Welcome to my blog!
I began this blog as a way to document our family’s journey. I want to share what God is doing in our lives, and possibly be an encouragement to those who visit it. I chose an espresso theme because I am a coffee lover. 🙂 My simple jungle home has a kitchen filled with coffee décor, and I purchase a coffee themed wall calendar every year. Some people call me a coffee snob, but I prefer the word ‘connoisseur’. I daily grind my own beans, and someday hope to try roasting my own as well. I love the taste of a good cup of coffee, but more than that, coffee to me is about relationships with the people I am drinking it with. On occasion I do enjoy a quiet afternoon cup of coffee by myself, but I prefer sharing coffee and conversation with those I love or with visitors who stop by my home. One of my favorite childhood memories was when my parents sat together in the living room each evening and drank a cup of coffee and chatted about the day’s events. As a little girl I wanted to be a part of that conversation time, and sometimes my parents allowed me to join them. At that point I didn’t think the black coffee tasted so great (definitely was an acquired taste for me) but the time with my parents was priceless, and a memory I will cherish forever.
