Simple Pleasure Sunday: Time at My Favorite Coffee Shop

I love my favorite coffee shop! It's an independently-owned one that I've written about before here and here. Unfortunately, I rarely get there anymore due to my reduced means of transportation. On my day off on Friday, I did borrow my mom's and brother's vehicle and proceeded to drive two towns away to it. I think this is the second time that I've been there over the last few months. I went with Kate and her daughter in January but I do not believe that I made it there in December... Even though I no longer visit weekly but more so monthly instead, I'm still recognized and met with "How have you been?! Haven't seen you in awhile!" sort of talk by the incredible staff.

I may even savor my time there even more since it's a rare indulgence, rather than a habit anymore. In addition to the warm atmosphere, I thoroughly enjoy their large cappuccino served in a mug and chocolate croissant. The coffee is made well and the pastry simply doesn't last very long. I sit and read, putting down my book completely every so often to give my full attention to my delicious food and drink, for about 45 minutes. This time I was reading A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway. I also play around on my smartphone at times, pinning on Pinterest, scanning my news feed on facebook and reading my favorites on my blogroll. I adore this time with something Italian and something sweet. I feel satisfied that I found such a wonderful thing to do and place to do it for some "me" time. I feel happy leaving, and I don't think it's all that caffeine that truly impacts me! This experience is what this blog series is all about. Something little that I devote my attention to gives me so much joy.
