Mission Coffee is a small coffee shop in the Short North. Located in a former garage (the windows in the big garage door let in a lot of natural light!), the coffee shop has a cool yet cozy and welcoming atmosphere. Mission opened its doors in 2011 by coffee enthusiasts Jonathan Starr and Jared Williamson.
Yesterday's photo of the day is of the paint we used in last night's Wine and Canvas: Toulouse-Lautrec Edition at the Columbus Museum of Art. I'll be posting a review here soon! Read my review of the Columbus Museum of Art from when Kenneth and I visited in September here!

This past Friday my sister, Brittney, and I attended the launch of Dressed, the new multi-media concept fashion series by Azmara Asefa. Azmara is a local Columbus designer and alumna of the Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP) program that my sister is currently in at the University of Cincinnati. Part 1 of Dressed is Body Cartography and the concept launch was held at The Garden Theater this past Saturday.

It's still cold and snowy here in Columbus... spring feels so far away! To help myself think warmer thoughts, I had a bright green salad for lunch. I'm not usually a big salad eater (I'm working on it though!), but this Sweet Kale salad from Eat Smart is delicious! It is advertised as having seven superfoods: kale, chicory, green cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, roasted pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries and a poppyseed dressing.
Spring is only 15 days away!

I got a new haircut today! I had short hair four years ago, but decided to grow it out after Kenneth and I got married. This was the first time I had really long hair and I wanted a change. It's going to take some getting used to - but I like the new cut and am excited to play with it!

How did I see these gorgeous redbuds blossoms at the beginning of March in Columbus? Kenneth and I went to the Home & Garden Show today - I took a ton of photos which I will share with you on the blog soon. It was wonderful to be around so many green and vibrant plants!

I love tea!
So the small things came into their own: small acts of helping others, if one could; small ways of making one's own life better: acts of love, acts of tea, acts of laughter. Clever people might laugh at such simplicity, but, she asked herself, what was their own solution?
