Coffee Talk 09.19.21

Happy Sunday, friends! I don’t have a lot of time to chat this morning, but I skipped Coffee Talk last week, and quite a few of you reach out to see if we were okay, so I didn’t dare skip it again. Kidding… I know y’all understand that it doesn’t always work out. There are...

Coffee Talk 09.05.21

Well, it has certainly been A WEEK. I had to look back at my calendar to check and see if this really was the first week of school. It seems like at least two weeks ago. But yes, it was only Tuesday that I put Becca on the school bus for her first day of her sophomore year, and by Thursday, schools all over our area were closed.

Coffee Talk: College Drop-Off Edition

Well, good morning! I'm back home from moving my daughter into college in Massachusetts. It's been a whirlwind of a weekend. In true Shane fashion, we had to battle a hurricane to get back home, but all's well that ends well!

Well, we're already half-way through another month, and this is the big one! In just a few days, we pack up two cars and head up the east coast to deposit our daughter at college for the first time. I won't wax eloquent yet again on all the thoughts and feelings swirling around in my head and heart, but it's been a week, let's just put it that way.

Coffee Talk 08.08.21

Wow, it's been a full weekend over here! I don't remember the last time we've been out two nights in a row. It's sort of like getting back from vacation; I feel like I need another weekend to recover from my weekend.

Coffee Talk 08.01.21

Greetings and salutations on this first day of August! I have a lump in my throat, writing that. The countdown is officially on. We take my daughter to college on August 19th, and I think it’s safe to say, none of us are quite ready for this. It’s definitely a new frontier.

Well, here we are, rounding out another month of this unpredictable year! I'm in complete denial that August is just around the corner, and I the only one?

Happy Sunday, friends! I didn’t manage to get this post up before church today, but I didn’t want to leave it till next week, so here we are! It’s been an insane week for many reasons, of course the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale being one of them — but not the only one. There’s a lot...
