Hanging with my mom and sister! We pretty much moved in and took over.

I moved to Lewis County during the summer of 1998. I remember my parent’s drove me past the “Lewis County Mall” and I cried. That was no mall. There was no food court or amazing shops. My life was changing and I thought for sure it was for the worst. I’ll be honest, Lewis County is a unique place. Just drive by Yard Birds and you’ll understand. For a long time I have waited for Lewis County to become “cool” and we are still far from it. But, this weekend we took a step forward! I used to have to drive into town to meet up with people at Starbucks. 20 minutes was the commute. This is the northwest and this is where people meet, so I  just did it because that was normal. I am happy to announce that a Starbucks has now opened up 10 minutes from my house and right at the exit of our church. This could be dangerous. Before Starbucks was just a stop on the way out of town or a place to have a mentor meeting. Now I might actually have to set a budget. Imagine when the red cups come in… I might live there with all the festiveness.  It has been brought up by many a person, “Why do you like Starbucks, Amy? You don’t drink coffee.” Good question. I like hot chocolate and passion tea lemonades and pastries (okay, I love pastries). I have learned to love Starbucks over the years and now I’m hooked. No going back. So anyway, this Starbucks so close to my house feels like a promise of things to come. Maybe a Target or a Chipotle. I would love a Costco, Olive Garden or Red Robin. I dream of civilization moving into my neck of the woods. Until then, I will sip on hot chocolate and patiently wait.
