Good Morning!


Welcome to The Coffee Shop, just for you early risers on Monday mornings.

That book in many’s eyes doth share the glory,
That in gold clasps locks in the golden story;
So shall you share all that he doth possess,
By having him, making yourself no less.

Romeo and Juliet
by Raphael Tuck, circa 1900


My husband and I are off celebrating Part 35 of our never-ending honeymoon.
