Favorite Pastime


These Are a Few of My Favorite Things challenge blog has a new challenge for you: What do you like to do to pass the time?

Do you visit coffee shops, watch movies, play a sport? Scrap? (LOL—like I have to ask that one?!)

My page is about stopping for a coffee break. I really, really enjoy coffee shops. I love to sit in those big over-stuffed chairs, read and sip a latte. Now that I have Nate, the dynamic for that kind of relaxation has changed.

When he's in a good mood, I do like to take him to Starbucks or Panera and we enjoy a light snack and beverage together. It's during these times that I get some great conversation from him. And that is the best part.

I really hope that as he gets older we take advantage of this more. It will be great to have that kind of one-on-one relationship with Nate. I hope that setting this trend now may start a habit that he will enjoy with me.

For my page, I used Sketch 110 from The Scrappiest and mostly the digital kits from Echo Park that can be found on Jessica Sprague's site. I invested in quite a few of them, so don't be surprised if you see a few more digis popping up here. I like to keep you all on your toes. You never know what you'll get from me! :)

I hope to see you all playing along with us at TAAFOMFT. You have two weeks to play along. You can link up your post in the comments section, and we give one lucky player a cool prize. Easy as pie! Join in the fun!!

Cute layout! I love coffee shops too and so do my grown kids. We live about 2 hours from them so when we get together in Houston it is our habit to go sit and drink coffee and just chat or people watch. I know for sure I could not have done that when they were young...your boy is a good boy!

That sounds like such a fun mom and son outing! I'm sure Nate loves it. Great cheery yellow on your page.

Such a fun & colorful layout. I love it & I also love the story behind it. I adore coffee shops as well. I should start a coffee date with my daughter (well not coffee for her) so I can at least enjoy them again!
