Sam and a dozen of his friends took a road trip to the Washington state coast for Spring Break. These are some of the pics he snapped with his phone and texted to me while he was gone. By now they should be packed up and on their way home. I miss him and can’t wait to hear all about his trip!
This morning I was thinking about Sam while I was making myself a cup of coffee. I was thinking about how many cool experiences he has ahead of him in his life. I turned my attention back to my cup of coffee. I’m glad I’m 38. I’m glad I know three ice cubes make my 12 oz. cup of hazelnut cream the perfect temperature. But I’m still super excited for Sam and every cold, scalding, and lukewarm cup of coffee he has to drink before he figures out how to get the perfect temperature cup.
Sometimes I forget that coffee is not only for drinking and that it is almost like salt for chocolate. Here are some unique recipes featuring coffee I’m dying to try!
