coffee inspired writing

*Disclaimer
this post is fueled by a grande Starbucks hazelnut latte,
 please keep that in mind as you read my peppy, neurotic, silly-happy, & semi manic post......


Morning kittens!!  as per yesterday's post, I want to make a slight correction, indeed last night was the Summer solstice, but today is actually the longest day of the year!  And so my friends, lets take our 15 hours of sunlight and enjoy it to the fullest!{even if it is hotter than the Sahara outside}  That is certainly what I plan to do today.....

But for now, I want to share with you a few reasons why my heart is just so darn happy this morning
{probably mostly because of  my morning brew, which is neither here nor there....}   


I consumed a delicious & much needed cup of coffee in record time this morning.  You see, our coffee maker bit the dust last week, and so I have gone five days, I repeat! five whole days without my morning brew.  Insanity is right.   So I got my cute little tush to my favorite store {target} this morning and bought myself a brand new coffee maker!....among other things...."I only bought one thing at Target"....no one ever said....
Oh coffee, I love you.  You bet I am brewing a pot right now, who cares that it is 104 degrees outside, or that it is 12 o'clock in the afternoon, and I'm the only one home.....who cares, is right.

Other things making me silly happy right now....

.....having a great conversation with my baby brother.  I mean what 17 year old boy will gladly talk to you on the phone for over 20 minutes.  And man, he is growing up.  Even though there are seven years between us, he is honestly one of my best friends.  He makes me so happy & so proud.   I really do love that kid....

.....having a tiny baby boy fall fast asleep in my arms, Oh sweet goodness......

.....real life vegetables growing in our back yard!!!! &&& eating them on our salad.....

.....beautiful flowers and blooms still popping up all over the place in the backyard, and in turn making beautiful arrangements for vases inside.....

.....blossoming friendships.....

.....having absolutely the cutest & snugly dog in the world and a pretty great husband to go alongside it....

.....reading wonderfully written books that leave you feeling inspired and hopeful
and most importantly 

.....a life that I thought would never really fall into place.....is finally starting to take shape.....

.....learning that big dreams are not impossible, and learning to not let our own thoughts of how our Future is "supposed" to look keep us from seeing the big picture.  The biggest truth is that dreams aren't impossible, and the only person to hold you back from them is yourself....



coffee inspired writing at its finest
Enjoy the longest day of the year!!
