Coffee Date || 22

If we were on a coffee date, I'd be drinking a vanilla latte but dreaming of the cold brew coffee I was consuming in February. It's cold in California again and, while I love it, I was enjoying the sandals and cold brew that came with love in my afternoons.

If we were on a coffee date, I'd want to talk about gardens. I'm getting some small sprouts in mine and there's something about the new life of spring that makes my heart skip a beat. I think I could spend all the days of my March out there staring at what's breaking through the darkness of the soil. I'd ask you about the prospective fruits and veggies of your labor this spring.

If we were on a coffee date, I'd be wearing my hot pink, glow in the dark retainer. You'll probably think that we've been transported back to middle school and our preteen years, but I have a few teeth that settled crookedly. Jason encouraged me to get a retainer so I did... And now my teeth are being moved back to their straight place which will be lovely but goodness my teeth are so sore.

If we were on a coffee date, I'd ask you what Sabbath means to you. The words Rachel wrote on this has me pondering how I can bring intentional resting places in to each of my days -even if just minor slices of restfulness.

If we were on a coffee date, I'd question you about morning routines. As on offshoot of the Sabbath conversation, I'd admit that I'm terrible at making peace in my mornings. The last few weeks have been full of running out the door like a woman on fire. I find myself irritated with Hazel as she casually strolls around the garage before loading up, but maybe she's got the right attitude and I need an adjustment.

If we were on a coffee date, I'd celebrate with you. I'm not sure what we're celebrating yet, but you'd share a success from this last few weeks and we'd celebrate. Big, small, or in between, I want our friendship to be one that fist bumps and cheers each other on.

If we were on a coffee date, I'd tell you that I'm drowning in good, fascinating books lately. I'm going to knock the reading socks off March with more books than I've read in a single month so far because Audible had a sale this last week. I only picked up four audiobooks and don't mind that I've finished two.

If we were on a coffee date, I'd push you to do something out of your comfort zone this month. I'd dare you and make you tell me what you plan to do because I'm going to check in with you next month at this time. You're going to shy away at first, but the things is I'll do the same. By this time next month, I want to have put a dozen new prints up into the shop. A dozen sounds like a doozy just saying it to you, but I shall, I shall, I shall.
