Happy Friday, friends! One of my favorite parts of writing any Friday post is hunting down an image that makes me smile and happy for the weekend. I think I found a good one this Friday:
Yep – that’s a happy Friday look for you right there! I never liked pugs until I started reading Tina’s blog, but the more I read the more I came to love her and Mal’s little pup Murphy! So quirky and cute. (And they are about to add a baby anytime soon to their fun little family – so happy for them!)
I love the “coffee date” posts and thought since it’s Friday and I start every day with coffee (black, after some hot water with lemon and apple cider vinegar), I thought a coffee chat would be great for a Friday.
If we were having coffee together, I’d ask you how it tastes since it’s fresh out of our new coffee pot. Mikey picked it up at Target (and went there without me – how dare he?!) 😉 and it works so much better than our 6 year old one. Here’s this baby in action (so you can picture being there in my kitchen with me):
I’d share about how this weather’s been rainy and gray but how I’ve been loving it… But also share about how pumped I am for summer! Late nights with bright skies (did you know it doesn’t get dark here in the summer until 11 pm?), bonfires, wine with friends, s’mores, trips in the back country under full starry skies… I’d ask what YOU are excited about for the upcoming summer!
Speaking of summer, it’s coming quick, and our Kayaking and Sailing Expeditions are fast approaching. I’d ask you if you knew of any young adult (18 – 39-ish) cancer survivors (and their supporters) who would want to come on a trip with us this summer. I’d ask you to spread the word and share since we still have 2 (maybe 3) spots left for the July kayaking trip in SE Oregon and a few for our September sailing trip in British Columbia.
I’d ask about your workouts this week – anything noteworthy to share? I’d let you know about my new love of sweating it out on the treadmill on a killer incline! Something like this below:
I would ask about what’s on your agenda this weekend. I’d share how I’m pumped to connect with my brother on FaceTime tomorrow (he’s living in the UK right now) and about our BBQ with friends Friday night to connect about about their upcoming wedding we’re MC-ing (so fun!). We’re climbing with good buddies Saturday if the weather holds up, enjoying some family time and looking forward to church Sunday. What are you guys up to?
I’d check my watch and freak out a little, realizing that I cut leaving to walk to work a little close as usual (which happens without fail every.single.Friday!) and ask if we could do this again soon. A few last sips of coffee and I’d be off!
I hope you enjoyed your coffee and that you’re looking forward to your weekend! Live well & be well friends,
