My Week In A Nutshell {Coffee Date}

I love how the beginning of the year feels. That is how I would start our conversation if we were having coffee right now. I'd be in my comfy sweats and ASU hooded sweatshirt {& I hope you would be in something just as comfortable or at least understand!}. We may take a minute to reflect on 2012. The ups & downs, but mostly acknowledge it has come to pass and move towards what 2013 may bring. 

Then we would talk about 2013. I'd tell you my word of the year {Renewed} and my plans of working towards opening a non-profit organization. We could possibly discuss names or how it could work. I'd also tell you that it is the biggest undertaking I have ever been a part of and I am scared of failing. But when I stop to think about it, my excitement of succeeding is greater then my fear. My faith in God is greater and his strength will get me through. 



{I love my 'It's a Small World' mug... It just makes me smile..}

I may tell you a funny story about my adorable nephews, who I got to hang out with today! My Little J walked up to me and said 'Auntie... You're beautiful' and promptly walked away. Or how my Little Z was a snuggle bug and just wanted to curl up under a blanket. They melt my heart! 

Do you have goals for 2013? I would love to know what they are! I'd share my goals, because I have a few to accomplish. I may ask you for prayer for guidance in all of these adventures, because I will need it! 




{Don't you love the vintage fabric I found? It is so girly & dainty!}

At some point we would move on to just talking about the day to day normal stuff... Like going back to work on Monday or what books we are reading. I'd tell you that my Valentine's wreath didn't come out like I wanted it to, so I have to figure out a plan B. 

Or that I wanted to cry when a specific song came on Pandora. Why did I want to cry? Because it breaks my heart every time I hear it. It makes me want to make the world a better place for everyone. It makes me want to stand firm in that God has me in his grip every second of every day!

We would talk about what you are up to, because I want to know. I have so much to share, but I mostly want to hear about you.

Eventually, after our coffee gets cold and we both need to get back to our to do list, we would say goodbye until next week. I hope to see you then!
