My Favorite Barista
Today is my 9 year wedding anniversary. (Happy Anniversary Christy!) Did you know:
we eloped after 2 weeks of engagement?
to Las Vegas?
gone from Bean Traders for less than 48 hours?
none of our staff or family knew we were even out of town till we got back?
There were hurdles for us to conquer like the fact she didn't realize I was alive. No surprise since I was barely 16 and she 21. I spent a lot of time pining for Christy at CoffeeWorks. She was beautiful and care free with thick flowing blond hair everywhere. She had an electric smile that lit up the whole room. She innocently and unknowingly seduced me with her tight barista skills and loose gauzy hippie shirts. When I first laid eyes on her we were in different worlds. She left CoffeeWorks when I was a junior in high school. I never thought I would see her again. She left in a VW bus to drive across America. The last words I told her were in 'another life' we would be going on that trip not her and her boyfriend. I told her it should be me driving that bus. She looked at me with amusement while her boyfriend looked confused.
