So, let's chat a bit about coffee!
1. When did I start drinking coffee?
My father would always go to the coffee shop in the mornings and have coffee, mom's early beverage of choice was Diet Pepsi...so I didn't grow up with coffee around. Once I started college and studied late at night for tests, I thought I'd try coffee to perk me up on those long nights. I started drinking coffee with a little sugar, and soon fell in love with its aroma and warmth!
2. What is my favorite brand(s)?
Dunkin' Donuts French Vanilla is my all-time favorite brand and flavor of coffee! My husband tries to sneak in off-brands on occasion, and I remind him every time of my preference, even if it costs a couple dollars more. Husbands!
3. What is the most amazing coffee that I've had? Where and when?
When my hubby and I met, we would spend Saturday mornings at a pancake house in a Chicago suburb that had the STRONGEST coffee. It soon became our standard of coffee at restaurants and we craved strong coffee for several years after that.
4. If I don't drink my needed coffee, I will...
get a headache, even a bit nauseous, and irritable! Yes, I'm a coffee addict!
It's hard to believe that I was able to quit drinking coffee while pregnant, even had an aversion to the aroma when I was expecting my sweet daughter...hubby was not even allowed to brew a pot at home for a few months! LOL!
I LOVE COFFEE! I begin each and every day with a cup (or two or three), taking my jumbo Tervis filled with coffee on work days!
Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #238 was just what I needed to frame up the flavor of the day!
I used some fabulous Verve goodies on my card today!
