It’s been awhile since we sat down for a coffee date. It always feels too long in between but maybe this feels especially long. I feel like I don’t have much too offer in coffee dates lately – besides tears or random confessions about how I am freaking out. “Am I going crazy!? I am right!” I’ll exclaim once or twice.
In the newest way (because I’ve totally learned this lesson before in other settings) I am learning that I don’t always have to be perfect or put together. I guess when you quit your job to follow your dreams you feel a lot of pride & excitement with a lot of fear and doubt. I think that is what is making me feel crazy. Also plus a huge case of senioritis makes finishing my job well slightly difficult 😉
The timing has never felt so right. It feels like quitting to blog full time has always been the plan – but it hasn’t. I love looking back to see how the Lord slowly started putting it on my heart and opening doors. There were lots of conversations, posts, photos, and lessons that needed to happen before I could turn in my two weeks but they all lead me here. You ask if I have a count down, I do – nine work days. Nine.
I reminisce on the coffee date we had nearly a year ago – babies, jobs, funny moments, more memories, leaps of faith, and so much more have filled that year. Man, I am so thankful for you! Without you I wouldn’t be where I am today. I mean that. You’re friendship is so very valuable to me.
Yes, I need the coffee so I’m totally sipping the real stuff. Straight black coffee is my jam and there is something about holding the warm mug in my hand that slows me down & comforts me. I need grounding moments more than ever these days. Reminding me to breath, sip, rest, savor, and be. It’s my #coffeeconfession (you can share yours on twitter too if you want.) Also thankful for this giant Genuine Thermos® Brand Bottle so that we can have hot coffee wherever & whenever we want it. Home coffee dates are special too and I love having you over!
PS: You have to come look at these flowers I planted! I’m really hoping to keep them alive this summer! #goals – I’m really proud of myself about this little project. It is kinda silly but just the fact that I did something for fun and outside of my normal “thing” makes me so proud! lol.
Oh man. There is so much to talk about and so much to do. We’ll just sit a little longer because we both need more moments of silence and stillness. In just a few weeks things will change and I don’t really know what life will look like but we’ll figure it out. It’s okay not knowing it all. I’m just trying to enjoy each day for the gift it is and honestly dreaming of sleeping in. hehehe. I am SO ready to sleep in!
The house is getting more crowded so I guess it’s time for our next adventure. Good thing we got our coffee & quality time in! Until next time.
