Challenge: The August Break /// Day 1: Breakfast

The August Break: Day1 - Breakfast July was all about keeping busy and adventures, almost to the point of burn out (luckily the woods are calling and soon we'll be taking a much needed T/O with Mother Nature. In order to slow down life just a tad, I signed up for Susannah Conway's The August Break. This month long exercise is filled with 31 days of awesome subjects to shoot, like day one: breakfast. I couldn't resist posting the Fried Chicken and Waffles from Messhall. Located in Los Feliz, this kitchen has a delicious brunch and the cocktails are super fresh and bombastic. Interested in seeing what else I'll be posting? Join in by following us on instagram and be sure to head over Messhall to get your brunch on this weekend. While your at it, don't forget to sign up for The August Break too.
