Yes, I cheated yesterday and posted a personal post instead of the typical Coffee Talk Monday. šŸ˜‰ But I’m making up for it today!!! This is the week of personal posts. Yesterday was all about how Alex and I met and the rest of the week will entail two other special personal posts involving my sweet Ollie and my house! šŸ™‚ I am looking forward to sharing!!!! Stay tuned! For now, let’s catch up on this past week/weekend!

MOCHA MOMENTS
THE SWEETER MEMORIES FROM THIS PAST WEEK

1
SURPRISE!!!!

Even though we were just in Florida the week before, I wanted to surprise Alex a day earlier than expected on Valentine’s Day. šŸ™‚ So Ollie and I left at 5:15 am. and arrived late in the evening, but we managed to surprise him thanks to InstaStories!!!! šŸ˜‰ I tried “air-dropping” this song to him through the window, but that didn’t work. HA! I love surprising!!!

GRATEFUL FOR QUALITY TIME

Between our crazy schedules, I never know what quality time will look like with Alex. Fortunately for us, we were able to enjoy not just one but TWO days off!!!! It was a great mix of crossing off “to dos” and relaxation. <3

Alex is a great listener. From wedding planning, business, and everything in between, I’ve been over my head, stressed, and not really myself. Looking at the to-do list is overwhelming, but he reminds me that I’m only human and cannot do it all. I cherish the fact that he wants to work as a team and conquer life together. I cannot wait to do life with him forever. <3

RAINY DAYS.

I guess rainy days aren’t always a bad thing. Except it makes me want to move in slow motion and curl up in bed with my laptop. šŸ˜‰ Which I did the other day! Haha! Also, all of the snow in VA has me wanting to stay down here! I’m hoping for sunshine this weekend!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!!
