If We Were Having Coffee…

This is a very cute idea that Jamie at the Perpetual Page Turner borrowed from Ashley at Your Super Awesome Life. Essentially, it's what we would talk to you about if we were having coffee together. I think Jamie put it perfectly when she said that sometimes it seems like "we forget that there is a whole life behind the people that write and read blogs." I think she has a point. Sometimes it's easy to just read a post, maybe comment, and then move onto the next post. So let's have a chat, shall we?

If we were having coffee . . . I'd tell you how my favorite thing in this world is being a mother. I don't solely define myself by these this identity, but it is a huge and favorite part of my life. Watching Teacup Human grow and explore the world is the best part of my day. She brings so much joy and light to my life that it's hard to put in words.

If we were having coffee . . . I'd tell you how much I miss blogging but life has been so crazy lately. I really wanted to keep up after having Teacup Human, but raising babies is a lot of work! By the time TC is in bed, I'm ready to just crash on the couch. And the weekends are spent with my husband, our baby, and our dog. And when the baby is napping I'm getting the house cleaned, organized, or caught up on reading. Speaking of which.

If we were having coffee . . . I'd tell you that my reading-reading has suffered lately. If it weren't for audiobooks, I would have almost nothing read. And when I do read books? It takes me weeks to get through what used to take me days. Such is the ups and downs of life, but reading was my favorite past time and it bums me out that I can't read as much as I used to. Mindless TV has just taken over my free time.

If we were having coffee . . . I'd ask if you're watching The Good Place - and if you aren't I'd tell you that you should be! This is my current favorite show on TV and it never ceases to crack me up on a weekly basis.

If we were having coffee . . . I'd tell you that I am so excited to move next week! Joe and I are moving on up! We love our home but have come to realize that we have quickly outgrown it. I'm going to miss our current home like crazy - I did cry when it was officially sold - but I'm excited to make new memories and watch our children grow in our new house.

If we were having coffee . . . I'd tell you how much I am loving my job. I hate that it takes me away from Teacup Human, but absolutely love what I do.

If we were having coffee . . . I'd ask what's been new with you. How are things going? Good, bad, beautiful, ugly, happy, or depressing. Lay it on me, kids. Once you've finished having coffee with me, head on over and have coffee with Jamie or Ashley.
