Celebrate: Coffee. Starbucks.

"A cup of coffee is a miracle. It's what can be. Tell me something that can simultaneously be warm and comforting and invigorating." - Dave Olsen (Starbucks)

I don't know if you know this about me...but I really do love coffee. You know on facebook where you can see the top words you use in your status? Mine is coffee (sorry to my family, friends...). And I truly do love Starbucks. A lot. I like their mission, their trade practices, how they give back locally and globally. I also like their coffee. Yes I do.

So, one of my favorite places to sit and read a book or write in my journal is Starbucks. It is also one of my favorite places to sit and chat with friends.

Last summer I started this Starbucks album. Since I spend so much time there I have quite a few pictures. It isn't complete - probably never will be.
*the cover*
painted black with a sleeve on the front.

*first page*
oh. I love sleeves or bras as my friends and I call them. Isn't it more fun to say "I want a bra for my coffee" than a sleeve?
Come on. You know it is.

photos, "bras" and fun

*another little inside glimpse*

This album is fun because it is filled with my friends, my family, my coffee. It uses scraps - no need to be matchy-matchy.

I like that Archer enjoys Starbucks like I do. He's turned into kind of a coffee snob (ooops!) and definitely prefers Starbucks to other places. When we go places we try to take a picture at Starbucks (send it via phone to Lorinda! she loves it) and print one for the book. We have pictures from Washington D.C., Indiana, Gig Harbor (all exotic locales)...sometimes we forget...the picture you can see above is from our local store. Fun times.

So friends, if we are out and about and a Starbucks comes within my sight you know I'll want to stop (please let me) and get coffee (I'll be a better person for it) and I might take your picture and add you to my book...

Celebrate what you love! Coffee! Starbucks!


  1. I also love coffee!! yum! and this is such a great idea!

  2. I'm in!! I'll join you anytime. ;O) My kids know all their menu options... yesterday when we were in the drive-thru line at Starbucks with Jamie, M was saying, "Hmmm... do I want apple juice, or lemonade, or a hot cocoa or peppermint or vanilla steamer? Hmm..." She went with a peppermint steamer and E got a kid's apple juice with ice. No doubt they will be coffee snobs in a few years... ;o)

  3. I love albums made from found items or from what is in the house. Your Starbucks album is really sweet.
    Cute post ;)


Comments are great. They are like the Grande, 2-pump, Cinnamon-dolche, non-fat latte of the computer...Really! Thanks for the bloggin' coffee!
