My New Writing Place

Borders Book Stores - sigh - I still miss it.

Many of you remember how sad I was back in 2011 when I heard they were closing. I had written 2 books there, closed out many a date night with my hubby there and spent hours chatting with my girlfriends in the cafe.  It was "my place."  And then they closed.

My family even bought me one of the little tables and two chairs from the Borders Cafe so that I would always have a piece of Borders. I still have my Border's Member's Card!

I know, I's wacky to be so attached to a bookstore, but there you have it. I was really attached. In fact, when I lost my Borders, I also lost the desire to write for a while. Weird, huh? If you notice, the last post to this blog was right about the time Borders closed. (Unless you count the post where I claimed to be abducted by aliens to explain my absence from blogging. I deleted that post.)

Anyway - I've found my new writing place! It's Crossroads Books and Coffee.

My new writing place!

Since then I've started writing again, and blogging on my devotional blog - Refreshed By The Word. I guess you could say I've rediscovered my creativity...and a really great place to get a good latte!

I used to stop by Borders almost every day on my way home from work, buy something chocolaty, and not work for half an hour. -Aaron

Thanks for stopping my the blog, Aaron. Borders was a great place to unwind. The cafe staff was always so friendly. Hope you've found another place to stop off after work to catch your breath.
