It’s only taken 34 years! Or, would you like a Starbucks Gift Card?

Who doesn’t love their coffee? I’m not kidding! How often have you heard someone say that they can’t start their day without their cup of Joe? How many times have you said it? What would you do if your coffee maker went kaput one morning? Or are you the type that makes a detour, a pit stop, on your way out every morning? Ok, admit it… will you get a raging headache without your morning cuppa?

My love for coffee has come about relatively later in life, at least compared to many I know. My college roommates were famous for their large pots and long all night study sessions. At the time I thought the stuff was gross. And if I I did go after a cup I ended up feeling like I want to climb the walls!

Then I started working full time AND attending graduate school at night. Wouldn’t you know it. There was a coffee shop along the path between my car and my class. Guess where I started stopping every night. I had too, or so I felt, in order to stay awake through class!

Since my husband hates the stuff I never made it at home. A whole pot seemed ridiculous for one person. Then last summer I discovered Dunkin Donuts Iced Carmel Lattes. That was it! I was done forI My love affair with coffee was official.

So what do you think I got for Christmas this year? A Kierg Coffee maker. Now I can make it one cup at a time at home! I think my husband thought my $3 or more per cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee was going to going to bankrupt us.

So I’ve joined the ranks of the average American. I now too LOVE my coffee. I go through a cup each morning as we sit and work through our school work. I no longer visit Dunkin Donuts. Why? I recently shared a little bit about our new Vegan Diet. Most Dunkin Donuts do not carry cow milk alternatives such as soy. And none of their foods are Vegan friendly. So now I go to Starbucks! They will gladly make me any drink with soy and they often have something I can eat that fits my eating habits.

I want to celebrate my love of coffee, my new blog, and Starbucks! So I’m going to give away a $10 Starbucks gift card. Go ahead and make sure you like my Facebook Page. After that leave me a comment here and let me know what your favorite Kierg or Starbucks drink is. I’ll choose a winner at the end of the week.
