Photographed by: Rachel Maucieri | Coffee Shop: Please and Thank You, Louisville KY

Rachel visited her family in Kentucky a few weeks ago and this is what she had to say about her day in Louisville:

Oh Louisville, I love you. This will always be the city where I feel like I truly became an artist. I think even though I was in art school at the time I would shy away from ever labeling myself that because I didn't think I was good enough. But now that I have grown up a little, and so has my craft, I can look back and have all the warm fuzzy feelings about Louisville because I do believe it helped birth the artist in me. Also, it was where Phil and I fell in love and got married, so there will always be the biggest place in my heart for this city.

Anyway, this post really has nothing to do with that other than to say that Please and Thank You was always one of my very favorite coffee shops to go to when I lived there and now when I visit it's a must. Not to mention their chocolate chip cookie is my absolute favorite ever. I always went to their location on Market St., but this last time I got a tip that there was a new location on Frankfort Ave., so I made it happen! It didn't disappoint, as always and if you're in the area you should definitely check it out. And bring me back a cookie!
