must. have. coffee.

Better late than never, here is my selected prompt this week, courtesy of MamaKat.

Which appliance in your home would you most miss living without if you had to live without?

Without a doubt, my coffee maker. I say my coffee maker because it was a birthday gift from Husband, so technically it's mine, nevermind the fact that he makes the coffee 90 per cent of the time. 

To tell you the truth, I raised an eyebrow when I unwrapped it on my 22nd birthday. A coffee maker? Really? I may have mentioned it in passing, that it would be nice to have a coffee maker at home, but a kitchen appliance doesn't exactly scream romance.

Boy, was I wrong. This is her. Isn't she lovely? She keeps the coffee right inside — always hot and no pot to clean! Looking back on three years of delicious coffee, I see that this might be the best gift Husband has ever given me. 

Yes, I'm a coffee addict, but I'm not a coffee snob. It doesn't have to be Starbucks. We love picking out new kinds of coffee at the grocery store and experimenting with new brands and blends. We tote our travel mugs most places we go, and we save a significant amount of coin in the process.

What appliance could you not live without?


  1. 90% of the time? Really??

    Yours TRULY,


  2. First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I've had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas
    out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!

  3. Great blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
