Coffee is my new best friend. No really, seriously. If I’m feeling sad, it cheers me up. If I’m feeling angry, it makes me smile. If I’m feeling lonely, it gives me comfort. Coffee rocks! In the summer, it cools you off when you drink it iced or better yet as a Frappuccino. In the winter, it warms you up as you stand outside at the bus stop. I don’t know how I ever thought I could live without it.
When I worked at Calvin Klein, many years ago (feels like a lifetime ago), I used to drink LOTS and LOTS of coffee. Maybe it was working in NYC or maybe it was the personal coffee maker in the back room where you could make your own personalized, fresh cup of coffee any time of the day or maybe it was the very late nights. Whatever the reason, coffee was definitely my friend back then. Once I moved back here and started my family, I drank less of it. I had to. When I was pregnant, I couldn’t drink too much caffeine so I started drinking decaf. Then, the migraines came. So I kept up with the decaf, vowing never to go back to caffeine again as those migraines are horrible! But now, I’m back here again. Drinking many cups throughout the day and let me tell you, I don’t plan on stopping. If those migraines return, I’ll have to suffer through them because coffee is now a necessity in life!
As many of you know, my favorite is flavored coffee. However, it is difficult to find organic flavored coffee so I drink my husband’s regular organic coffee, without any flavor. That is until today. Yesterday, my sweet husband brought home this organic half and half, hazelnut flavor and it is great! So, bring on the coffee!
