This just makes me smile. We’ve been on a lot of coffee/hot chocolate dates lately. We bring books & read. We chit chat. We especially love the sale book cart parked in the Starbucks at B&N. Tractors & bugs are the topics of choice. Always. Even cry baby, her favorite baby doll, takes part in our dates. I wouldn’t trade them for anything. I know they’ll never be quite the same as they are right now & I am making the most of them.
Coffee shops have been a large part of my life. My first date with my hubby was at one. He took me to one minutes before he proposed. I did most of the work that earned me a college degree at the one in the Marketplace in San Ramon. We went to one the morning of our wedding, just to have a moment alone. We used to go every Sunday morning in Omaha…I’d read the paper while he studied & we watched the snow fall. These days, I go with my sweet girl. or my girlfriends. and sometimes…once in a blue moon…alone. But I love the quiet. I was never a bar girl. I much prefer acoustic music, a cozy chair, & something good to read. I hope I raise kiddos who feel the same way. Good things happen at coffee shops. Sometimes really good things.
