday that I’m rebranding and starting fresh. I spent the weekend prepping lots of things for the new blog -preparing the editorial calendar, reviewing all of your (incredibly awesome & helpful) survey responses, and working on brand identity and logo concepts. It’s all been really exciting and inspiring to work on, and I can’t wait to share more of the process and end result with all of you.
Saturday was definitely my favorite day of the weekend. I spent the afternoon coffee shop hopping and city exploring with Jordan. I invited her to tag along as I explored a new coffee shop for today’s post. Nothing makes me happier than good coffee and great friends. We took time to chat, blog and enjoy the summer weather -everything that the PHL Coffee Adventure is about!
This week, I popped into Elixr Coffee and had an amazing iced coffee (pictured above). I added vanilla, creamer and cinnamon to sweeten my deal, but I definitely could have enjoyed this brew black. I loved the warm and work-friendly atmosphere there, and it’s definitely on my list of places to return to. All of the baristas were super friendly and helpful, and helped Jordan and I find our way to our ideal brews. After Exlir, we popped over to Miel Patisserie for macarons and blogging.
Here are some snaps from my cafe hopping, plus my favorite links from the week…
