Sunday Coffee Date

Hello and welcome to another Sunday Coffee Date post! This is one of my favorite types of posts–it’s just a fun casual time to chat as though we were meeting up for a cup of coffee. So, let’s do just that 😊

If we were having coffee right now… I would ask how you’re doing and what you’ve been up to this month. I haven’t been blogging as much as I would like to lately but I’m hoping to be more present in the upcoming weeks. I had two people complain about USPS shipping delays with my Etsy shop so I decided to just offer my bread locally. It’s the most popular item in my shop, but I don’t want people to have a bad experience with it arriving late, you know? It’s a lot of pressure off of my shoulders to just be shipping the granola and other items!

If we were having coffee right now… I would tell you that I finished about 90% of my holiday shopping and most of the items I purchased for family and friends are from small businesses! Speaking of small businesses, my friend Laura just launched the cutest kids gratitude journal in her shop!

Matching, Crafting, and Everything Else

I’ve been at it again with wearing matching clothes with Sadie. I hope she’s not embarrassed by me when she’s a teenager and sees 500 pictures of us in matching dresses/shirts/outfits 😂

Random question: when do you start holiday shopping? I really like the idea of being done with buying Christmas gifts before December even starts, but I’ve never actually done that. I know it would be nice and would help me enjoy the season much more!

I keep hearing people talk about how the supply chain is slow this year and that if you want to order something online, it’s better to do it sooner than later. Have you heard that at all? So crazy.
