Coffee Picnicking

April 10, 2014

sunflower photo 3 Old Salem rainy day a Coffee Picnic Blue BikeStephen and I love our Chemex so much.  We take it with us on road trips and lately we’ve filled our thermos up with divine Chemex coffee and picnicked. We’ve become coffee snobs fairly quickly.

Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate the newspaper? Fact: news stations stress me out. There’s something special about getting the tips of your fingers black from reading the newspaper. Stephen recently subscribed to the New York Times and I’m really enjoying it!

Coffee drinking and newspaper reading  —a little bit of these things mixed in with a whole lot of busy-bee-ness; the good kind of busy though. To top it off we’ve rolled our bar cart to the roof a few times and made new friends.

The only thing I’m lacking is time to make every item on my list happen. Here I’m speaking of spring cleaning. I have gave away furniture, threw away junk and oh my does it ever feel awesome. There’s more —so much more to do though.  So here’s to spring, and a hopeful heart of completing all my things to do.

How do you spring clean? What’s on your to do list?

    That sunflower pic is amazing! Amelia and I will be moving sometime in the next two months and I think I’m going to do another big spring clean beforehand. I don’t want to feel cluttered at the new place, or move unneeded items. On my spring to-do list I want to take Amelia to the zoo for the first time, though she may not “get it” yet it’ll be really fun. I’m also excited to finally be able to decorate a nursery for her, I’ll have to send you pics when I’m all done! :)

      Um, yes! I would love to see pictures!! The zoo is so much fun. Stephen took me last year for our anniversary and I loved it! —I’m moving apartments too! It’s just down the hall, but I’m still excited! I’m happy for you and your soon to be new place!
