Out for Coffee

Family

Normally this would not be a blog-worthy event, but for the past year we’ve stayed true to our local Covid mitigation guidelines and in staying home as much as possible, we’ve been making all of our food and drink in our own kitchen. Today we made a tentative first step toward resuming our pre-pandemic life and after an appointment in town we stopped by The Farmhouse Mercantile & Coffee Bar, one of the newer additions to the downtown Sylva scene. We were masked while practicing social distancing and didn’t linger long. Instead we did a little shopping at Black Balsam Outdoors and B&B Gifts before heading off to Franklin on another errand and sipping coffee along the way. We’re a long way from feeling “normal” but just knowing that we have begun the immunization process and that as a society we’re headed to herd immunity makes us feel hopeful.
