I won’t sugar-coat it: I am a Starbucks junkie. It is what it is. Being in a state that I am still not QUITE identifying as my “home,” even after living here for over a year, there have been NUMEROUS times I wished I was back in Washington, tucked away in a corner at a local Starbucks store, catching up with a friend or two. . . Pair this with the fact that I am having a really hard time lately, trying to decide which parts of my chaos I am okay with sharing, & you get this rushed, last-minute contribution to the Ultimate Coffee Date blog hop for May.

So, pull up a seat & settle in with your favorite beverage & lets catch up just a touch. . . (My go-to these days is a grande, triple shot, two-pump hazelnut, two-pump mocha with coconut milk & light whip; what’ll you have? ;))

This week’s thankfuls are pretty straight-forward. . .

 
I am so very thankful to have had my nine-year-old son down for a visit for a good ten days. (Thankful #1) He left super early on Tuesday morning. Those goodybyes are always so, so hard. . . But they are getting easier because it is becoming easier to realize that I will see him again soon. (Thankful #2) Plus, the handsome husband & I can go back to not worrying about how much (or how little) clothing we are wearing around the house! (Thankful #3) LOL. A nine-year-old boy just does not need to see certain things! 😉

I’ve been in somewhat of a foul mood lately. . . I wanted a post that would allow me to vent some of my frustrations in a semi-positive (although, perhaps, unorthodox?) way. SO, I present to you “WISHES,” my small “wish list” of sorts, fashioned from some of my frustrations of lately. Then, towards the end, is “INTENTIONS,” taking a moment to reflect back on the On Purpose series I temporarily abandoned during my recent month-long unscheduled hiatus from Calculated Chaos. . .
