Welcome to the Wednesday Breakfast Dates series! Maybe…
Okay, it’s totally going to be a new series, but don’t expect it every single Wednesday, because as much as I’d love for everything to be planned out and written in stone (could I possibly be any more Type A?), that’s just not how life works.
I think it was two days into our honeymoon, when Joey and I still hadn’t adjusted to the time change and were doing this thing where we routinely woke up at 4 AM and were wide awake so we did things like eat Spanish chocolate in bed, that I decided that “Wednesday Breakfast Dates” were going to be a thing when we got back home and back to “real life.” You know, as a mid-week treat to ourselves and a consolation prize for having to go back to work and not eat chocolate in bed at 4 AM. Also, please tell me what kind of person is two days into their two-and-a-half-week-long honeymoon and already planning things for when they get home? Send help.
So now that the holidays are over and life feels pretty calm, we’re back to our mid-week treat. This week we hit up Black Eye Coffee for an almond milk latte, bottomless coffee, stone fruit oatmeal in a mason jar and a breakfast sandwich made in house (as all of their pastries and plated meals are). I love the vibe of that place in the early morning. And even though I unscrewed the lid of my oatmeal and it landed perfectly in my latte (we’re talking fully submerged) and their wobbly tables led to some spillage later on, it was the perfect start to a snowy Colorado morning.
