I Believe in Coffee...



I never knew just what it was about this old coffee shop I love so much...



I love coffee. Preferably a large iced coffee with cream and splenda from Dunkin Donuts to get my day going, but I like the idea of snuggling up with hot coffee too. It's just yummy and makes me happy and tastes delicious. It smells wonderful and brings people together. What's not to like?! I also like coffee shops. Two Story is heavenly and I must admit I feel cool when I go to Walker's.








Flash Rosenberg said "I believe humans get a lot done, not because we're smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee." 100%. I get way more done after having my coffee.




Go ahead, have another cup...

This I Believe

This semester I'm required to write a "This I Believe" paper. Our papers will be focused on what we believe about recreation, leisure and play but first we are asked the question in general: What do I believe or what do I believe in? So I made a list. A long list. And I've decided that for the rest of the semester, I'll blog about the things on that list. They will not be in any particular order, just whichever happens to be on my mind.

There is a whole This I Believe website full of essays from all kinds of people. So far, I like this one best. I didn't wash my car last month. Most of those people are far more insightful/inspiring/creative than me. I agree with some and disagree with some, as you will with my list. But here goes...

"Human kindness is overflowing, And I think it's going to rain today..."

I woke up this morning to find that it was 46 degrees and raining...so I cancelled class for the day....

Typically, I don't like hanging out by myself. I prefer being around people, even if we aren't even talking. But at this moment, snuggled up in the owl room watching the rain fall through the huge magnolia tree outside, listening to Mumford & Sons (thanks Liz) along with the rain, alone is kind of nice. And it seemed all to perfect for blogging.

"Sooo much has happened" since the last time I blogged (I turned 21, my little brother committed to a college, GA/FL, redbull chariot race--just to name a few), thus my thoughts are are allll over the place and you're going to have to do your best to keep up.

Last year, I'm certain it rained absolutely every single Tuesday. Rather than check the weather I simply checked the calendar. Recently, the rain has seemed to move on to Wednesdays. In Kate's words, "Wednesday is the new Tuesday for rain." But as you know, I delight in an occasional storm.


...I mean honestly, how could you not?





























Halloween is over, but look at this precious little nugget....



now to perfect my afternoon I'll combine these....

rain....


nap...



but I really would love to have one of these little guys to join me....
