Come Join the Conversation The
first time Beverly and I had coffee, I knew we'd be friends. She wrapped
both hands around her mug then she look
me straight in the eyes and asked, "So what's been going on in your life?"
Introducing Coffee and Convo
thought to myself, now here is a woman after my own heart. She savors her
morning coffee. It is ritual. It is therapy. It's sharing what
I like to call "a cuppa coffee and convo."
when Beverly moved from the neighborhood to over 1,200 miles away in Minneapolis,
we would have our weekly "cuppa and convo" - just on the phone instead of in
each others' kitchens. Now she's in Miami, but the ritual is the same.
are the conversations when we really get down to what's going on with family,
with our common friends, and with what's on our minds. We deliberately push
business aside, knowing that this is the time to focus on our friendship and
our lives -- with our beloved coffee and with each other.
today, the Kitchen Scoop site introduces a new blog topic called "Coffee and Convo
with Alicia." A lot has happened in my life of late, and I have bunches on my
mind. I'm hoping to start a virtual conversation on our Web site and give you,
our readers, a chance to join in the dialogue through the comments section
under each blog post. So grab your favorite mug and join
me. Beverly already has her coffee poured and she's ready to go. Let me know
what you think of this idea and what you'd like to talk about.
