Coffee Date Sunday 12.29.13



Happy Sunday Friends!

If we were having coffee together…

I would say: Wow – I cannot believe 2013 is almost over! The Holiday’s were quiet but very enjoyable. Jordan and I spent many nights sitting in front of the glittery tree, counting the lights, looking at the delicate ornaments and writing letters to Santa. I very much enjoyed drinking my morning coffee in the soft glow of the tree… something that I love doing and it will be missed now that Christmas is over.

On Christmas morning, Jordan woke me up at 5AM. His laughter and joy woke me right up as he grabbed my hand and pulled me out into the living room. Santa had come! He opened his stocking and the presents from Santa. This year he asked for colored pencils, art pads and a skeleton/anatomy book. He’s either going to grow up and be an artist or a doctor! 😉

It was still way too early for coffee and somehow I ended up tip-toeing back to bed while Jordan was playing. I invited Jordan to come snuggle with me – he hesitated but we eventually fell asleep, waking back up at 8:30. I was very thankful for that extra sleep!

I made coffee (finally!), watched the Disney parade (which was disappointing!) and opened up the rest of the gifts that were under the tree. Such a glorious morning! It’s funny: I thought I was excited as a kid but I am even more excited for Christmas now that I am a Mom! ❤

If we were having coffee…

I would tell you that I am building a relationship with God.

I am in a point in my life where I felt that I was lacking structure. Accountability. Peace. Hope. I felt that I needed someone or something with me at all time. I have believed in certain aspects of faith and spirituality but never deep enough to feel content.


I have turned to praying – both in good times and bad – daily devotional journaling and surrounding myself with His word. It has been a blessing. And while I am still learning and far from perfect, I know that it doesn’t have to be perfect. I am not perfect and God doesn’t expect me to be perfect. But I am perfect for Him. And He is perfect for me.

If we were having coffee…

I would tell you that I have been wanting to deepen my Yoga practice.


In my search for more calm and peace in my life, becoming a yogi has interested me very much. From eating raw/vegan, meditating, living simply and consciously, it’s a lifestyle that I have always leaned towards and wanted more of. There are a few retreats that I have been eyeing and I am hoping that I can participate in them this upcoming year.

PS – Check out the talented Rachel Brathen! She’s in the picture above – so beautiful!

If we were having coffee…

I would give you a hug and tell you this:


If we were having coffee together…

I would hand you this from Jordan. Because he just loves drawing pictures and giving them to friends!
