If We Were Having Coffee
I would ask you, “Do you know anyone in Florida?” If you do, I hope they are all right. We have family there and luckily there was minimal damage to the houses and everyone escaped harm. We monitored the storm all this week and was thankful our family escaped the worst of the storm.
I would tell you we went on a yellow backpack adventure this weekend! Saturday we went to the Feast of the Hunters Moon which was super fun. There were lots of artisans to watch. I was able to pick up some wax seals and a cool spoon. (I am currently obsessed with spoons). They shot the cannon. Chris got pulled into a conversation with a tin man and was accused of being a professor at the university. We bought homemade root beer in cool glass bottles he will reuse. The weather was perfect too! Then on Sunday we went to this amazing used bookstore on the Purdue campus. We had lattes in a delightful cafe and then walked around a bit looking at the buildings. It was the perfect romantic weekend!
Traveling is always a learning experience. These are robots that will deliver food to you! They wait to cross the street and move around people. I was fascinated.
This is my creme brulee latte which was super yummy.
The decor of the coffee shop was delightful!
This is just one of the aisles in the basement of the bookstore. Chris might have purchased several books for me.

I would tell you my Story Intensive group had our first call this past Wednesday and it was amazing! I am so honored to be their teacher. We did a writing exercise together around a Naomi Shihab Nye poem and the conversation was dynamic. Next meeting I think we are going to end on a little writing exercise to keep that energy up. I have to remember to consciously end a meeting rather than a “time’s up!” button click.
I would tell you I continue the #last100daysproject2022. I post a word and then a random sentence each day on Instagram. You can check them out here.
Do you need a refill? Would you like some ice water?
I would tell you
I would tell you my PUSH group is looking for new members! We meet on Mondays (usually) and always share wins, write together and then have a conversation related to writing. For more info you can check out the detailed info here.
I would tell you my writing has been fueled by life and readings and is going strong. More submissions are out and work on revision is happening. I also won an honorable mention in a contest!
I hope your Sunday and the week are filled with fall fun, pumpkins, deep love, and great coffee.
Thank you for joining me for a coffee chat. I hope to see you next weekend!
