Queen Bee Coffee Shop has become such a happy place for me.
Alicia and Micah are so welcoming, so nice, and SO supportive of the local community - including my own ways of trying to give back! I've asked a few places over the years about starting a Drawing Club for kids, and have gotten mixed responses that have all ended up as thanks but no thanks.
When I suggested it to Alicia and Micah last year, it was an instant yes. Bring it on, let these kids come to a free drawing night once a month, do what you need to do. I heart these people so much because they just make Queen Bee Coffee Shop feel like home to me!
If you've been to Queen Bee Coffee Shop in the square in McDonough, Georgia, can you find all the bits and pieces of Queen Bee I worked into this piece?
For our family, the happiest place in the world isn't Disney or any place like that (waaaay too crowded), some tropical beach somewhere (far too hot and boring) a golf course, shopping mall or spa. It's our home sweet backyard!
In March 2020, four days before my flight to Buenos Aires, Argentina closed the borders due to the COVID-19 pandemic and I had to fly from Rio to Brasília immediately. My siblings live here in a beautiful residential complex and they are almost neighbors of each other. It's only 30 minutes from the center of town, but still looks a bit wild, almost like being in the countryside. And that's where I've been stuck ever since. I thank them all heartily. Love, love, love, love.
/// I feel good here with my family, but I also want to express my immense sadness for Brazil, my country that I love so much, for having one of the largest numbers of coronavirus victims in the world. So many deaths could have been prevented.
Taking a stroll around the block after dinner to pick fallen and overhanging fruits over public footpath.
My dog Bonzo LIVES for walks and runs. She loves sniffing, watching for squirrels, and meeting new people! And being part Husky, she's always on the go go go. This walk is our favorite together in any weather.
This is a map of my favorite restaurants, bakeries, bars and coffee shops in Logan Square. I recently moved away from this neighborhood and this is my way of reminiscing not only the place itself but a seemingly so distant time of wonderfully packed gatherings, edible explorations and convivial conversations. In this time of masked smiles and gloved gestures, I wanted to focus on their always friendly, familiar faces and that made any cup of coffee, glass of wine or bowl of soup so enjoyable not only for the body but for the soul. These small businesses are strongly surviving such time, carefully, graciously and more than ever passionately giving us flavors and feelings of hope and happiness to come.
I live in Kamogawa City, Chiba Prefecture in Japan. Chiba is next to Tokyo, but if you go south for about two hours, you will arrive in the idyllic countryside.
Facing the sea where surfers gather, it is a great location surrounded by mountains, rice terraces and fields.All of the pictures I have drawn here are my favorite places. A delicious vegan cafe, a farm-to-table cafe where you can eat wild herbs, a natural yeast bakery, a botanical dyeing clothes shop, a library with exciting books, and a beautiful rape field.
Take a walk and discover these secret courtyards called "hofjes" in Amsterdam's Jordaan neighborhood. Originally built as housing for retired nuns, widows and older single women, these charming houses surrounding courtyard gardens are wonderful places to sneak a peak. Some of them are now home to music students and artists and you may even catch a concert or open atelier on your stroll. A few of my favorite hofjes are pictured! :)
This is my usual stomping ground during lockdown, I must have done this walk over 100 times! There's not usually much to see, just the usual dog walkers, squirrels, joggers, and occasionally the odd helicopter carrying a vehicle!
The evening is the best time for a little walk, just around the corner. The streets are calm, the people are at home and (… that’s the best, I admit it …) they turn their lights on! So you can see all that little stories of live behind the windows. And our cat? Feely is always very enthusiastic at the at the start, but she remembers her personal limits quite quickly. So only some big Meows follow me and a reproachful but relieved cat waits for me at the end. So we draw together a map about our walk in honour to that all-day-pleasures. And – as in every good map – there’s an unknown territory: the reign of the Grey Cat! (One day we’ve been there … but that is a story for another map!)
I took a long walk on saturday to explore my neighborhood but was massively disappointed. If you’ve ever visited Vienna in winter you know that we have barely snow here and it’s dizzy and foggy most of the time. While I walked down my favourite path I thought about summer and autumn where the weather is nice, the grass green and the area covered with grapevines. So I thought about: why not showing the path in my mind instead of the grey environment?
This map shows me and my dog's two favourite routes in my neighbourhood. We like to go up to the park on the hill where we can enjoy the whole city view. Our second favourite route is to a little creek where we can meet a lot of other dogs.
This map shows a typical urban hike I might take from my apartment on the island of Södermalm in Stockholm, Sweden. I start with the overlook at Monteliusvägen, continue through Mariatorget, the square in my neighborhood, then I continue over to the lookout from Skinnarviks park, where you can see Stadshuset (city hall) and the apartments along Norr Mälarstrand. From there, I head to the allotment gardens located in Tanto park, then a stop by Fabrique bakery where I might pick up a tasty cinnamon bun or fresh loaf of levain bread for an afternoon fika (coffee break). On my way back to my apartment, if it is the weekend, a stop by Röde Orm to pick up a pizza dough for homemade pizza is a must!
