I now know how Bella feels in New Moon. My local Starbucks has left me and there's a gaping hole in my chest that aches in response. As I drove by today, the sign was being taken down and I had to wrap my arm around my middle to keep myself together. They can take down every trace that the Clinton Starbucks ever existed, but they can't take away my memories. I'll remember the Clinton Starbucks even if there are no outward signs that it ever existed. I will not claw at my Espresso maker or throw Espresso Roast in my resentment. I will keep my cool and drive 2 exits down I-75 to Mary Ann's Starbucks even though it's a booger to get in and out of due to the heavy traffic.
Ok, here's my card I'm taking to the Shoebox Swap this week. I just got this PTI set, Everyday Button Bits, and I love it already. I found an awesome old newspaper scan on Alma's blog. I refer to her as Awesome Alma because her work is awesome.
Gotta love that October Afternoon paper! Thanks for stopping by!
