So today is another Friday in The Press. A few weeks ago my Mom and Dad were over visiting. I was so delighted when I went back to our guest room to get my Mom for the morning and she opened the bedroom door wearing her very own Press  t-shirt. My Dad volunteered as well but his support consisted a bit more of enjoying our great coffee! 
There is something so special about having those you love experience your life and see what it looks like on a daily basis. For the past 2 1/2 years I have been telling my parents about The Press, the Art Exhibitions we have done, how more and more people in the community are coming out in support of our little coffee endeavor. But for them to actually see with their own eyes and smell the coffee, taste the toasties and eat the homemade soup and that was something to experience. They loved their time here and my Mom said she even has been dreaming about The Press since being back in Idaho. 

One of the reasons it's great to have visitors over, especially those who love you, is being able to see your life through their eyes. My parents raved about our church, our friends, and all that we are doing in the community. They loved The Press and will remember their trip so fondly. I will too. It was a dream come true having my Mom working by my side, looking over at a corner booth and seeing my Dad reading on his iPad, drinking coffee. There was something so sweet and true about those brief moments. I will treasure them forever! 
We are constantly seeing new faces come through the doors of The Press and I love it! In ways it feels like we may just be becoming that 'underground' coffee shop that people whisper about and word of mouth spreads through the town. I hope that this continues and that it becomes a consistent trend for our amazing, hidden treasure! So if you want to know what all the fuss is about, come out and see for yourself. We are open every Friday from 10am-4pm and the last Saturday of the month for live music from 6pm-10pm with the music on from 7:30pm-9:30pm. I look forward to meeting you and watching you experience our unique atmosphere and experience all that The Press has to offer you too!
