If we were having coffee

I've seen a bunch of bloggers do this lately (or in 2013) and though I may a little late to the game, I'm participating now. So here we go...

If we were having coffee... I'd tell you how lost I feel about what it is I want to do with my life, job wise. How jealous I am of my friends who genuinely like what they do and have found their calling in life.

If we were having coffee... I'd really enjoy being out with a friend, because I miss mine so very much. I'd tell you how difficult it is to build relationships outside of school or work. And since I haven't been in school for 7 years and I work with all older people, it's been really hard.

If we were having coffee... I'd brag on my husband and tell you he's the most amazing man and I'm so very lucky. I'd tell you how much better we are together and then I'd stop because I don't want to make you feel bad because we're awesome and stupid in love still.

If we were having coffee... I'd pull out my phone and show you way too many pictures of Finley. I'd tell you all about our little fur ball and how much I adore him.

If we were having coffee... I might ask your opinion on getting a perm, since I'm so bored with my hair. You'd probably laugh and say no way and I'd defend perms because they've come such a long way from the 9'0's...or so they say.

If we were having coffee... I'd share how I'm participating in this summer reading challenge and started off pretty strong but just can't get through Anne of Green Gables because she is annoying. I'd tell you how I don't get how everyone loves her and I kind of just want her to shut up. I'd ask if that was bad and not really care if it was.

If we were having coffee... I'd gripe about Dave's work travel schedule and how he went in to work on Monday and found out his flight out of state was at 3 pm THAT day. I'd share that I miss him when he's gone but it's nothing compared to a deployment and I know that, but he's not in the Army anymore so I can whine about it if I want to. After all, he's really my only friend here (other than my mom).

If we were having coffee... I'd probably come on too strong and try to make us besties right out of the gate. It's what I do....let's jump right in!


  1. Please don't perm your hair... and you can come on too strong anytime! I like most things strong... especially my coffee! haha so glad you jumped on the bandwagon and did this!

  2. I love these posts. Not only do I feel like the reader learns so much about the writer, but it's genuine! And sometimes, on mornings when I'm sipping my coffee by myself, it's nice to remember what coffee dates feel like ;)

    I have to tell you- I hope you take comfort in knowing you are not alone in not knowing what you want to do with your life. But do you realize that you are on your way to figuring it out? My husband, when we were dating, told me, "The stir that happens is the beginning of change. And sometimes change can be painful... but it's already in motion to something beautiful." I have kept that reminder close so many times :) I have had multiple jobs that I've been happy in, and then no longer happy in. So I made a change and I think am finally on a path to what my soul longs to do. You will find your path, you will!

    (I am laughing over Cassie's comment about not perming your hair... the only thing I have to say about that is I did it when I was younger and some of my hair fell out. True story. Never again.)


I love hearing from you so please leave a comment, however keep in mind "Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."
