Coffee Talk

My sweet friend Chelsea occasionally does ‘coffee talk’ posts, and I was inspired to do one myself today! While I love a good confessions post, or shopping guide, or baby update, sometimes I just have a million thoughts swirling around in my head that don’t fall into any give category. Rather, it is a compilation of thoughts and emotions that I would likely spill over to anyone listening on a good old coffee date. So read on, grab a cup of coffee yourself, and let’s talk.

I feel like lately, I just don’t have it all together. I try, really I do. I think maybe it is the weather. This is always the hardest stretch of the year, with no big holidays to look forward to, weather that keeps us Midwesterners locked inside, and the general end of winter ‘blahs’. I keep hoping a bit of inspiration and excitement comes my way soon.

I don’t think I have found my calling, career wise. I do not know what my ultimate goal is, and sometimes it can be a downer to feel like you just aren’t as motivated as you think you should be. Is motivation a magic pot of gold that I just might not find? Or maybe it’s just that darn end of winter blues hitting.
My boys are and continue to be my whole world. There are days where my fuse runs short, and they drive me up the wall, but those aren’t the stories I share about them, because those moments pale in comparison to the sweet, joyous moments they bring to my life.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that a sweet, ten month old baby is what you would find in the dictionary if you looked up the literal word ‘baby’. Sweet babbles and giggles, wrist rolls and finger dimples, and those cute little baby teeth spell literal baby perfection. It is one of those stages you wouldn’t mind bottling up and keeping with you forever.
I have been majorly working on cutting back what I spend lately. I haven’t put all things on hold, but I am being more mindful, trying to use rewards points/major sales whenever possible, and just thinking a bit more before clicking add to cart. Of course, the exception to the rule was getting this top this week. Over coffee, I would admit to you that I own this shirt in five different colors, and wear every single one a regular basis. I mean, if the shoe fits, right? I would tell you that you should buy it in every single color, and then we could be adorable tunic wearing twins.
I would tell you I am excited about things that have been happening with my blog and writing lately, but I am often hesitant to talk about it. I often worry what others will think, and feel as though a lot of people don’t understand why I do what I do. I love to write, I love to share my favorite finds, my inner thoughts, and memories of my little family. I really pour my heart and soul into this space, and tell myself that if I am able to touch even one person with my words, it is 100% worth it. But for whatever reason, to try to explain that to others is scary.
I would tell you that I drink way too much coffee, eat way too many desserts, and then would probably ask you to make plans next week that inevitably involve food.
What have you been thinking lately? I would love to coffee chat!

    I'm getting ready to change schools next year, so I feel you on the career front. Good job on spending less! That's a tough one but well worth it.

    I am so ready for some sunshine and warmth. Although we are no longer getting snow (as of 21 days ago) it has pretty much rained non-stop. It is just a blah time of year. Way to go on thinking about "adding to cart". I need to be better about this!

    You totally spoke to me on the blog comment. I often think "If one person is touched by what I write, then it's all worth it." I hope you have a wonderful day!

    I'm in the Midwest and I completely feel you on the weather front. Here's to hoping you have nicer weather this weekend! It's supposed to be warmer here but rainy.
