Cup of Joe.
I’m a obsessed lately. I don’t know what happened. I used to be a casual coffee drinker, one or two cups a day. Now I find myself wishing for a third or fourth…only indulging sometimes. I even want it at night- what is that about? A few years ago I couldn’t even smell coffee grounds at night without feeling woken up.
My coffee interest really perked up (ha! get it?) when I was a barista at Starbucks in college. Every week we got a free pound of coffee to take home and it was all you could drink espresso during your shift. I worked the early shift, 5 am to 2 pm, so I needed (and consumed) a lot of coffee. I knew I had really gotten in deep when I switched to almond Americanos. They mean business.
One of my favorite treats is ordering a cup of decaf coffee with dessert on date night. I’m pretty sure this means I am officially a grown up. You’d think that birth of my baby would have ushered in my adulthood, and yet it is my ever-increasing love and need for caffeine that proves that I have shed my childish ways and put on my old lady pants.
Instead of drinking coffee at 9 pm, I scratched that itch without keeping myself up all night. Thanks, Pinterest. Head over and follow my “Ode to Java” if you’re a caffeine junkie like me. Happy pinning!
