But, now the music, decorations, and gift wrapping can be distracting. Let's face it, most of us could use a distraction right about now.
I would love to hear how you all are celebrating the season. Leave me a note in the comments or e:mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yesterday Chris and I went to a coffee house that just opened in our neighborhood. We are Starbucks fans and have been for years, but their stores are not a place to just sit and relax with coffee.
|Eggnog lattes and a treat (for Chris).|
The new coffee shop is Brewed Awakenings, they are a local chain here in Vancouver. They recently opened this restaurant and we were pleased to have a more traditional coffee house nearby. It is large, plenty of seating, with music playing softly so we can still have a conversation over coffee.
|Not so cheery weather|
I took this photo of the snow flakes painted on the window, then realized that the gray, wet weather had taken center stage. I included it to show why we drink so much coffee in the northwest.
