If We Had Coffee // 4

If we had coffee, it would probably be on a Friday, since I don't have school. We would likely keep it simple and meet at a Starbucks somewhere between us. I'd definitely order an iced coffee with a splash of half & half and pumpkin spice syrup. I would tell you how it is a guilty pleasure of mine, but I really do love pumpkin spice and am always excited when it makes its arrival each year. I'd ask you what you ordered and would make a mental note to try that next time.

We would find a quiet spot to sit down, maybe even outside if the weather is nice. I'd ask you about your loved ones and work or school and where you got your shirt because I'm sure you look great. I'd ask you how your summer was and if you are looking forward to the fall. 

I'd tell you about my trip to Hawaii and how it just was so amazing that I can't get over it. I'd tell you that I can't wait to go back and how we are already scheming about how we can make that happen one day soon. I'd probably show you photos from our trip on my phone, and also throw in a few recent ones of Marly too since he is just so cute.

If we had coffee, I'd tell you about my classes this semester and how they are going pretty well so far. I'd tell you how crazy it is that this is my last year and the thought of graduating in the spring both delights and terrifies me. I'd tell you that I am quickly finding out how awful I am at dancing and that I still think it is pretty funny that I am actually taking a hip-hop class. We would definitely have a good laugh about this. I'd also say though that my Latin dance class is kind of fun and it is easier than hip-hop for me.

I'd tell you much I love coming home to my apartment each day and how it just feels so right. I'd tell you that it has been fun living with Laura and that I've enjoyed hanging out with her the most that I have since we were in high school. Sometimes I can't believe that we are actually here, living in an apartment together and learning how to be adults.

I'd tell you that I watched all of this season of Bachelor in Paradise and don't even know why I love all of the shows in The Bachelor franchise, but I do. I just can't help but love trash TV! Speaking of TV, I'd tell you how Dai and I just finished watching the Stranger Things and how much we loved it. I'd also have to tell you how excited I am for the new episodes of Gilmore Girls to be released and that my sister and I have already made plans to watch them together the day they are released.

I'd tell you how I am just itching to photograph some people! Kids, maternity, families, engagements, couples, graduates, events, weddings... Just give me someone to shoot with! I would really, really love to especially shoot a wedding in the near future. I shot one three years ago and looking back at the photos, they make me slightly cringe because I think I could do a much better job now.

If we had coffee, I'd tell you how I miss my family and how hard it is to live away from the ones I am closest to. I'd tell you how I miss my dad and sister especially, and sometimes I get sad. I'd tell you how I am very excited to spend Thanksgiving in San Diego though and can't wait to hang out with my nephews.

I'd tell you how I am so happy it is Friday and that I get to see Dai later today. I'd tell you that it is difficult sometimes only getting to see each other on the weekends, but we do our best to make the most of our time together. I'd tell you how we don't really have plans for this weekend and am alright with it since it means we can do whatever we would like.

Our cups would surely be empty by now and it would be time to say farewell until next time. We would hug and I would invite you over to my house to swim or have dinner because I really want you to see my new place. You would laugh and say "of course" and we would wave goodbye as we walked to our cars.

If we had coffee, what would you tell me?
