Friday Coffee Talk is a series of posts that allows me to share the ins and outs of general happenings. It gives my brain a break from recipes and allows me to just write. Pour yourself a cup of coffee and join me.
It has been a while since I sat down and wrote a Friday Coffee Talk post. I’ve missed it- and you. I hope you had an enjoyable summer and did some fun things. Me? Well, I most definitely burned the candle at both ends and squeezed as much out of each day as I possibly could. Where do I even begin?
Way Out West Coffee is Good
Back in May we took an epic family vacation. We started in Arizona, rented a car and drove ourselves through 7 National Parks until we reached San Francisco. We hiked Nevada Falls in Yosemite – where I came this close to watching my phone get swept over the falls. Yep- the spray from the waterfall was so intense along the Mist Trail that my phone slipped right out of my hands and for some reason, a rock stopped it from plunging over the edge.
We traveled through the dessert, ate at out of the way places and were awestruck by the beauty before us. By the time we reached San Fran, we were eager to see the Golden Gate Bridge. Even the tourist stop coffee was good!
So much more to share about our trip, but not enough time to edit the photos! I will get to it sometime soon.
I also started a new business which has consumed most of my time. We even got featured in the local paper this past week which was pretty exciting! It’s called Roost Crate and it highlights my love of perusing the local farmers markets and sharing my favorite items through a monthly subscription service. It’s been pretty fun so far- hard work- but fun.
I’m so happy Fall has arrived. It means I will be back in the kitchen ready to cook & bake to update some recipes.
There is my brain dump for today. I would love to hear what you’ve been up to! Tell me, what’s new in your neck of the woods?
