a Handsome latte | Nicely making deliciousness at Myrtle (Will knew him in Venice, what a small world) | bean perfection | almond flour pancakes w/banana + citrus, scrambled eggs w/ sweet potato + spinach + avocado | fluff | Barnsdall Park trees | the Great Lawn | gratuitous lens flare on the Hollyhock House | lovely hill

Kicked off the weekend with an awe-inspiring volunteer orientation at 826LA – I’m so amazed at all that they do, followed by deliciousness at Mohawk Bend before heading to the Myrtle Valentines shindig where my Seattle girl heart was stolen by the perfect latte from Handsome Coffee. The rest of the weekend was a blur of relaxing and Harry Potter watching and we wrapped things up with a sunset visit to Barnsdall, where I obviously had more than enough photo ops. It was such a gorgeous, clear weekend and the park was a perfect end to a great weekend.

    I always associate lattes and coffee shops with weekends. And brunch of course… All of which I did manage to have, but no gorgeous pictures like yours.

    I’ve been missing L.A. so much lately. Maybe it’s the urge to no thane to wear a jacket, I don’t know… But the photos of the Griffith Observatory aren’t helping me out.

    I love Barnsdall. It’s picnic central. Have you taken the tour of the hollyhock house yet? It’s definitely worth doing, especially if you have some out of town guests to amuse.

    Beautiful. We have been to LA three times to visit family there, but I still feel there is so much more to explore. I think I’d like to go to Barnsdall Park!

    Wasn’t it the best weekend in recent memory??


    Kate Reply:

    This past week has been perfection weather-wise. Though I will say I’m kind of excited for the rain that’s coming for a little change! Ha, I’m such a southern californian for saying that…

    It was nice meeting you at Myrtle this weekend! Did you happen to try a cookie? :)


    Kate Reply:

    You too, Sara! Maybe I’ll see you at the small business meet up at Reform School in a couple weeks? I saw your name on the email list. I actually didn’t try a cookie because I stopped eating gluten and sugar recently, but I kind of wished that I’d cheated now. I felt too dumb to say that before because it makes me sound like one of those obnoxious people with food restrictions, ha!


    Sara/Matchbox Kitchen Reply:

    Yes, I’ll be there!
    Best wishes giving up gluten and sugar, I tried to do a cleanse and couldn’t even last one day!


    Natalie (Fashion Intel) Reply:

    I too gave up gluten, sugar & dairy and it has almost been a month now. I’ve never felt better! Would love to swap recipes with you Kate. Have you been to Cafe Gratitude yet? A must on my list, so delicious. P.S. Wanted to check in to see that you received my email response.

    Handmade and Damn Handsome. How do people come up with names like this? Genius. That’s exactly what I’ve always thought about my morning coffee, but I just never managed to put it into words.
