If we were on a coffee date, I'd ask about your skin care routine. I have an intense battle with acne going on. I have for a decade now and just haven't found a routine that's working perfect for me. I'm hoping the new product I got in the mail over the weekend is going to rock my skin's world. One can hope right?
If we were on a coffee date, I'd rave about my favorite mascara: Fairy Drops. I randomly got it for the gold bottle and I love it... Especially since I tried a few different tubes for about six months and nothing can compare. I love a good old fashion beauty-off, but I'm thankful this is one that's come to an end. I'd tell you that I use primer, specifically this one, and that you should too.
If we were on a coffee date, I'd want to talk about hope. Lately, I can't help but think all about it. Where it comes from? How people maintain it? In what ways it anchors our souls? Hope, I'm fixated. I'd ask you if you're fixated on patterns and ideas that seem to be popping up consistently in your life. I'd want to know how you digest them, maintain them, think on them.
If we were on a coffee date, I'd share that I'm frustrated with how much baby talk happens at this stage in marriage and life. I realize people are excited for us to have babies -in fact, I want them so desperately some days- but it seems just as exciting to be taking time to travel and be married sans children. I know there's only so many times you can talk about work and the house, but let's skip the part where we're talking about the population (or prospective population) of my vagina please.
If we were on a coffee date, I'd tell you that running has become an addiction of sorts lately. That yes, I could sleep in, but that asphalt under my shoes, the sound of pounding along the dirt, the huffing and puffing that can be hillsides, are alluring and tempting and lovely. Maybe part of it is because of Born to Run?
If we were on a coffee date, I'd acknowledge out loud how life is so much a journey of learning. Learning how to balance, to communicate, to respond, to respect, to love, to enjoy, to all the things. It's such a journey and it's beautiful and I've always said I'm a forever student. BUT, right now, I want a little break from the learning, is that too much to ask?
If we were on a coffee date, I'd ask for a bit of encouragement. I'd be thankful, so thankful, for the way you're His mouthpiece for a girl that's not really that good at hearing Him speak.
- - - - - - - - - - -If we were on a coffee date, I'd mention this posted last week (in time with the Robin Williams' post) for just about an hour before I woke to realize two posts went live at the same time. You'd give me grace, because you're awesome, and I'd tell you my ability to keep organized is so messy as of late.
