First off, HUGE shout-out to Kiki and Amy for the topic of this month's The Circle. Is it not perfect? Well, it is for this barista.
1. Where are you seated (near the counter, near the window, near the door, against the wall, etc.)?
I'm the girl who has found the last table in the corner, by the window. I most likely have my head buried in a book, a bible study, and my ear buds in listening to NEEDTOBREATHE. Every once in awhile, I look up from my world to people watch or stare out the window watching people do life. But, I'll take the ear buds out for today, so I can hear you as you join me on this coffee date.
2. What are you sipping/munching on?
I have a big cup full of a delicious Vanilla Bean Latte (or a Chai Tea). You really can't go wrong with these, as they are just smooth and are comfort in a cup. Also, a banana nut muffin is somewhere nearby. Possibly already devoured.
3. What do you want to get off your chest first (can be as deep as you want)?
Where do I even begin, friend. There is this whole issue of waiting, first off. Why would I even choose that as my "word?!" Waiting is seriously the hardest thing to do sometimes, but what the Lord can do in those waiting times is incredible. I keep reminding myself that that is why I'm waiting. For Him to keep revealing himself, just as He's always done.
Then, there is just life in general. It's only the beginning of the year and already different opportunities have revealed themselves. Things that I never thought would come my way. But, here they are. Most will probably not be fulfilled, but the fact that they have been mentioned shows just what God can do! He truly knows the desires of our hearts, friend. I will always stand in amazement at the opportunities that He places in front of me. And I pray I never pass up on those chances. Wherever He leads me, that is the best adventure I could ever ask for.
4. If you could choose anyone (besides us of course) who would you have a coffee with?
Right now? My best friend. We are distanced 1400 miles from each other. Technology is amazing and I'm thankful for FaceTime, but sometimes, you just want to be in the same room as each other.
5. What is inspiring you lately?
So many things! Nature, books, photography, friends, writing (blogging), music, my jobs, pinterest. (ha! go figure on that last one.) I get to this point every once in awhile that I will have just sooo many ideas, wants, dreams, that I just can't narrow it done. I want to do nothing but lay in my hammock (with warmer weather though), read a book one hour, write in another hour, draw in another hour, and lay in silence another hour. I haven't created anything that is my own in awhile and its all building up inside and that creative flow just needs to come out before I burst. I honestly have so many thoughts and words in my head for some upcoming posts, I just can't find the way to get the words to screen.
6. What are your plans after coffee?
Well, after this coffee date I'm off to get ready for work. Then, after my first job it's lunchtime and then off to another job. After that, hopefully it will be an evening of relaxing, catching up on blogs, and maybe some reading. Oh, and I can't forget. It's Thursday, so that means I'll be watching Parenthood tonight! :)
I'm so glad you stopped by and had this little coffee date with me! If this is your first time here, please look around and I hope you will stay a little while.
