On Saturday, I took some photos for one of my favorite "clients" (my daughter) in my "natural light studio" (upstairs at her coffee shop). Those are BFF Bakery's Black Forest Muffins. BFF Bakery is very local and very good -- and they only sell wholesale right now, so if you want somethin' you'll just have to come and join me for a cuppa somethin' and a little somethin' else at the coffee shop!
The muffins go nicely with the Black Forest Mocha (she says, knowingly). Ali made the mocha with skim milk so I could have it afterwards. At any other time of year, the Black Forest Mocha is known as the Black Widow Mocha at the coffee shop, but that doesn't quite give the right Valentine vibe.
In other exciting news, new light fixtures!! We are all more in love with these than we probably should be -- but lighting is so important. We've made decisions about where to go for dinner, let's say, based on lighting. There are actually four, replacing some colored/textured glass fixtures that the previous owner wanted.
Can you believe it's been a year since Ali took over? It was Valentine's weekend last year that we had an army working to clean, paint and rearrange.
