Cuppies & Joe was our chosen coffee spot to meet after work. Our friendship was born in the front office of an elementary school and grew thanks to caffeine, terrible coworkers, a resignation, and the need for someone to listen to us.
Like any plant that you feed coffee grounds, our friendship grew fast. The coffee dates became movie nights, babysitting, and a matching tattoo that I swore I would never get.
There are 4,000 miles between us, and coffee doesn’t taste the same without her.
