Saturday Starbucks

This morning, a very pleasant time was spent with my dad. We visited the Literary & Philosophical Society (the 'Lit & Phil'), an old library in Newcastle upon Tyne, which I believe to be an absolute hidden gem if, like me you adore old books. I roped him into some picture taking, which you'll see in a few days and afterwards we went over to Starbucks. We ate a strawberry cupcake (me) and an apple doughnut (him) and drank cappuccinos, listening to the pitter-patter of the rain outside, cosy and content in each others' company.

  3. THAT sounds amazing. I love spending time with my dad as it's actually not something we do often even though we actually work together.

  4. What you describe is a true poem on the magic of little things. And the joy of feeling every moment.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  18. Too bad we don't have Starbucks here in Belgium! Every time I'm at a Starbucks (on business or travel in any country but my own) I get my coffee there. It just feels a little more special then that cup a coffee you pour yourself in the morning...! I'm glad I'm not the only one taking pictures of it :)

  21. Simple decadence......just what you need to make life's little moments special.

    Honestly I have never thought a simple strawberry cupcake from Starbucks can look so delectable.

    Look forward to hearing from you

  31. My favorite Starbucks coffee is a white chocolate mocha with a shot of hazelnut. The world is a better place after I have this.
