Gratitude Challenge: November 15


Today I am thankful for coffee.

I am also thankful for flavored creamers.  Particularly CoffeeMate's Chocolate Raspberry, and International Delight's Chocolate Caramel.  But also some of the amazing peppermint mochas and other such stuff...

But back to the coffee.  I love opening up a package of coffee and just smelling it.  I love the smell as it brews.  I love holding a hot mug of coffee in my hands in the morning and breathing in the steam.  I love how it makes me feel warmer.

And I love the taste.  Today it is Chocolate Caramel.  Mmmmm...

My coffee is my one splurge, the one thing I make sure I can continue to indulge in when everything else is falling apart.  It keeps me from feeling deprived.

And, of course, coffee makes it so I can get through days like today.  When I was up far too late chatting with a friend, and then I made the mistake of reading "one more chapter" of an amazing book I'll be reviewing later today.  Yes, that turned into finishing the book around 3:30.

So that review will get written.  After I have a couple mugs of coffee...

I could have written this post. Well, except for the caramel reference. I adore caramel; but for some reason I don't like it in my coffee. I haven't tried chocolate raspberry - but I must! Sounds awesome!

I love the smell of coffee. Not the taste.

I love the smell of coffee, but I prefer to drink regular soda. It keeps me awake, but it is hard on my waistline :(.
