Coffee Date

I don't know about you but I have an obsession with coffee shops. And the smell of coffee. I guess you could say coffee in general. Oh, and spending time with my husband. I'm obsessed with that too. If you asked me, I'd say that coffee shops are great to go to and unwind, study/work (if you don't get distracted easily!) or meet up with friends. I actually feel lucky that I married someone who enjoys coffee as much more then I do because we get to try different shops all the time. Even though we enjoy trying new places, we still have our favorite; Not Just Coffee.
Fast forward to Southern Weddings saying they would like to feature us for one of their series, Southern Newlywed: Date Night (you can read our feature here). Not only was this an honor, but I knew just the place to go and was as giddy as a school girl when Allison Kuhn agreed to join us and capture it all on camera! Aren't the above photos amazing? I mean, we met up at 8:30 AM and look at how well she worked with the lighting. Pure goodness if I must say so myself!

So what are some of your favorite dates to go on with your significant other? Do you have any date ideas that aren't real expensive? I'd love to hear your thoughts! Will and I like to have game nights, go on walks around our neighborhood, go to sporting events and watch movies at home. Nothing extravagant but just as fun! And for those who might be interested, I listed a few of my favorite orders from coffee shops in the Charlotte area below!
Not Just Coffee - Vanilla Sugar Latte
The Mayobird - Caramel Latte
Amelie's French Bakery- The hot chocolate with whipped cream is the bomb! Side-note: it's listed in french on the menu as "Chaud Chocolat"!

The Daily Press - Just a plain ole' Cappuccino

Smelly Cat Coffee - I've heard that the Iced Chai's are delicious

Caribou Coffee - Vanilla White Mocha

Starbucks - Caramel Apple Spice or the White Chocolate Mocha depending on my mood

Crispy Crepe - Cookie Butter Latte...just don't look at how many calories are in it!

Sunflour Bakery - The Hot Chocolate...and PS they now have two locations

Terrace Cafe - The Tiramisu or Brown Sugar Latte

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I will usually respond back to you via email (not here on the blog)...It's easier for me that way and hopefully it sparks a conversation for us! It makes me giddy that you're here and took the time to leave me a comment :)
