everyone has those places that bring back great memories or feelings. feelings of summer vacation, or Christmas traditions, or a specific day that had a lot of meaning. the small coffee shop Copa Vida in Carlsbad reminds me specifically of summer vacation, do-nothing days, and sunny afternoons. this coffee shop has many other locations, but this specific one is closest to my home and is found in a little tiny business area. last summer I came here so many times with family and friends and it just has that small feel and not many people know about it. with summer close approaching, I needed to go back and get my fix of coffee and that summer feel. I took my boyfriend, two sister, and cousin to go and it was such a fun time of hanging out. it makes me even more excited for this summer and all the fun things that are to come.
