Coffee Conversations

Hello! I’m currently sipping my hot coffee at my desk, with my Apple Farm candle burning, watching our neighborhood slowly light up for the day. I’d say it’s about time for Daylight Savings in these parts – it’s hard to get out of bed when it’s still so dark in our room! 
My husband and I have the absolute pleasure of spending some of our day at the Virginia DMV today. I finally got my name changed, so that means new driver’s licenses all around! I’m hoping to get out unscathed, although I will be bringing snacks, books, iPads, and likely a concealed bottle of wine (kidding about that one, of course). 
This is the first weekend in several weeks that we don’t have anything planned and I cannot wait! It will be so nice to not live on a schedule and be able to do whatever we want. It’s supposed to be pretty toasty here, but I’m hoping to get outside and do some hiking or go to another winery. 
Did you catch my “I buy things in multiples and here they are” saga on Instagram Stories yesterday? If not, you can still watch it. It occurred to me just how many things in my closet are one of multiples, so I’m thinking about doing a full-on blog post about them. It was inspired by the arrival of this cardigan and this dress, both of which I already owned in other colors. But, they’re just that good, that I needed them in another basic color, ya know?
My mom and I stumbled upon a Williams-Sonoma Marketplace at the outlet mall last weekend and OH MY GOSH. THAT STORE IS GOLD. Not exaggerating at all, we spent an entire hour and a half walking through and admiring every last thing on every shelf. The prices were so, so good with the additional discounts. I was able to get some good things for our kitchen and my mom picked up some great stuff for their new home! If you ever see one of those stores, GO IN. 
My precious, most-loved, most asked about mascara is on SALE today! Regularly $23, on sale for $10. Stock up. 
Have a great weekend!

    I love seeing your Instagram stories and I sometimes comment on them 🙂 I can't remember if you have one or two cats, but I love those posts 🙂 But it's also so nice to know that I'm not the only one who buys the same item in two or three colors!! If you know you'll wear something, I guess that's the best way to go!

    Hello everyone in this forum, I am Jane Robin from palm Harbor Florida 34682. USA and want to use this medium to express gratitude to UP START LOAN for fulfilling their promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never with success, and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Mary Williams to UP START LOAN whom also confirmed to me that she also obtained a loan from them. In an attempt to resolve my current situation, i got in contact with the company via email and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Mary, i was also granted a loan of $80,000.00; So my advise to everyone who or know someone who desires a loan, if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact UP START LOAN. Besides, he doesn’t know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on ( ) or Text/Call +1(574) 301-1639

    Are you suspecting your partner of cheating or having an extramarital affair?
    I'll advice you to get proof first before confronting him/her. As that could result in unnecessary confusion in your relationship or marriage. it's always advisable to consult a professional hacker to help you get concrete evidence by discreetly getting access to their phone or computer.

  7. I sincerely didn’t like the idea, but this is my way of saying thank you to the Quora user that recommended a hacker (ETHICALHACKERS009@GMAIL.COM)

    I hired him for a very private and difficult matter of helping me hack a my spouse’s phone and social networks and some other personal stuffs and he far exceeded my expectations. which Jeremie, helped me get the info(whatsapp, facebook, text messages, call logs etc) faster and cheaper than I had imagined. The first time we spoke, we had a very long phone consultation in he gave me all my options that he could think of to resolve my case, and he even recommended I try other options before hiring him, which shows that he is honest. I decided to hire him and I am glad I did. he is a fantastic investigator and a great person. If you need a professional, reliable and efficient hacker, then you should contact this guy ; ETHICALHACKERS009@GMAIL.COM
    Y ou can also call him or send him a text +16692252253 INSTAGRAM ETHICALHACKERS009
