Follow Me Around: Whidbey Coffee



 Hello,

I thought it would be fun to start a new little blog series where you follow me around my town and the locations I enjoy visiting. It's like an insight into my life and a way to stalk me without being creepy. Plus, it's also my excuse to just talk more about things I like and attempting to make it sound creative and artsy of me.

Today I'm taking you to a coffee place that just opened up in my town and I love it! The atmosphere there is really cool and has this aesthetic that makes you want to get a lot of work done and be super productive. I tried to capture a few photos, but it didn't entirely grasp what I'm trying to tell you. The lighting was bad and lots of people were staring at me like I was some basic white girl being weird and trying to take pictures of light bulbs. Which, I am, but that's beside the point.



My wonderful friend Elissa was able to join me and we spent the three hours talking, laughing, planning out blog posts, and drinking an unorthodox amount of coffee. You may recognize her from her blog, Letter's to Jayna. If you haven't checked her out already, go do so ,please! She is an amazing person and I love her to death.

We both have this habit of talking way too loud and over other people. Every single time we're out and about we tend to draw too much attention with our accidental shouting. Today was no exception, but it was so good to sit down and talk. End of the school year stresses have left us and summer adventures and lazy days are ahead. It's always easier to hangout and plan things with that assurance.



I love me some coffee, and my oh my was this good! I got my signature latte and enjoyed every sip. They also supply you with a free drip coffee station, so once you're finished with your drink, you are enticed to stay longer because complimentary refills! This place has its perks. Their food is also very good. I've bought a few bakery items in the past, and this particular day I got a salad. Although they were well made, it's a bit pricey for the amount you're getting.



Another really cool thing this place has going for it is its indoor/outdoor fire place. Inside, this fire place has couches and lounge chair surrounding it, perfect for hanging with a group of friends. But outside, they had a cover over it and a small couch. While we were inside talking, there was a guy sitting out here, situated with steaming coffee and a book. It looked wonderful and made me want to come back and do the same thing.


And there's a totally not posed picture of me planning blog posts and creating a to-do list. I hope you enjoyed this tiny bit of insight on my life and I'm excited to share some more with you. What local places do you enjoy going to? Leave me a comment below and let me know.

With love,

Elizabeth
