Monday Morning Traditions

17 February 2014

As a Southern sorority girl, traditions are important to me. When I first moved to England, everything was new and different. I had no sense of what my routine would be. 

My mom had come to England for a week in September to move me in. Not knowing where to go or what to do, we grabbed breakfast just up the road from my new flat in a place called Park Street Cafe. The staff were friendly and helpful, which was the welcoming feeling I needed in my new environment. 

Since that first breakfast in Park Street Cafe, I have tried to make an effort to go back every Monday morning. It has become a little tradition of mine. Obviously some days are busier than others and I don't always make it. But it's nice to walk into the cafe and the staff immediately put in my order without me even saying a word. 


Happy Monday!
xoxo

  1. I love this! My Monday morning tradition is a cup of coffee + lemon scone from the coffee shop down the street. It's what gets me out of bed at 6am.

    1. Isn't it nice to have something to look forward to on Mondays? It always seems to start my week off right.

  2. I remember that morning too. Can't wait to go back, except next time I will say, "I'll have what she is having".
    Love,
    Mom

  5. It's nice having a tradition, especially when you are in a new place. It must feel good having the staff know your order. You are a regular!

    1. Mondays can either make or break your week, so it's always nice to do something special.

  9. There's nothing more comforting abroad than a place to go to that knows you and your order!
