Virtual Coffee

Amy over at Lucky Number13 hosts Virtual Coffee,  I thought it would be a fun idea to join in.


After all, I do love coffee and love imagining that we are friends catching up over a cup of coffee.

Yum, just looking at that makes me want to go make another cup.
Yesterday at Sam's Club we got some Dunkin Donuts coffee, I have to admit, it's good.
yay coffee!

If we were sitting down for coffee I would tell you about Ainsley's ballet lesson yesterday.
She loved it.
I was able to peek in and see her, she was doing so well.

She was paying attention and doing what her teachers asked her to.
After class she told me that she wanted to be a ballet teacher when she grows up.
Did I tell you that I did ballet as a child?
I absolutely loved it and seeing Ainsley all dressed up brought back so many fun memories.

If we were meeting for coffee I would want to tell you about a wonderful encounter I had while Lee was in ballet class.
When we got there I noticed this darling baby girl.
She looked so familiar and I was trying to figure out why.
I had a sneaking suspicion that her parents write a blog about her and they live in our fair city but I wasn't 100% sure and I didn't want to look like a weirdo for asking if it was her.
But, a nudging to ask just wouldn't go away.
Finally I did and it was in fact Faith.
Faith is a precious little girl full of smiles.
She has spina bifida and will be having an MRI today during which that have to sedate and intubate her, would you join me in praying for her? 
It was such a neat experience to be able to chat with her mom, I look forward to seeing them next week!

If were meeting for coffee I would tell you have fine Adison is feeling.
She seems to think it was something she ate not agreeing with her stomach.
I have no idea other than to say that I am happy that she is feeling well.
This morning she has been building blocks with Abby.
It has been a nice, quiet morning at home.
This afternoon she has her first karate lesson, she's really excited.

I would also tell you how much I love huge flowers in little girls hair.

This flower is massive and I am so happy that Abby has enough hair to support it, ha!

 I would tell you how much I love blogging, not just for the memory making and cataloging that goes on but also for the community and fellowship.
I love that there are a bunch of amazing ladies that I have never met in real life but truly consider my friends.

I would also tell you that I need to skedaddle, I need to make lunch, Lee gets of the bus soon and baby B is napping.

What would you share with me?
Let's talk, xoxo


  1. I can't wait until Ashlynn can do ballet! How fun!
    What an incredible encounter the Lord set up for you!
    LOVE big flowers!
    I too love blogging for the relationships. Having just moved I don't feel so friendless.

    1. I can't wait for ballet next week :)
      Yes, I truly felt the Lord's hand in it, He is so good!
      The bigger the flower the better, so stinkin' cute!
      That would be so hard with moving, we're here for ya :)

  2. I love Amy's coffee link up!!One of my favorite series in addition to InstaFriday and Homemadelovely.

    I love big flowers in my girls hair but at this stage she pulls them out! I have a feeling with 2 big brothers I'm gonna have a tomboy on my hands.

    Happy Tuesday!

    1. I love reading her's and yours so I figured, why not? I love the idea of sitting down for coffee together :)

      My little one usually pulls them out too so I was surprised she kept it in all morning :) My oldest is a bit of a tomboy, it's fun!

      Happy Tuesday to you too!
