See that right there… in the picture above? That is the beginning of something beautiful. A venti non-fat vanilla latte (extra hot so I can savour it) and a piece of lemon poppy seed loaf (to make up for the fat I took out of my latte). My computer is on and I’m at a Starbucks BY MYSELF! For an hour (maybe a little bit longer).
It’s heaven in an hour. I don’t get enough of this. In fact I don’t usually get any of this.
One whole hour where no one is looking for me, no one needs me and no one – work, kids, laundry, dishes, etc… – is going to come between me and my coffee.
Or me and my thoughts.
Or me and my lemon loaf.
I don’t even know the last time this happened but I think one of my New Year’s resolutions should be to actually do this. At least once a month. Okay – at least once more before 2013 rolls around.
I hope you can all end 2011 with a little bit of heaven - whatever that may be for you.
Best. Christmas. Gift. Ever.
