I went to the Food exhibition at the Smithsonian today. I’m so grateful to live so close to DC that this was a painless trip. If you haven’t had the chance to, I highly recommend going!! It’s part of the permanent collection. You get to see old McDonalds packaging and learn about the origins of Pringles!!! Also there is some solid Berkeley face time in the exhibit. Also so much Julia Child, so great!!
Went to Trohv the other day and got inspired by some books, but couldn’t help but notice that a certain aesthetic is certainly being smashed over my head… Gotta figure out how to break free from it.
