if we had a coffee date...


There are so many loved ones that I don't have the luxury of going on dates with regularly & even friends that are close by that schedules keep us from getting together often enough! So this is my way of staying positive & looking forward to future dates with friends! Also, LOVE having friends be a part of the blog, makes me miss them even more!  Enjoy :)
my date with bethany.
if we had a coffee date...
we probably wouldn't get coffee. we'd meet at the wisdom tea house & pick the room upstairs. i'd get the raspberry hot chocolate & choose the MOST vintage, granny teacup & saucer that they have. you'd get something different & i'd probably want to try it :) we would talk about life & how special we are to eachother! you'd tell me about your future plans & i'd feel more proud to know you with each word that you share. dance, project love, God, Chris & Jess would probably be topics of conversation. we'd laugh and maybe cry... and get together a plan for our next visit! pictures and hugs would finish up our date, and i would already be looking forward to the next time i'd see your face :)

Hilla, if we had a coffee date...We would go to a cute cafe or tea house downtown and sit outside after the longest hug ever. We would probably cry seeing each other because it has been too long. I would compliment your stylish outfit and beautiful self and we would get something that tastes like heaven in a cup. We would sit outside soakin' up the sun laughing and talking about life, love and God. We would bring up Jess Hover and how we need to see ourselves how she sees us :) We would probably talk about memories, the future and encourage each other. I would tell you how much you mean to me and how amazing i think you are :) we would definitely take cute pictures and maybe walk around downtown for a bit. We would have a hard time saying goodbye and probably text each other right after to say how much fun we had.
my date with jessica.
if we had a coffee date...
we'd DEFINITELY meet at TheBucks. probably the one at the BriargateShops... we'd hopefully get our table in the corner :) in the past we've talked a while so we'd have to set aside ATLEAST three hours. the time would FLY by. we'd talk about our husbands, our struggles, and our amazing God. you'd teach me more than ever & inspire me to grow. i hope i'd do the same for you, because I love you more than you know(i couldn't help but to throw in atleast one rhyme here :) we'd talk and talk until our drinks got cold, and i would hate when it was time to go... but i'd know that there was next time, you've got so many people to share your love with & i'd have a hot yoga class calling my name!
Hillary, if we had a coffee date...
Being that it is unlikely I will be able to actually take my sweet Hillary on a date this week, and that this whole thing is really just a dream my heart wishes would come true, I am going to take this dream to an entirely new level and add things that may not ever really happen... but I will describe what would certainly be the most lovely of dates.
Chris & Shaun would be out of town traveling- Chris would be scoring goals & Shaun would be kick-flipping down sets of stairs- & the only logical thing for Hill & I to do would be to go on a girly vacation “date” together. I would take her to some completely adorable coffee shops around the world- the point of our rendezvous would be to get away, have the best time, eat delicious food, & enjoy the different spots I have been to over the past 3 years. We would start by flying to Barcelona, Spain, which would be the best. We would laugh like crazy, make friends with strangers, fake different accents, embrace different cultures, & talk about how much we like our husbands. In Spain we would walk the gorgeous streets until we found this sweet little tea shop that I went to once (& thought of Hillary), the walls are adorned with different teas, and bookshelves are filled with amazing books... plus the decor is like something from a really sweet girly movie that someone like Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts, or Meg Ryan would definitely be filmed in. We would talk all about God & life & the different things we struggle with & how God is so great... and again how much we like our husbands. Then we would fly to Thailand so I could take her to Wawee Coffee, an amazing coffee shop that is completely classy & looks like it is in a log cabin jungle spa. There we would talk about YWAM & Project Love & our dreams & how much we love each other. We would laugh A LOT, because that is what we do together. Plus we would take lots of pictures because we would be in Thailand. From there we would go to India to this beautiful coffee shop in the Himalayan mountains, we would have real Indian chai & enjoy wearing winter clothes- because we both love that. Finally we would wrap things up in Colorado- first a Starbucks in Breckenridge that I adore, Hillary would too, plus by that time we would have picked up each other’s tendencies, so people would ask if we were sisters. We would love that. Then we would finish in Estes Park at the Starbucks by the little river... that one is just beautiful. Shaun & Chris would meet us there, & then we would have a double-date weekend in Estes.. because we both love it there too! In the end it would be the best week ever & we would just be hugging each other & praising Jesus for how good He is to give us so much time together.


What would YOU do on your perfect coffee date? When would it be? What would you talk about?! I'd love to hear YOUR version of your coffee date :)
