Coffee Dates Continue

The “Stay at Home” recommendation that many of us are under has really changed the way we live our lives. We’ve moved our offices into our homes, walk around the block instead of going to the gym, and don’t “go shopping” as something to do. Yet, we don’t have to leave all our traditions behind, we just have to modify them a bit. If you’ve been following our blog for the last few years you may remember that Amanda and I have a twice-weekly coffee date. We’ve been meeting for coffee twice a week after work for almost 15 years. We love this time to just sit and talk without the distractions of home or anything else. We love this time together, its where she edited my book, where we discuss our plans for the future, its where a stream of consciousness discussion reminds us how we love the way each other’s minds work.

The sitting and down staring at each other across a table is a no go for the moment. But, it does mean we’ve stopped this lovely habit. We still go out for coffee. We hit the drive-through and then park in the coffee shops parking lot. We have a lovely view that overlooks a busy intersection and have our coffee much like before. We still look forward to this time each week because we know if we are in this together we are happy it’s with each other.

The coffee date continues even if it is in the jeep parked in a parking lot.


About No Kids, Will Travel

In the eyes of their friends and family, Amanda and Zeke are a young jet setting couple without any real responsibility. In real life, the stress of work and raising a kitten push them to flee reality at every opportunity. The "lack of obligation" gives them the chance to explore the world.
