I recently had the opportunity to be featured at The Gathering Table on a beautiful collaboration with the most amazing writer and one of my best friends for life, Kaitlyn Mahoney.
Kaitlyn and I have been meeting for a while now and have had the deepests and more soul touching conversations over morning coffee so, it made perfect sense, we had to build a photo essay about coffee and donuts and show how those things bounded our friendship into a very strong positive thing in our lives.
Coffee is what first brought us together as friends.
And I quote Kaitlyn from the article at The Gathering Table:
When I was going through my divorce, Maria sat next to me, her milky cappuccino next to my black coffee, and reminded me that everything was going to be ok every time I forgot. When Maria launched her freelance business, she told me about her plans over coffee. Even after we stopped working together, we still met regularly to catch each other up on our lives and share our fears, hopes, and goals.
So two weeks later, we met for coffee, again. But this time to photograph our process. We made donuts (some vegan, some not — it’s surprisingly easy to accommodate different diets if you try), laughed and talked and shared and drank coffee.
Because coffee doesn’t care if you’re going through a divorce or if you’re vegan or Mexican or scared about the big plans you’ve made for yourself. It just warms you up and provides the perfect backdrop for deep talks with friends.
