Recently, I forgot my keys at home one morning.  Locked out and waiting for Adrienne to arrive, I trudged across the street from our office to investigate "the new coffee shop" in the 'hood.  Walking into Livia Bakery was like a step into how I imagine coffee shops used to be.

Welcome Brutus

You may have already met a new friend at Eastpoint. Brutus has been coming to work with his mom, Adrienne, a few days a week. We are still negotiating the terms of his contract, but he seems to be happy with unlimited naps, payment in the form of back scratches and food.
