Coffee and Conversation Link Party #50

Coffee and Conversation

Good morning and welcome to Coffee and Conversation #50!

Wow, ya’ll really outdo yourselves sometimes!  Hope you enjoyed the party last week, when over 200 bloggers shared their best…and another good amount shared their About Page on our “About Page party“.  (If you missed it, don’t worry, we’ll have that one open for another few days…) Of course, while we cherish “the regulars” who come week after week and share top-notch content, we always welcome fresh new faces,too!

I had a great time this week looking through ya’ll’s posts… I’ve been studying alot lately about how to write a good headline, and how important it is.  I admit I could use quite a bit of work m’self, but since it’s on my mind alot, that was the lens I used when considering this week’s features.  So I thought I’d share with you some of my favorites, in no particular order 😉

Feature time!

Thank you, Ashleigh, for a taste of international travel. I don’t get out much these days, at least out of the country!

Sunday Antiquing in Maastrich



Belinda, at Live Life With Your Kids, piqued my curiosity and helped me consider “tech at the table” in a different perspective.

Why We Bring Our Devices to The Dinner Table


OK, let me tell you: I love chocolate, and I love avocado.  But chocolate and avocado together?  Well, I’m feeling a little brave, so I’m gonna try this at home and let you know…

Chocolate-Avocado Pudding

And also worth mentioning…


Thank you for your inspiration!  Now I hope you ladies will grab a button to brag about display on your site! 😉

      Thanks for the invite…we LOVE your Friday Features Linkup, so you KNOW we’ll be there 😉

    Thanks for highlighting my article – tech at the table!! It is a bit of a shift isn’t it! Thanks also for this link up every week.

      You’re very welcome, Belinda! I appreciated your point of view. Especially where teens are concerned, I think modeling interpersonal engagement with it and teaching them how to use it appropriately are 2 great reasons for bringing it “to the table” (both literally and figuratively)!
      So glad to have you join us here 🙂

      That one got me, too, Beth! I went to the store and got the ingredients and hope to try it over the weekend! Appreciate your valuable contributions each week!

    The Chocolate Avocado pudding had me doing a double take, it looks amazing! I can see why you featured it here. I enjoyed Belinda’s post on the benefits of gadgets and meals used in the right way.
    Thanks for the heads up on great pieces and for offering a place to gather and connect. You are appreciated!

    • Pat July 15, 2015 at 11:52 am #

      Thanks for the encouragement, Dawn! And thanks for linking up 🙂 I’d be honored for you to add our badge to your “Friends on the Journey” page… We should do a page like that one of these days…

      Oh, Ashleigh, Maastricht sounds charming! I used to love to travel BC (“before children”) and hope to get back to it seriously some day. You even motivated me to do an internet travelogue…what fun!!
