Taylor Gibson (Miss Tay), author's daughter, sipping a smooth cup of coffee
Miss Taylor and I love us a good, coffee adventure. Bo-yeah, says Taylor. We have what we call A Coffee Date every morning. Sometimes we stay at home while watching the morning news, or while we write and paint in our home art-studio. Sometimes we go out for coffee. Taylor gets super excited because that's when the people-watching fun comes into play. Especially the kiddos. We love us some babies. Each evening, when Taylor hugs me good-night, she always hollers down "Coffee date?" on her way upstairs. "You got that right!" I usually say. Coffee-time. Cherished-time. Happy-time.
Today we ventured to a new, local shop. Shout out to Marty B's Coffee, martybscoffee.com, where we had a lovely time sipping and talking. Lots of people, smooth coffee, and some crave-worthy food items too. Shhhhh...don't tell my wellness-diet coach. Taylor grabbed us a booth while I poured cream into our coffee cups. Our conversation took many twists and turns. We laughed, googled, and took a few photos as we discussed this new blog adventure.
Have you ever been unapologetically drawn to someone? Not in a romantic sense. Not in a weird or rude way either. I mean organic admiration for another human? Maybe for reasons you can't quite put your finger on. They simply have a magnetic energy about them. Well, it happens to Taylor and I. And it always brings a smile to our faces. Today, I had that magnetic moment while sitting and watching my beautiful daughter. As she sat quietly sipping and savoring her coffee, I sat still for a moment, appreciating her uninhibited and beautiful spirit.
Be today. Be you. Be in the moment. Be aware. Happy adventures!
