All right ya'll, I wouldn't usually post about something other than fashion, but I figured now is as good a time as any to clue you in on why I have been so MIA lately. 

Not many of you know, but I grew up working in my parent's cookie and coffee shop, where I started my long career in customer service at age six. And now, many years later, we are opening a breakfast restaurant! There is so much work that goes into owning and operating a small business. Taking pictures of, and taste testing all this fabulous food chief among them! I would be remiss to say that we haven't encountered our fair share of setbacks, but am happy to report that we will be fully functional in about a month (finally!). So, if you ever find yourself in the Denver area, be sure to swing by and see me! 

P.S. I sincerely apologize for my infrequent comings and goings here on RWF (and my lack of support lately for my fellow bloggers), and greatly appreciate your patience while I figure out my new schedule (6am openings mean 4am wake-up calls, and early to bed without much time for outfit pictures). To make up for it, feel free to ogle this photo of my dad's "world famous" cinnamon rolls. You're welcome! 


  1. Wow congrats Alexandra! This is so exciting and these pics are making me hungry. Everything looks delish.

  2. sounds amazing! Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day!

  3. I agree with Natasha, breakfasts are also my favourite meals! Please start an "acrossthenorthatlanticdeliveryservice" :-)
    All the best for your new business, Alexandra and please keep us updated on how everything is going. Recipes are always much appreciated too...

  6. Why?! Why did I have to find this post when I am hungry, lol! Your food photos are great, Alexandra! Congrats on this endeavor!

  7. Kudos to you for opening a breakfast restaurant. I know that is a lot of hard work so I wish you all the best. I will have to stop by whenever I'm in your neck of the woods...at least to get that delicious looking cinnamon roll in my tummy.

    p.s. - i have another tattoo on the back of my neck as well. Been meaning to get another one (possibly on my side, possibly words) but haven't committed to it yet (a.k.a. - i'm lazy).
