Here or There? Well…I Choose Everywhere.
Dropping the kids off at school, I know that the stress of the day before is still lingering. I want nothing more than to unwind and get lost for a bit.
Resetting is essential to everyone. Some find their “zen” through Yoga, some find it through nature. I am unbiased with what works for you as long as it works. I for one find solace in two things. Reading and a nice strong cup of coffee, or in some cases a cup of Chai Tea.
Who says you only have one life? Have you not ever picked up a book sweetie? I have, and let me tell you, I have been places you cant even fathom.
Reading is a means to get lost into a fantasy land where the stress is nonexistent, and the world you are now in is in the authors hands. There are no decisions to make, no crisis to take care of, only the journey from page to page. I know within my soul that reading not only opens your mind to new dimensions, but it also causes your mind to become more in tuned to the world around us. It helps us evolve into the people we long to be.
Finding a relaxing setting is essential. Luckily I have both an amazing Bookstore as well as Coffee shop at my disposal. Where the vibes are calm, and the setting is Old World Industrial with a dash of Mediterranean Charm.
Reading is for de-stressing, the coffee is just to keep me sane!
Coldwater Books is one of the most charming stores in my hometown. Even before you walk inside, the bright doors and terrace with seating takes you to a fantasy land. Pushing through the double doors, the smell of fresh coffee and baked goods invites you in. Immediately all is right in the world, especially with the rows of books that surround you. There is nothing more calming than the atmosphere they have created here.
The two story open concept allows it to be breathtaking while showing you the vast amount of books, paintings, and so much more they have to offer. From author book signings, to music, and yes even some holiday themes, they are always looking for ways to bring the community in house. They also take pride in local authors and are always looking for new talents to showcase.
If you are looking for a new book, or are wanting to kickstart your day with some Java and a muffin, then ColdWater Books is the right place. Such a deserving place for my charismatic hometown of Tuscumbia, Alabama. Drop in at 101 W 6th St, Tuscumbia Al 35674, and leave the stress of yesterday at the blue doors.
