if we were having coffee...

{found here}

If we were having coffee this morning,
I might not talk much.
I've been sick since Sunday,
and it's gone from headaches & nasty sinuses,
to congestion & no voice, to an awful cough.
Not much fun at all. :(

But I could tell you that I have a
sweet husband who doesn't mind taking care of me
& makes sure I take my medicine.

I could tell you about the quilting class I started this week.
About the pretty fabrics I chose for the top,
and how excited I am to work on this project.

I might tell you about how I don't have any friends here in this city.
{we moved an hour away from our families & friends
for a job after we got married in October}
I'm thankful for the friend I do have who lives closer,
but I would like to meet some ladies & make friends here.
I might also tell you about how shy I am,
and how I don't feel very comfortable meeting new people.
So we'll see how that goes.

I could tell you about my struggle with picking out clothes,
and not feeling comfortable in my outfits.
That I'm trying to work through The No Brainer Wardrobe
and apply the things I've learned so I can feel confident about my style.
I might ask you how you would describe your style,
what your favorite "go to" outfit is.

We could talk about our ideas for blogging,
projects we'd like to try,
the latest pins that have inspired us.

But mostly I'd probably tell you about how happy I am.
Life isn't perfect, but it's still pretty wonderful.

What would you want to share with
me if we had coffee together?
