I’m so glad you could join me for Virtual Coffee Tuesday. We have so much to talk about….Come in!
I would start out by offering you a delicious cup of my New England Hawaiian Macadamia Nut coffee. It is so good(!!) and then lead you outside so we can sit in the brisk October air to talk.
I’d start out by letting you know how sick we’ve all been. What started as something simple, so I thought, like pink eye turned into an all out full body infection in both Easton and I. It was quite a doozie which caused me to miss 3 days of work. I haven’t been out like that in a long time.
I’d tell you all about the trip we’re getting ready to go on this weekend. It’s our 2nd year going to Gatlinburg for Halloween and I am so excited! The resort we stay at is on a mountain and overlooks all the other beautiful mountains in the area. Last year we hit it right at peak for the changing of the leaves. It’ll be interesting to see how far they’ve come this year. Oh, and did I mention they have an indoor water park!?
I’d tell you I’ve been working on my 30 before 30 list. It’s a list of 30 things I’d like to do before I turn 30. I plan on posting that on my birthday which gives me one full year to complete the task…
And last but not least I’d tell you in such excitement that I got a new camera! Check it out!!! Isn’t it a beauty!?
I would tell you all the great features it has as tears start welling up in my eyes. You see, I’m really truly riddled with guilt for buying this thing! You’d remind me that I never buy anything for myself. Even down to the clothes I wear. About 95% of them are others hand-me-downs. You’d tell me that any extra money I ever seem to have always goes to the kids or to do something fun with the family. And I would respond….”But isn’t that supposed to be what Mom’s do?”
It’s time for you to go. The coffee has been great. I get up and hug you as tears swell up again. Talking to you has reminded me so much of talking to my mom. Just talking about everyday life. I miss her so much….and then I lead you to the door.
Thanks so much for stopping by~until next Tuesday….xoxo
