“My best memories are getting coffee with you” - @m_malanga ☕️
Every weekend my wife and I enjoy getting coffee from our favorite spots. We use this time to talk and be present. No phones and no distractions while we enjoy each other. ☕️
I wouldn’t trade this time for anything in the world.
How do you spend your recovery days? Comment below and let me know. 😊
In high school, I was introduced to a free spirited single mom and her bibliophile teenaged daughter. Lorelai and Rory Gilmore appealed to me in a visceral way. At the time, I could relate to a girl who didn’t want to participate in school activities and would absolutely prefer to read an enormous stack books. When Rory and I went to University, I could completely get on board with having a tree to read under, and wanting to go home to see my mom on the weekend. (We admittedly diverged around the whole yacht stealing thing...) As a mom, I relate to the whole free spirit parenting approach that Lorelai adhered to. I can relate to running late out the door in my version of cowboy boots and cutoffs under a presentable jacket, to feeling like I don’t know what I am doing but my god I love my kids and I just want to do my best for them. I can relate to her entrepreneurial aspirations of the Dragonfly Inn, of just wanting the best life for my family. (Admittedly, we diverge in her disdain for her mother...)
But most of all? I can relate to ALL. The. Coffee. ........
😲 Coffee drinkers have stronger DNA!!! A study published in the European Journal of Nutrition showed that coffee drinkers have DNA with stronger integrity since the white blood cells of coffee drinkers had far less instance of spontaneous DNA strand breakage
