Amazing Coffee

Day 28/30 – Divine decadence in a cup. For November (the month in which we celebrate Thanksgiving in the US), I’m trying to blog about something for which I’m thankful for each day of the month.

Chipmunks in my Tree

Day 27/30 – Today I’m thankful for Alvin, Simon and Theodore’s presence in our Christmas tree. I’m a huge Chipmunks fan, and my parents gave them to us as a gift a few years ago. It was Zeb’s idea to add them to our tree, and it’s become a yearly tradition. Makes me smile every…
