CAPES [something empowering] Withholding information based on not wanting to hurt someone’s feelings usually ends up hurting their feelings in the long run. It’s better to be graciously and intentionally straightforward from the start.
COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] 24 days until the Pumpkin Maple is back at Cupcake Royale. It’s better than you could ever imagine, and definitely worth the countdown.
THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] My nephew recently learned the word “maybe”. While at the cabin on Whidbey, he saw a fish jump. The rest of the weekend, he hopefully asked anyone who would listen: “Maaaayyyybeeee…fish jump again?”. There’s a difference between saying a hopeful “maybe” and saying “maybe” to get out of an obligation. I’m glad Cooper has learned the prior rather than the latter.
