Coffee Talk 06.13.21

Well, this bizarre school year is officially one for the books! Caroline's high school graduation party last Sunday was a success, and Becca's last day of school was Friday. Unfortunately, we did not get our typical warm and sunny last-day-of-school weather, which seems ironically appropriate for this unconventional school year.

Coffee Talk: Graduation Edition

Happy Sunday, friends! We're having a graduation party for Caroline this afternoon, and I have a lot to do, so I'll need to keep this Coffee Talk short and sweet. Yes, our middle child graduated from high school this week. Her ceremony was on Thursday.

Coffee Talk 05.30.21

Well, here are, at the end of another month. It’s hard to believe, but 2021 is almost half over. Are we having fun yet? Haha… I suppose the answer to that question largely depends on where you live. We are slowly getting back to normal around here.

Coffee Talk 05.23.21

Greetings, friends! I feel like I haven’t done one of these in a while, although I guess I only skipped one week. It’s been busy over here, juggling appointments for the kids, my work commitments, and our social activities that seem to be ramping up now that the weather has gotten nicer.

Happy Mother’s Day + Evereve Sale #CoffeeTalk

Good morning, and happy Mother's Day to all the mommas out there! Even if you don't have children of your own, I'm sure you are special to many. Women have a way of mothering even if we aren't biological or adoptive mothers.

Coffee Talk 05.02.21

It's been a few weeks since I sat down and had coffee with you guys, so I'm not sure where to begin. Not to suggest that I have something exciting to talk about... you know how it is. Life feels so busy, but that doesn't mean there's much to say about it.

15 Years #CoffeeTalk

My 15-year "blogiversary" came and went last month without much fanfare. I had planned to take the obligatory balloon pictures and make a big deal of it, but life got busy, and time got away from me. Now that a few weeks have passed, it seems a little anticlimactic to do something like that, but I wanted to at least document it with a post.

Happy Easter! #CoffeeTalk

Good morning, and happy Easter! It’s a joyful day for Christians around the world, and we’ll be celebrating this morning at a local church here in Cape Coral, Florida. I always find it a bit odd not to be at my home church on Easter Sunday, but I’m so thankful for the freedom to worship in...

Coffee Talk 03.28.21

Yesterday, I had a few hours to sit and hang out BY MYSELF for what felt like the first time in a year, and it was GLORIOUS! I'm sure it wasn't the only time I've had a few hours to myself this year, but then again, I can't remember the last time I did that.

Coffee Talk 03.21.21

Well, friends! It’s officially spring, and our weather seems to have gotten the memo! I am feeling hopeful and anticipating all good things. My mom had a lot of sayings that I heard over and over when I was growing up, and they tend to come back to me at the oddest times.

Coffee Talk 03.14.21

Greetings, and happy Daylight Savings! Thank goodness for smart technology. When I woke up this morning, my phone, the clock beside my bed (Echo Dot), and my watch (Apple Watch) were already synched to the new time. I will never understand why my car can't do the same thing.
