november days {45/52}

I took more than a few photos this week – landscapes, trees, barns … But looking back at them, I keep coming back to this day. A perfect Friday, spent exploring sideroads and country lanes.

With a stop at my favorite Starbucks :)

I’m enamored of this place, this little town. Quaint, picturesque … I sat on that grand wrap-around porch, sipping on my first peppermint mocha of the season and indulged in a little bit of people watching, soaking in the atmosphere and warming my hands on my coffee cup.

Perfect moments. I breathe deeply and soak them in.

    I would probably visit Starbucks much more often if mine looked like this. That porch practically screams for you to curl up with your coffee and hang out. I think they should pass out handmade quilts with your mocha to encourage the snuggling.

    I love that leaf standing upright in the pic with your shoes. What a perfect little pop of color that says fall’s not quite done yet.

      Quilts! What an awesome idea!
      Of course, I would never leave ;)

      The wind kept trying to blow that leaf away, and as I was taking the picture, I kept thinking “don’t blow away yet, don’t blow away yet”. LOL … it was still there when I left.

    what a perfect Starbucks! I love the one down the street from the Big Top, but perhaps because two of my children worked there one who worked there the day it opened. I have gotten to know the manager and employees through my girls and they are like family to me now but, alas, the decor is like most any other Starbucks. But this one is truly magical. Thank you for sharing. Now I want/need a latte

      You’d have to make a pit-stop in Canada :)
