John and have started a little “tradition” to try to get a way for at least one night a month, just spend some time together hanging out, refocusing and of course hitting up some good coffee shops.
We went to Rock Hill, SC and found this adorable little coffee shop with the world’s best chai latte – Mamma’s Coffee House. I didn’t take a picture but if it was your first time there you got to sign the building with a permanent marker. I signed the floor – but the walls, floor and ceiling were covered with signatures. It was rad!
I was wishing it was a warm, sunny day because the outdoor seating was just so charming!
For breakfast we hit up a little local cafe - Lell’s Cafe. I was shocked and delighted when I stumbled across a breakfast burrito smothered in – wait for it – New Mexico green chile sauce!! I flipped out and asked my waitress and she said the owner was from Albuquerque. I lived there for nearly two years and am addicted to New Mexico green chiles. There is seriously nothing like it in the world. It was absolutely delicious!
We didn’t get to spend much time in charming downtown Rock Hill because nothing was really open yet, and it was freezing cold!
We ate Friday night dinner at a little local pizzeria – Luigi and Son’s Italian Restaurant – and for dessert I had the most amazing Cafe gelato – imported from Italy. It was smooth and creamy and chocolately and so yummy… and they let me keep the cute little glass cup!
We had a delightful little getaway.
Peace and love,
i don’t have a photo for day 42, and this makes me sad. so early into the project and i miss a day. i don’t have a good excuse. we were traveling but we stopped at a cute coffee shop where i could’ve snagged a picture. i didn’t realize i hadn’t taken one all day. not even an iPhone pic. this is sad. oh well.
these were my valentines gifts for my sisters and mom. can you guess whose is whose?
and this is what i found on the coffee table after john left for work yesterday. nothing like that to brighten my morning. =} did you guys get any cute or creative valentines treats from your love? tell me about them!
ps. tell someone just how much you love them. don’t lose this chance. don’t take them for granted. don’t lose a moment. love.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. 1 John 3:16a

It’s time to celebrate! To stop and remember why we celebrate Christmas. God – Jesus Christ, became one of us, so he could understand our feelings, pains, joys, so that he could understand the temptations we face and the joy of victories, the sadness, the happiness that we feel throughout our lives. Just for us. To be one of us, to live in us, to save us. That’s how much he loves us.
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. For those who lived in a land of deep shadows – light! sunburst of light! You repopulated the nation, you expanded its joy. Oh, they’re so glad in your presence! Festival joy! The joy of a great celebration, sharing rich gifts and warm greetings…
For a child has been born – for us! the gift of a son – for us!
