Hope + Union.

As most of you could probably guess, I'm a pretty avid Design * Sponge reader. They've certainly rocked this design-blog world and created quite the niche for themselves...and a pretty extensive following. So, you can only imagine the excitement I was trying so hard to contain when I did my daily D*S perusing and stumbled across my very favorite downtown Charleston coffee shop, Hope + Union. It's a bit off the beaten path (by that I mean a sitting gem in an "up and coming" neighborhood...aka...mmm...a bit sketchy), but it's beyond amazing. The architecture (both exterior and interior)...the simplicity...the fact that they brew the very best coffee (Stumptown and Intelligentsia...shipped in daily) by the cup and serve their water and cream in brilliant glass bottles. I. LOVE. THIS. PLACE:

That window seat is the perfect, sunny little spot to cozy-up in for a delicious cup of brew and a few hours of uninterrupted work. Or a Saturday afternoon date with the hubby.

And...speaking of coffee...

Don't forget about KeepCup and the amazing 10% discount they're giving you maple and shaders! Head on over to their site and enter the unique code MAPLE when prompted and watch those dollars detract from your order :) Offer ends next Monday the 14th...so hurry and get it while you can. You really won't be sorry.

Off to work.

These cups are so great! Microwaveable, which is perfect for a slow coffee drinker like me. I am in love with coffee, and try to bring my own cups as much as possible. These are wonderful - thank you for the discount!
