A Coffee with Kate

Processed with VSCO with t1 preset

When thinking about the simple pleasures in life, often the first thing that comes to mind for me at least, is a cup of coffee.

I feel like at this point there are few memories of mine that don’t include coffee in one way or another.

Coffee brings to mind game nights from my college years spent with good friends, trips to the mountains, a friend’s engagement, and happiness.


More generally though, coffee is:

The start to a day. 

The energy boost to carry you through a long night of studying.

A meeting with old friends.

A way to get to know some one new.

An opportunity to try something new.

Comfort and routine.

Warmth on a cold winter’s day.

Coolness on a summer day.


Perhaps the magic in coffee for me isn’t the sheer fact that it contains caffeine, but rather that it can become whatever it needs to be given the situation. Maybe I’ve had too much coffee at this point, but  it seems to me that I could stand to be a little more like coffee. See, there’s beauty in the ability to change and adapt.

I hope you’ll follow along with me as we take coffee breaks together, share ideas, and embrace the change that comes our way in this season of life.
