A cup of coffee shared with you

is time well spent…

and warm memories made.

Thank you!

I saw this card in my SendOutCards catalog click here for more information and I had to include it because Vicki over at http://abundelic.wordpress.com/2013/01/29/coffees-on/  invited me for coffee today and I thought it would be fun to participate.  She’s asked a few questions that I needed to answer…so here goes!

1) How many cups of coffee per day? Well, it depends on what time I get up ~ usually 2 or maybe 3 at the most!

2) What is your favorite caffeine delivery system? My little Keurig!

 3) What was your best cup of coffee? Cafe au lait sitting at La Chancla Bar looking out over the Mediterranean on a bright sunny day, overlooking La Playa Blanca in Malaga, Spain.

4) What was your worst cup of coffee? On an airplane

5) What does your favorite mug say? Mom

6) How do you take your coffee? A 1/2 of a teaspoon of sugar  and a bit of  low-fat half and half

 7) When was your first cup? Spain!

 8) Have you ever gone on a coffee or tea date? Yes, many times!

So now I guess it’s my turn to host my first virtual coffee and tea date and I’m inviting all of you!  Please take a moment to chat below ~

Tell me about yourselves and how you like your coffee or tea! 

Feel free to invite friends and even host your own! 

What a lovely way to keep our energy up  and connections flowing as the week begins!

Have a lovely week!

Shine On!  Or dare I say, “Cheers to Tuesday!”

Gratitude 29 ~ Gracias Gracias Gracias

At age 12, my Dad brought me to my first Broadway play which was Evita.  I remember it was also the first time I wore high heels which he had bought for me.  Dad loved listening to the music from Evita and we listened to it over and over while we played checkers & backgammon in the living room at night.  It was then that I think my love for the Spanish language began and stayed with me.

I remember knowing the lyrics of the entire show and I sat on the edge of my seat the entire time, lip-syncing every word so as not to bother the people in front of me.  I was mesmerized by the story, the music, the lights ~ the entire experience.  I will always remember Patti LuPone and subsequently Madonna for their portrayals of Evita Peron.  When Evita the movie came out, Dad bought me the dvd…it was our special bond.

I began learning Spanish around the same time and I remember my Dad telling me that it was my only talent and that I should pursue it.  Mathematics was not my strong point, but languages ~ well there, I excelled.  I spent my Junior Year in Malaga, Spain where I fell in love with all things Spanish and felt so very much at home that my parents feared I wouldn’t return to finish my last year of university in the States, but I did.

So today I am thankful for my Dad’s wisdom and introduction to Spanish.  So Dad, today'[s gratefulness goes to you.

Gracias, Gracias, Gracias…
