Welcome to the November edition of the Ultimate Coffee Date Link Up! Join us as we imagine we are getting together for coffee (or tea, or your favorite beverage), and share what’s going on in our lives. Since it’s no fun to have coffee alone, make sure you leave comments on other blogs in the link up, and don’t forget to visit my co-host Deborah at Confessions Of A Mother Runner.
We’d love for you to use our new badge in your coffee date posts–

With Thanksgiving just a few short weeks away, I am focusing on being thankful, and I have a lot of things to be thankful about.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am thankful that this election season is almost over! I have to be in Boston on Tuesday, so I voted early for the first time ever. (Virginia does not have general early voting, but an out-of-town business trip is an accepted reason for early absentee voting.)
Have you voted yet?
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am thankful that we are going to visit my daughter this weekend. I hope it’s nice enough to go hiking, but no matter what we end up doing it will be nice to be together.
Will you be travelling for Thanksgiving?
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am thankful that my son has been living with us since he graduated from college in May. I know we are supposed to want our kids to move out and live independently–and of course I want that to happen eventually!–but over the past few months we’ve grown so much closer as our relationship has transitioned into a new stage. It’s a temporary situation while he decides whether to keep working or go to grad school, so I’m also treasuring the time together because I know it won’t last. Plus, he likes to cook dinner. 🙂
Did you live at home after graduating from college?
If we were having coffee, I’d thank you for stopping by! If you missed my Friday Five 2.0 post, I’d ask if you already know these five things about me?
