coffee . . .

Well, I have to start this post by admitting that I am an equal opportunity hot drink drinker. I like good tea and well made chai as much as I enjoy my coffee. It is so fun to read everybody's coffee experiences!
I would say that my best coffee experience happens every morning since I have been with my (now ) husband. We wake up an hour before we have to get up and drink a cup (or more) of coffee and talk. I realize that it doesn't sound that remarkable. But it is the one time of day that I know I will have his full attention and we can talk about anything. I have, at times, taken it for granted, until one of us is gone for a couple days then I will miss his coffee making skills (he makes a much better pot then I do) and our coffee time together. A little corney and I am a hopeful romantic, but when ever I think of coffee it is the first thing that comes to mind. And the best part is, we can be camping, trekking, staying at home, in a hotel, in the US, Europe, NZ or South America - we always set this time aside for ourselves (we do sometimes get funny looks with our individual coffee presses in our carry on bags while flying, but whatever.)
I am so excited for this swap!
Have a great weekend!!

Oh, that really brings back memories for me. The Skeptic and I did the same thing. We still try to, but now those cups of coffee are mixed up with hungry kids, diaper changes, and "mom!" I'm sure when the boys are grown and wev have those quiet mornings again, we'll look back on the "lukewarm coffee" years and miss it all!

I'm equal opportunity with the hot drinks as well! Well...ALMOST equal. I beleive coffee to be my favorite, but it is strongly rivaled by tea! And I'd never turn down a good frtothy cocoa either! :)
