Cold Weather Coffee Date

Happy Monday, Everyone. It’s a snowy, cold Monday here in Germany and I’m drinking a cappuccino on the couch, snuggling with Copley. It’s a nice way to start the week and the perfect time to share a virtual coffee date!


If we were sitting together drinking coffee, I would ask you if you have any trips planned for 2017. I’m in the process of planning our trips this year and it’s getting a little overwhelming, yet exciting. We are going to Dublin in February and Vienna in April but that’s all we have officially planned. Do you have any recommendations for either of those places? We’re also thinking of going to the Champagne district, Spain, Tuscany and Switzerland again.

I’d tell you about how I’m feeling a little lost this week. Last night I watched The Intern and Robert de Niro said that after he retired and his wife passed away he felt lost. He said he’s a happy person but that there’s a hole in his life that needs filled. That is exactly how I’ve been feeling lately. I am happy, don’t get me wrong. I love my life and feel so blessed to have the opportunity to live here and travel around, but I feel like I don’t have direction. For the first time in my life I don’t know what I want to do with my life work-wise, I don’t feel a strong connection to my community and like I have a strong group of girlfriends.

We’d talk about any movies you’ve seen recently. I really want to see La La Land but it doesn’t come out in Germany until January 26th. This weekend, Vinn and I watched Sully and Secret Life of Pets. Both were really good. Sully was emotional so switching to an animated movie was exactly what we needed.

I’d probably ask you to go shopping after our coffee so I could get some more candles for our apartment.

We’d discuss our fitness routines. I’ve been working out every day this week, yesterday running a 5k, and I’m feeling great. I’d tell you how I need to eat better so my  exercise makes a bigger impact. What do you do for fitness?

I’d share how frustrated I am that my pictures on the blog from January 2016 – May 2016 seem to have disappeared. I’ve been spending hours reuploading the pictures!! It’s frustrating but actually kind of fun to look back on that time. Our apartment sure looked different!

It’s only Monday, but I’d ask what your plans are for the weekend. I have zero and will probably spend the weekend taking some walks and watching Housewives. 

After several hours, we’d say our goodbyes and I’d tell you have to have a great week!!

What would  you want to talk about during our coffee date?
