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.
