I don’t date Mr. Coppertop as often as I should, but this morning we were able to break away for a little bit and have a fun morning together. The mom’s group at my church does a childcare morning every few months, where you can drop your kiddos off, for a couple hours and do whatever your heart chooses.(How cool is that?!) So Mr. Coppertop took a little time off to meet up with me for a coffee date…
Mr. C is a coffee connoisseur. His taste is refined to appreciate all sorts of flavors while turning his nose to anything less than worthy. He drinks it hot and he drinks a lot. I on the other hand, am what he affectionally refers to as a coffee admirer. Literally. If it looks good and smells good, I’m in. 🙂
And today was no exception… We went to a quaint, coffee shop downtown and they made me the cutest little five-dollar latte. I may not be much on drinking coffee, but I thoroughly enjoyed this cup.
After our lovely, kidless, (minus the baby, who came along) coffee date where we had uninterrupted conversation, we went to a local mercantile to check out the latest and greatest herbs, essential oils, and cast-iron tea-pots. (Because people, I’m granola like that.)
The store is so rustic and natural, I didn’t have to buy anything to have a great time, just being in there fills me with inspiration.
Then to top it off, we caught the tale end of a men’s a cappella group delivering a singing valentine. (Barber shop quartet style.) Talk about being in the right place at the right time. I love me some good harmony! 🙂
And just like we do after any date, we concluded that we need to get away more often. I love keeping it simple and inexpensive, giving us the freedom to switch it up last minute or stop and enjoy a little music along the way.
I had a great morning with Mr. Coppertop and I’m already planning a few more five-dollar (or less) date ideas for later… 🙂
