I tend to get trapped in my every day routine of going to work, coming home, and repeating EVERY day. Yesterday I decided to take a trip to this little coffee shop & bakery in my town. I’ve been here a couple times since it has been open. I absolutely love looking around at all the bread, desserts and coffees. They have a little section where they sell things from local companies which is awesome.
Lavender, pumpkin & lemon macaroons.
Don’t these macaroons looks delicious!
Perfect little spot on cold days for people watching!
If you ever find yourself in central NC. You NEED to take a stop at The Table!
Well hello there! I know I haven’t wrote anything in almost two months. For anyone who has been wondering where I’ve been, well I’ve been working, trying to figure out who I am and what I want to do with my life. I’m almost 25 years old. Five years ago, I thought I’d be in college and working my way to a bachelors degree in business. I thought that once I got out I’d be on my own, living my own life. I thought I’d be doing what I wanted to do and living on my own. Clearly, that has not happened at all. I’m working at a job I NEVER imagined I’d be doing and incredibly unhappy with my life. I’ve accomplished absolutely nothing that I wanted to do.
I see all the people that I went to school with graduating college, starting a career, traveling around the country and to other countries. I see them starting families and buying their first home. I have not managed to even do one of those things. Last year would have been the year that I graduated from college.
I was only able to complete one year of college at Campbell University here in North Carolina. I was forced to drop out after my first year due to lack of money. Financial aid barely covered one third of the cost of the year. After I wasn’t able to go back to Campbell I’ve tried 3 different times to get into UNCG, and a local community college. All of which have failed. Every time I’ve tried to go back something has gone wrong, something stopped me from going back to school and working towards the goals I’ve set up in my head since I was a little girl. I’ve always dreamed of going to college and starting my career.
I was so excited to FINALLY get a chance to visit this place. The Table is a bakery, market, as well as a restaurant. I’ve visited it 3 times now since it has open. I live in a smallish town in the middle of North Carolina (where the North Carolina zoo is) so when anything new opens it is ALWAYS exciting! So one day after work I decided to visit.
So in April I took a much needed beach trip to Wrightsville beach. For any of you that don’t know where Wrightsville beach is, it is about 15 minutes east of Wilmington, NC. Wrightsville beach is a little “town” filled with BIG beautiful beach houses…it does have a couple hotels on the beach though.
