soul in a cup. b7874c3d97d1c3916be8c08d1b901fc4Coffee is far more than a beverage.  It speaks to the soul.  I know people who, when they go to bed at night, are already looking forward to their morning coffee.  I know others who view their cup of coffee in the morning as something sacred.  They see it as a way to set their inner self in motion – all over a steaming cup of elegant brew that kick-starts their path of mindfulness into motion for the day.

So take some time to learn about coffee and shop for some new gear.  Peruse all of the fun goodies that will enhance and enlighten your coffee experience.  And join in and share your stories.  Life is meant to be fun.  Enliven your coffee ritual by connecting with others.  Simply put, your story is interesting!

The great thing about boots?  There is a style to match everyone!  We can beat brush for snakes in some styles and take a walk on the wild side in others — all while feeling properly stylish for the purpose at hand.  For example, some boots are theoretical and designed to be worn only when going out with the girls (translate: not walking very far and then sitting for the rest of the night) and others are foot-stompin’ functional for dancing the night through until the barkeep is calling it a night.  And Boots knows about boots!  Shop with her and discover all of the fun you will have while hunting for boots in the Boots Store on the main menu!

measured out my life in coffee spoons. proportionCoffeecoffeecoffee.  The most lovely drink of all.  I like the Ethiopian proverb: “Coffee is our bread.”  To us coffee drinkers: our morning Joe is indeed our daily bread.  It is the stuff of champions and the great motivator.  It is the great connecter of the social heart and the inspiration of the writer’s soul.  Coffee’s got our back.  It whispers, You can!

Coffee.  It is poetry in a cup.  Thank you for entering the cabin and joining in.  Your presence is appreciated!
