Coffee Date Dreamland with Cassie from Living on Cloud Nine

If you have been around here for any amount of time, you know my friend Cassie. I'm happy to have her today in place of my In the Word Link-Up post while I am on my honeymoon. I had to interject throughout, but don't mind me. This post literally brought me to the verge of tears; I am so grateful for this friendship we have created!


hello! I'm Cassie, but not the normal Cassie that writes around here, the other one. It's fun to have a friend with the same name even if it can be a bit confusing to others. So, I'm the other Cassie. I blog over at Living on Cloud Nine and that is exactly how I like to live my life, on a happy little cloud. Not every day is happy but I like to think that you can find happiness in every day. I am currently learning how to be the best wife possible to the best man I know and I've been thankful to call him my husband for almost a year now! I love the color purple, fall weather, splashing in rain puddles and worshiping our Father above.

Since today is the typical day for the In The Word posts around here and I already shared my post over in my space I thought I would try something a little different for Cassie's blog today. While she is out on the beach getting an amazing tan I thought I would have a pretend coffee date with her. I've seen the trend of coffee dates going around the blogging world a lot lately and I honestly love the idea. I love coffee, I love time with friends, and I really love talking to Cassie. All of our conversations are done on our phone... texting, emailing, instagram commenting; pretty much everything except for talking face to face. Yes, it is sad, but today that will change. Today we are having a coffee date!

In this coffee date dreamland, Cassie and I would live in the same city. We would pick a local coffee shop, not a chain that is overrated, something small and quiet with really good coffee. I would probably get there first since I have an annoying habit of always showing up early to everything. I would go ahead and order a hot cup of black coffee and find a little table in a corner. Cassie would show up a few minutes later and I'd greet her with an overexcited wave {I tend to get excited easily} and wait for her to get her coffee ordered.

Once we both have our hot cups cradled in our hands we would start the small talk; the normal, how are you and what have you been up to lately? After that is out of the way we would move on to the deeper things. I would tell her how thankful I am for this friendship. How I truly believe that the Lord has placed her in my life to bring depth and sweetness in a way that only a sister in Christ can.

I would share this bible verse with her and tell her that it makes me think of our friendship. How the conversations have evolved over the last year and how I believe they have sharpened our hearts for the Lord.

We would talk about our marriages to our bearded men. The good, the new and the everyday things. We would build each other up and support each other. We'd laugh about silly things that the guys we love do and share stories about how they love us well. The marriage talk would continue on how this role of being a wife has changed us in ways we didn't expect. The things we love, the things we struggle with and the things we don't quite understand yet.

Prayer requests would be shared with each other and we'd both know that prayers would be lifted up in the weeks ahead. We would talk about the things that the Lord is doing in our hearts, things what we see changing. We would pray for those things too.

Our coffee cups would be empty for a while now because the conversation has lasted past the sips of coffee but it doesn't feel that way. We would enjoy the relaxed feeling between friends and plan another coffee date soon. We'd give each other a hug and part ways but not too long would pass before one of us sends a text about something they forgot to mention. The conversation doesn't end at the coffee shop, it continues daily because it is important. It is good and just like iron sharpens iron, this friendships sharpens each other.
