Athol. Idaho. The Pacific Northwest. 85 miles below the Canada-United States border; the longest international border in the world. Right in the middle betwixt Coeur d'Alene—to the south—and Sandpoint—to the north. Farragut State Park—on the southern tip of Lake Pend Oreille: the fifth deepest lake in the nation—is less than 5 miles to the east. Silverwood Theme Park is about 5 miles to the south.

Athol. Idaho Highway 54 connects East and West. Bike paths run through. Paddleboarding in the summer months. Sledding in the winter. Community. Our small, but quaint, little coffeeshop; creates a welcoming place. Hygge. Handcrafted coffee paired with baked goods. A dining room table sits in the center for all to enjoy. A place where other small business owners come to work, where students come to study, and where friends come to visit. First dates. Hellos. Goodbyes. Our porch adorned with flowers that change with the seasons. Shared space: from locals to out-of-state visitors. Family inspired. Family owned. Family run. Family.

Create. Pencil and pad. Artwork produced. Ideas become doodles. Doodles become sketches. Sketches become designs. Behind the bar: handwritten notes scribbled upon paper as blends are built. Tangible. Analog life. Life lived. Life at Abide. Creativity breathes.

"Let every man abide in the calling wherein he is called
and his work will be as sacred as the work of the ministry:
It is not what a man does that determines
whether his work is sacred or secular; it is why he does it.
The motive is everything."
— A.W. Tozer

North Idaho has many names: The Pacific Northwest. Upperleft USA. Upstate Idaho. Our family calls it home.
