226. stumping for coffee

From Brooke Appler, Oakland CA. “Coffee date with my friend Alison, at Subrosa in Oakland. They have the cutest tree stump and terrarium decorations and serve Four Barrel coffee!”

I met Brooke on Christmas Eve at Chris and Christine’s. We discovered a shared love for blogging, bicycles, traveling, handmade stuff, photos of coffee, and the soon-to-be-born baby Avery. Luckily, she circled back with me, and shared oodles of coffee photos. She’s also the queen of bicycle camping, where I believe coffee is imperative.  Brooke’s illustration blog is Miss U, Love U, and her Etsy shop is Team Blue Bicycle. Flickr here and portfolio here.
