Right out of college I went to work for Starbucks in their management training program, and ever since have had a slight obsession with all things coffee. I would even venture to say that I’m a coffee snob, except that if I need caffeine I’m willing to drink gas station and McDonald’s coffee too.
But when I want the good stuff, I turn to this:
100% Kona coffee. Is Starbucks’ the best? Nope – for that you need to try Badass Coffee out of Hawaii. But for now I’ll sit back with my steaming mug of Starbucks Kona and listen for the waves…
This morning at 7:05AM CST my sweet, amazing grandfather passed away. I don’t know if it’s totally hit me yet, but I do know that since my 27th birthday in September that this has been one crazy year with my paternal grandfather passing away in October, miscarrying less than a month ago, and now my maternal grandfather passing away. I’m so thankful to have such an amazing and loving family, a heritage that has been passed down by both sets of truly loving and Godly grandparents.
Grandpa, you are so loved and are already severely missed. I wish I could have been there to give you one last hug and kiss, to tell you how much you mean to me, and how much you and Mimi have influenced generations of couples to love one another. You were and still are a great man – and I can rest knowing that you are in heaven with your beautiful wife and your first great-grandchild. I love you Grandpa.
