This is only a post before the real post. The real post will update you on my life. But this post will merely serve to tell you what is currently on my mind.

I miss having coffee. Even though I drink a cup of it just about every morning, I miss it. No, I'm not an addict. I simply miss having coffee with friends. At school, I can't remember how many countless coffee runs, coffee room dates, and coffee brewing sessions we all shared. Drinking coffee together is like sitting at the dinner table together; it offers a sense of community and familiarity and comfort. And at this moment, I miss it terribly. I'll wake up tomorrow and have my daily cup, but drinking it alone and without conversation takes half the enjoyment out of it for me, I can't lie.

The best coffee moment I've had this summer is when Gennean came to visit. We were alone at our friend's house, who lives in a beautiful town called Grass Valley. In the morning we went in her backyard, which is a wide-open meadow, and we sat there and drank our coffee while simultaneously engaging in wonderful conversation. Maybe it's the caffeine that causes us to get so chatty...but either way, I remember it so clearly, and I felt so refreshed and rejuvenated afterward. (Ps Gennean, I miss you.)

Beside my love coming home in, yes, dare I say, 11 days, (oh my gosh 11 days?!) I cannot WAIT to get back to coffee dates at Jessup.

(I hope mentioning that he comes home soon doesn't interrupt my whole 'post before the real post' thought process.)

p.s. Rachel, I pretty much can't wait to show you how I can drink a full cup of black coffee now. :)

Stationary is too much fun. My friend Alissa and I have been writing letters over summer and it has been so exciting to a) actually get something in the mail for once, and b), be able to write on cute notecards like these. Although my cards aren't half as creative as these ones...anyways! I especially liked the first one because today is my eight-months with my lovely boyfriend, and if I could write him, this is the card I would send. You can never get tired of seeing that precious word.

Mom and Dad are gone to enjoy an early anniversary/Fourth of July weekend in Capitola, so the house is all mine for a couple days. Today I had a nice swim in my backyard, and tomorrow I'm already looking forward to baking a delicious banana-creme pie. It has been tempting me all day!

I got lost on Ruche today, which is an online boutique that handpicks all of its items. The prices aren't too ridiculous either. I forget how much I love stumbling across random clothing stories like this, because it reminds me that there is so much out there in terms of finding clothing you like. Don't get me wrong, I love 'ol-faithful-Target (its cheap and can usually get the job done) but you can only do so much with their options. There is this idealized style in my head of how I would dress myself everyday if I had the time and resources (and by resources I mean cash, money, dough, credit, the likes) but then I usually end up at...Target, and I settle. Clothing is so much fun.

I'm happy God made me a girl for this sole-purpose. (Okay there are tons of other reasons too, but this is huge one).

Oh p.s.! I watched the movie Remember Me last night, and I have to say I had my doubts, considering all I've seen Rob Pattinson in is Twilight. But my goodness. That was an amazing, amazing movie. I'm not too sure why I liked it so much. I just did. Definitely recommend it.
