if we were on a coffee date, we wouldn't go to starbucks. we probably would sit in my kitchen and the coffee I made you wouldn't look like the photo above. I'd probably just offer you some milk and maybe some sugar, if you would like it.
I'd tell you that I drink coffee every day and that first sip is one of my favorite things ever. I'd tell you that my work has this fancy espresso machine so I usually just drink my coffee there in front of my computer but I relish weekends when I make it at home.
I'd tell you that I am so excited for my blog, for my shop-- that I have so many ideas and a huge project I'm working on, but sometimes I feel like I have so little time.
I'd also tell you that I feel so grateful that we're talking and that I have people that have been encouraging me. I'd tell you that I am so blessed to have a husband who is one of my biggest cheerleaders.
I'd tell you that I want a clean house but I'm not always sure how to balance everything. Leaning across the table, I'd whisper that my vaccuum doesn't work and hasn't worked for awhile.
Then I'd feel old and boring because we were talking about vaccuums. So I would ask how you were doing-- what you were excited about.
We'd probably have a second cup. My dog would beg for attention and I'd have to reach down and scratch his ears. I'd tell you that I never thought I'd be one of those crazy pet parents... but that I probably am one.
I'd confess some weird things about me-- that I recycle and compost with conviction (so Seattle)-- that my thighs are super sore from working out yesterday-- and that I've been wanting to bake cherry pie.
So how are you doing? What would you tell me if we had a coffee date? If you blog it-- go link up with Alissa at Rags to Stitches.
happy, happy Friday friends!
