It’s a beautiful book, and Emily spent much of 2012 photographing each and every image that appears in it (other than her head shot of course), at visits to Washington, DC restaurants either early in the morning, during lunch, and after work, while still managing to excel …

AFBA and the Austin to Boston Food Swap

Throughout December, many of my blogger friends were posting daily on Facebook and their blogs about one thing per day that they were grateful for. There are many things and people in my life that I am thankful to have in my life, but as we enter this new year, I’m feeling especially happy to have a strong network of blogger friends — both near and far.
