First off, I am in serious need of coffee, so please just wait right here...I am going to run down to the waterfront, near the ferry landing and go grab some java...plus I heard it's free from 10am until 1pm with a food purchase because today is National Coffee Break Day or I Am Too Addicted To Coffee To Function Without It Day...anyway, just wait here. I will be back. Okay? Okay. (At this moment, I left to actually go get coffee...no, really I did.)
See, I told you I would be right back. I love living in Olde Towne, Portsmouth, VA. There are few places in the world where one can stroll in a historic district, steps away from their home, to go get fresh yummy cappuccino or latte. I can choose between three different coffee loving venues, too. Jealous? You should be.
There is one that happens to be my most favorite. I am going to feature it in a blog post tomorrow and no, it's not because I happen to adore the owners and in no way do they compensate me with free coffee, although my coffee today...in all it's wonderful deep roasted javaness with a hint of caramel...was completely free. I won't lie...I have some of the best friends in Olde Towne and even if they did not leave me free coffee waiting for me at coffee shops, I would still love them.
I know this post sounds hurried and I apologize. I am rushing because I am getting ready to go to the big RVA today. RVA for those that don't know, is Richmond, Virginia. It's not too far from Olde Towne. Just a big hop, skip, and a jump across the little pond.
(Darn it, I forgot to get a cookie.)
It's just a day trip with a good friend and I have been rather looking forward to spending time with this person. There will be great laughs, good food, divine wine, Short Pump Towne Center, and who knows what else. I am down for the task. I am ready for the day.
I hope you have a great day, as well.
This is Home Girl and Coffee makes everything better, but Free Designer Coffee makes everything heavenly. It's just another way I celebrate "me".
