{Virtual} Coffee Date

If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that I am enjoying TEA instead.
I know… it’ killing me. The Summer Detox is going well. I love a good ‘reset’ after having a crazy past three months. All the traveling (which I loved) had me eating things that I don’t normally have. I am glad I am doing it, but boy do I miss my coffee. When I get off the detox, I will be bringing coffee back, but only one cup a day instead of three like I have been drinking!

If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that my internal alarm clock is set for 5:30am.
Saturdays is the only morning I can sleep in, but I am wide awake before 6:00am. I actually love getting up early and enjoying a lazy morning. I do my best thinking in the morning. Are you a morning person?

If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that every muscle in my body hurts in a good way.
These two-a-day workouts for the GPP Fitness RX+ Week are amazing. It is has been so fun to get a great workout in the morning and then grab a friend (or my hubby) to head to the park or even the local football stadium. Last night was the best. For our date night, hubby and I went to our local community basketball courts and had a little one-on-one game (of course Matt beat me). We are going to miss these summer nights and I love that we are soaking them up everyday!

If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you how God has opened my eyes and my heart to our local community.
I feel now that I am home more, I get the chance to see my neighbors a lot more (most of them are retired or work from home). I realized that I have lived next to them for almost six years and I barely know their names. I want to be a neighbor that cares and gives. I don’t want to live in a bubble any more. I am taking my first step at getting to know them by making everyone homemade zucchini bread from our garden this weekend. Wish me luck as I go door-to-door and hopefully get a few smiles.

If we were having coffee this morning, I would tell you that we signed our very last document for our adoption and are now patiently waiting for a child to be placed in our home.
It’s like I peed on a stick and saw the plus sign! Our child can be anywhere from 0-2 years old so we are doing our best to be prepared. I am actually super excited about finishing up the last few touches to the nursery this weekend and showing you all.
