The Outdoor Office
So, I was driving by Starbucks the other day and noticed it was looking more like a beach club than a coffee shop. I wasn't sure what to make of it, but I parked the Tacoma (Yep, Plume, a Tacoma!), got myself a drink, plopped down in the orange cushion, opened up my laptop and proceeded to get some work done. I have to admit, I'm taking quite a liking to this new Starbucks vibe. It's got a mod summer feeling going on. Is this just a So Cal look? Has Starbucks taken a last ditch effort at squeezing every last drop of summer out of the season? Or are they color coordinating with their new Orange Mango Banana Vivanno? Whatever it is, my computer and I love it. It's relaxing and energizing all at the same time. My Mac and I can get a lot of work done this way, yes we can. And so while the couple across from me continued to speak of important business matters and real estate dealings, I discreetly pulled my point & shoot out of my adorable little bag and took a pic of my surroundings to share with you all.
And yes, I do realize I am opening myself up for much scrutiny and nay-saying for even mentioning the "S" word, but as you've probably learned by now, the Lorenzens don't hide much. It'll make for some interesting comments at least.
