There’s this calming feeling when you go back to a place for a second time, especially since it’s been nearly two years since the prior visit. Bean Rush Cafe has the coziness of Annapolis tucked away in an even more quaint and peaceful part of town, if that’ even possible.
Yes, there’s always happiness layered upon happiness if you know where to look, or maybe not look so hard. It’ll just come to you. I think I wrote about a similar experience here back in August of 2016. It sounds dream like when I say it like that. It does feel like two years ago, but then again where did two years go?
Two years and many visits to one of my favorite towns in between compelled me to come back to one of the more charming and welcoming coffee shops (here is more about them and their contact information) I’ve ever had the pleasure of coming to.
It’s July, it’s summer, and it’s one of those be careful what you wish for deals. While it’s gotten uncomfortably hot for many, in many ways we’ll miss this when it gets colder. I’ve never been one to complain about the heat. I love this weather, and I stay hydrated, stay safe, and stay spiritually whole. It’s easy to do.
Iced tea is the only thing on my agenda at this and will be for a while. Per recommendations from one of the friendliest faces and voices behind the counter, I went with the Berry Berry Iced Tea and a Raspberry pastry. Why pastry? Why not?
They complemented each other well, and I’m all for a lovely display. The colors and tones fit the summer. So do so many, and many other themes will be coming in the next few weeks, if not sooner.
This tea is fun. Where have I heard that before? I found a spot on the porch, which felt familiar and divine, well yeah, I sat here two years ago. It’s not that mysterious and surrealisitic, but it’s still fun to me over-the-top dramatic.
I love this place so much. I felt like I was at a friend or family’s house, and even felt more comfortable than that.
People were saying hello to one another, holding doors, and there was lots of smiling. This made me so happy. Where am I? I’m in the most peaceful and serene place I’ve been in some time.
The flowers in the vicinity, the refreshing tea, and harmonious surroundings makes me feel nostalgic, relieved, and wanting more of this. I love more of this and I love Annapolis so much.
I didn’t want to get up, I didn’t want to move, so I didn’t. I sat there for a while and just breathed some fresh air, soaked up the most beautiful and brightest rays of sunshine, and just appreciated being. This is where the phone and camera was turned off.
For a few moments I was the only person on Earth, and that’s a feeling I sense will be coming back in symbolic and necessary doses, when the timing is right. Certain spirits will throw in reminders when they feel it’s right.
A place that has been so good to me for such a long time, is going to get a lot of love and support from me over the next few weeks, if not more. There’s so much to celebrate, and while the wording and themes may be similar, the stories will all have a touch something new. It’s all relative, it’s all constant, but it’s all love.
My heart will always be with Annapolis.
Peace be with you.
