A Single Cup of Coffee
Many things can happen over a single cup of coffee. Business deals may be won or lost, new friendships forged, and old friends reconnecting. Today marks the two year anniversary that my life forever changed over a single cup of coffee.
We had made arrangements to meet at a local coffee shop in Austin. We had already exchanged several emails and phone calls so the next logical step was to finally meet face-to-face. We agreed to meet for coffee on a Sunday morning. Amy had a preset schedule so I knew we only had an hour. In my mind, I thought she was only telling me she had things to do in case she lost interest in our conversation. Nonetheless, I was excited to finally have the chance to have our "date", if even for only an hour. Actually, excited would be an understatement. I was giddy!
I will spare our readers the details of our conversation because that is not really what this post is about. This post is about what can happen over a cup of coffee. We managed to turn a single cup of coffee into a 5 hour coffee date. Yes, you read that correctly, 5 hours of engaging conversation. Neither of us looking at our watches, playing with our iPhones or whatever other distractions came our way. We never even bothered to refill our cups. My life changed over that cup of coffee, I found Amy and Amy found me. Think about the possibilities the next time someone asks you if you want to meet for coffee, it could lead you to your happily ever after.
Happy "Coffee Date" Anniversary and I am so thankful that you did not run away :)
