For the Love of Coffee


It was Christmas morning after a long Christmas Eve.  I was about nine but I always thought I was an adult and I always acted more self-important than I actually was.  After all, I am the oldest grandchild on that side of the family.  As I sat at my grandma's kitchen table with my great-grandma sitting next to me I got up the courage to reach over and take that mug.

This was it.  This was the moment I proved my adulthood.  I made the journey and was ready for my task.

As I felt the warm heat from the dark liquid my heart began to race.

If I had only known that my life would be forever changed.

This one addiction would drive me to spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

I would drive all the way across town for one smooth drop of that dark, chocolate liquid.

So here, on Christmas morning, I began up the road of addiction, one that I still haven't quite gotten under control.

Coffee--the bane of my existence.  If only you were so good.


Now your turn has come.  Link up with me,  Dalayna from Pointing Up and Elizabeth from Fearless and Frugal.  We're also hosting a giveaway.

  3. Hi! Just stopping by from Sunday Social :) My love for coffee started very much like yours did. My grandma let me try hers and soon she was pouring me my own cup for our little afternoon "tea parties." My love runs deep. There isn't anything like it!

    I'm your newest follower! Nice to meet you :)

    xoxo,

  7. Hi Danette! I too love coffee......but I think I am a little unusual, as I didn't "discover" it until I was in my mid 30s. My "stay awake" drink of choice in college was Tab. I am though, making up for lost time.....
    I found you through your Q&A on Britt's blog Bee LittleQueen. Looking forward to getting to know you!

    I don't have a blog myself, so I can't link up.....but am enjoying reading all of you guys!

    1. Lynne, I'm glad you're here and I'm glad that you know Brit. She's such a...sweetie, isn't quite right. She's so, so cheerful! and inspiring. I don't know if she even realizes.
