a penny for your thoughts
i have been in sort-of... a fog the past two days. not that this is a sad post, i have just been in a weird mood. possibly a huge case of the mondays? probably. after my last class of the day, i took a walk over to parisi cafe inside of union station. i figured i'd treat myself to a soy double shot latte since i was having a gloomy day and sleepy from being sick the whole week. parisi cafe makes their own sauces and syrups; i decided to try the cinnamon honey flavoring (i don't normally add syrups to my lattes, but it actually sounded perfect today!) which was amazing. i asked for half the normal amount and i felt that was exactly the measurement it should be for the 12oz.
the cafe was mostly empty, so i had a giant table to myself to gaze at the artwork displayed in the shop, sip on my steamed latte, and have peace and quiet to ponder. i absolutely enjoy going places by myself, some might find it strange, and just having time to relax and gather thoughts. in my journal, i wrote some things i am thankful for that i often do not realize i am taking for granted. i'll share a few:
-having a wonderful family that is helping me through school so i can pursue my passion to teach
-my health, my open state of mind, my morals & judgement
-being with a man who cares deeply and pushes me to always do the step above
my list was very lengthy and concluded in having a lovely loft that i feel so at home in. readers, what are you thankful for today?
