Simple Joys: (first impressions of Blok & Co.)

Coming home from traveling always seems to nurture a sense of let down and even more wanderlust for me. But I’m reminded, what about the every day adventures? This is a way of thinking I’ve been trying to embrace more and more in my recent days. Every situation can become an adventure when we make a point to try something new, be more present, and take part in simple joys. 

My simple joys are: 

– a slow and quiet morning

– enjoying a hot cup of good coffee

– going for a walk

– trying a new restaurant

– reading a book 

– wearing my favorite clothes (which is everyday thanks to a pared down wardrobe!)

So with this mindset in action Lucy and I stopped by Blok & Co, a new coffee shop, on our morning errands run yesterday. Not only was the coffee seriously good, the interior was gorgeous and so inspiring for my design soul. The style was earthy and minimal, which I’m always a fan of. Even Lucy had an enriching time, as two little girls at a nearby table came over to play.   One of the sweet girls pointed out that Lucy and I had “matching shoes” on- guilty! 

The simple joy of a good cup of coffee in a beautiful setting was the perfect reminder for me to enjoy the little everyday moments.
