I'm In Love

Completely, over the moon in love.

With a coffee house.

My DH has been out of town, and we've been house-bound because of the snow. As you can imagine, I've been going stir crazy locked in the house with my three Gremlins. So when my brother showed up today, out of the blue, and offered to watch my kids so I could escape for a few hours, there was no way I was saying no.

I took the laptop and went in search of someplace quiet to work. Starbucks was too busy (and I knew I'd run into too many friends there). The newly refurbished coffee house just down the block from Starbucks closed too early. Desperate for the quiet, I went off in search of someplace else, and, to my surprise, I found the most amazing little coffee house tucked away in the most unlikely place. This cafe is adorable - quiet, cozy, trendy and chic, sorta like Central Perk on Friends. They serve coffee in those great big mugs, and they have sugar free mochas! (beat that, Starbucks!). I sat in this big, plush purple chair right next to the fireplace and typed my little heart out. Wrote a whole chapter in two hours. I was completely inspired. No one asked me to make them a snack. No one tugged on my pants or whined in my ear. The coffee lady even left me alone to work! It was heaven. It also didn't hurt that there was no internet access so there was no temptation to log on to the web and waste time.

This is going to be my new favorite hangout. I can't wait to go back.

Where's your favorite place to escape and write (or read)?

Hey! Email me where this place is! I love Blue Pepper downtown. I also write well in unexpected rooms of the house, on planes/trains, and hotel rooms :)

No way my brother would ever volunteer to take my boys...lucky you!
That place sounds great! A perfect little escape.

Typing a chapter in two hours? I'm jealous.

The place sounds lovely. I have my office upstairs and no little ones to bother me, unless you count my cat. She jumps up on my lap and expects a full body massage, usually at the most inconvenient times.

I have a room that is just bookshelves full of books and one comfy chair. I close that door and can really work there, unless someone pounds on the door demanding I make them a snack (:)) or let them swim, or to tell me someone hit someone else. Sigh.

Oh sounds so nice!I could use that about now.

Sounds like a wonderful place! What a nice brother! I'm glad you got a chance to write.

I just sit here in my loft and write. The only interruption is my lap dog wanting in and out. I did turn my desk so I look out at the mountains now. I love It! And have become more productive since I don't hit my head on the darn slanted roof any more! LOL
