Coffee Talk Mondays

May the Fourth be with you! I’m sure my brother is LOVING today ā€” He’s a Star Wars fan, after all. šŸ˜‰ But honestly, my favorite day this week is CINCO DE MAYO tomorrow!!! I love me some Mexican food, and cannot wait to celebrate the fun Holiday on our typical Taco Tuesday! How appropriate. šŸ™‚ But today is Coffee Talk Monday which means I have some updates since last week! šŸ™‚ I hope YOU had a great week/weekend and I hope this week is even better!

MOCHA MOMENTS
THE SWEETER MEMORIES FROM THIS PAST WEEK

BEEEEEAAACCCHHHH!

When our city announced that the beaches were going to reopen, I could hardly contain my excitement! We are stationed here until June 2021, and I want to take every opportunity to dive my toes into the emerald coast sand. We spent every day this past weekend soaking in the rays and pretty views … and acai bowls. šŸ™‚ YUM!

CARE PACKAGE

My sister surprised us with homemade goodies in the mail!!! Oh, boy, did it make our weekend! It was a very thoughtful surprise that we will enjoy for months to come … Because you better believe we had to put some away in the freezer so we don’t gain the “COVID-19 lbs.” HAHA!

VIRGINIA IS FOR LOVERS

My sweet friend, Michelle Lieb, put together this collage to share with our VA couples. <3 I love it! I’m grateful to have been a part of this encouraging message!

HANGING IN THERE!

The hard part of the COVID-19 is handling the rescheduling. So far, I’m managing to get through this season. But I’m praying that my couples are able to continue their current plans to marry this summer/fall season! I’m looking forward to picking up my camera again soon, and photographing their love story! <3

Happy Monday, everyone!!
