We haven’t chatted for a while and the holiday season was super hectic. I’d love to check in with you. I’m sure a lot has happened and I want to hear all about it. So let’s meet up for coffee and brunch. I’ve heard about this popular spot that I’ve meant to try. Can we meet around eleven?
If we were having coffee right now, I’d ask you how was your “New Year” celebration and what exciting things did you get into that weekend..? I’m sure it was more exciting than mine. I didn’t do much except for eating far too much and spend time with family(traditionally in Haitian culture we celebrate a battle in our history that was won on the first of the year with a special soup, joumou).
If we were having coffee right now, I’d tell you that a Winter storm is expected to hit the East coast this weekend and I’m not looking forward to my time shoveling the sidewalk and driveway. I love to watch the snow fall but clean up is a complete bitch especially when people walk through what you just shoveled. I wrote about that last year here, it’s one of my pet peeves.
If we were having coffee right now I’d ask if you’ve made any new year resolutions. I don’t, but I am trying to be more adventurous this year. I want to travel more, enjoy more, and live more. I’ve always had money troubles to worry about in the past and I’m determined to not let small things get in my way this year.What are you trying to do differently this year?
If we were having coffee right now I’d tell you that I’m celebrating my blog’s anniversary. It has been a rocky year with it but I love it just the same. This outlet has challenged me in numerous ways and has gotten me out of my comfort zone in others. What are you doing to challenge yourself, creatively or otherwise?
If we were having coffee right now I would let you know that I haven’t been doing well to keep on my diet. Not a weight loss plan but a lifestyle change to keep up with health and fitness that I had started two years ago and by Fall last year, I had “fallen away” from it and I’m not happy about it. So I need to get my routine back with exercise more often and leave the processed foods alone. Are you exercising regularly?
If we were having coffee right now I’d tell you how I miss cooking and baking as much as I used to. I follow lots of lovely blogs and watch beautiful shows, but I haven’t found the time to be in the kitchen alone and just cook from inspiration and not from hunger. There is a difference you know? I want to get back to that and maybe post a couple of things on the blog if I’m especially pleased with the results. Do you bake?
If we were having coffee right now I would have ordered the avocado toast and maybe a couple of scrambled eggs before telling you that I finally bought a planner to get better organized (please don’t laugh). I’m tired of forgetting dates, times and people’s birthdays. And I’ve accepted the fact that electronic calendars aren’t enough for me. How do you stay organized?
If we were having coffee right now I’d be telling you that I ordered my first adult coloring book, I haven’t gotten it yet but I hear it’s a great stress reliever and I always need one of those and I genuinely missed coloring even before it was a fad. Have you broken down and gotten a coloring book yet?
I’m praying that we get to do this again soon. Next time you pick the place.
I’d love to hear all your answers to my questions in the comments below, as always I’d love to hear your side of the conversation, let’s keep it going!
Until our next rendezvous…
