Last week I headed to Joplin with my folks to go to a dear friend's wedding. It was such a precious treasure of a time! I flew into Dallas then from there my parents and I drove up. On our way back to Dallas we stopped at my FAVORITE coffee shop, "Shades of Brown." We stretched our legs, pulled Kael out of the car seat and enjoyed a nice coffee date. They have THE best lattes and a sweet, earthy atmosphere. I used to live about an hour outside of Tulsa a few years back and this was my special place. From the array of old, golden crushed velvet chairs to the hand made pottery coffee mugs the whole place oozes with originality. I LOOOVE it! Someday over the rainbow I would love to have a coffee shop like this.
