Birthday Sunday #WeekendCoffeeShare

Thank you for joining me for a coffee chat today. I link up with Natalie the Explorer with others who enjoy Weekend Coffee Share posts!

Thank you for chatting with me today. I have a whole pot of coffee with some add-ins today. Plus the ice water pitcher is full!

If we were having coffee I would tell you it was a big week for me. My official resignation went through and I turned in all my devices on Wednesday. It feels wonderful and more of a shift rather than a whole change of life.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I recommend this TedX Talk from Nick Gray. He started a company called Museum Hack and just published a book called, “The 2-Hour Cocktail Party.”

If we were having coffee I would tell you I am continuing my Oceans without End program. The poetry in the packets and Holly’s words are inspiring. I am blending these learnings with the ones from Amanda Gorman’s Masterclass.

Do you need a refill? Would you like some ice water?

If we were having coffee I would tell you Amanda Gorman’s Masterclass went live this week and I started watching immediately. I got to lesson 2 before I stopped and used a close reading technique she talked about on a flash piece and then wrote my own and then went back into free writes. She is inspiring.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I ate at Maggiano’s for my birthday dinner and I had Rigatoni Arrabbiata with Grilled Chicken, Spinach & Spicy Tomato Cream Sauce. It was amazing and went well with the Pinot Grigio! I am looking for a recipe to recreate it at home.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I have been letting go of lots of material items. It is freeing to me and I feel like I am shedding a skin that does not serve me anymore. Stuff is heavy and it takes up mental and physical space. I wish there was a quicker way to get rid of some of these items but I am trying to schedule it so it is not overwhelming for me. Yesterday I took 2 full car loads to the thrift shops and there will be more to take later in the week.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I had an amazing morning with sleeping in, coffee, and writing. How did your morning begin? I have to travel to a conference later today but it is not that far. It is also a place I know well.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I recommend the game, We’re Really Not Strangers. I found the game when I went to Barnes and Noble and my son and I played in the car and had the most amazing conversation. I will take it with me to the conference too!

If we were having coffee I would tell you Sarah Selecky wrote about writing a list this week. This is a warm up exercise that can be used over and over again.

I hope your Sunday is filled with beautiful words, good food, and sunshine (but not too much that it blinds you!).

Thank you for joining me for a coffee chat. I hope to see you next weekend!
