It's sort of crazy how many good food and drink pictures sit in the archives of my phone. I'm constantly snapping away and saving them for a rainy day. I hope you enjoy the mash up!


  1. What a delicious two months! I feel so lucky to live just a few blocks from Branch Line. I can't get enough!

  2. All so yummy. I haven't been to Branchline in a year. I need to change that!

  3. RM and I walked through Eatly a few weekends ago but didn't have time to hang out long (or have a Spritz, which is my FAVORITE drink!)- we are dying to go back and your dish there is one of our favorites! We were also just talking about how we need to go back to Branchline... such good food!
