It's been a few days since I have been able to sit down and actually write a blog post. This week was crazy busy with work, make up school days, trainings, grad. school. You name it, I had to do it. However there was one thing that stayed consistent this week and didn't change at all! I had to have my coffee for breakfast (with a healthy banana on the side). There is a Caribou coffee on my way to work and this week, I needed it every morning. I have gotten to know the friendly workers who help me every morning to wake up and feel alive! They are some of the kindest people I have met and they love working their job. I walk in and they don't even have to ask me what I want. It is simple...Vanilla Chocolate Mocha, a medium of course. That's part of consistency for me. Thank you to the workers of Caribou for always getting my order right and making sure that I start my morning off with a bang.
Now to part two of consistency this week. Every morning while I am waiting for the fabulous Barista (sp?) to make my coffee I find myself looking at their greeting cards. The cards don't change from day to day, only for each season. But for some reason I can reread the same cards every morning and they still make me happy. They carry the Papyrus brand of cards and they are each so unique and always put a smile on my face. Here are a few of my favorites...
These are just a couple examples of some of their Valentine's cards but, they have birthday, wedding, moving, thank you's...etc. I think even if I didn't get coffee every morning I could still walk in and read the rack of cards that are for sale. It has become one of my morning rituals. As I wait for a nice hot coffee, I turn my hectic morning upside down and take five minutes or less to read someone else's fabulous work. I love it.
My mom and aunt used to make their own greeting cards and I always found that to be so cute and artsy. Then I saw that one of my friends from Texas has her own etsy shop for greeting cards that are adorable. I don't think I have that artistic gift so, for now...I'll keep reading my Papyrus cards and drinking my coffee!
