Coffee and a Quote

It’s a lesser known (or not) fact that I have wanted to be a barista for quite some time. I am really impressed the art of it all. And of course I enjoy a good cup of coffee as much as the next gal, or guy… who enjoys a cup of coffee.

A while back a blogging friend of mine posted a recipe for a Caramel Macchiato. (FYI, I enjoy caramel too.) I notified her that I was going to try the recipe on that particular day, and then I had an impromptu visit from some guests that changed my plans all together. So I had to contact her later, knowing she wanted to know what I thought, with the disappointing news that I had not come through with my intentions. Alas! That is until now. On a snowy afternoon it was a lovely warm and sweet treat. And you can find the recipe at Quirky and Wonderful as well as many other recipes and writings.


Krista is a new blog friend over at From Food Stamps to a Future as well as the creator of Krista Kemp Designs on Etsy. Recently she nominated me for the 3 Day Quote Challenge. And not one to easily back down from a challenge, I accepted. (Actually it’s just a fun participation type of thing.) Thank you Krista!

Rules for the challenge:

Thank the blogger that nominated you.
Share one new quote on three consecutive days on your blog. They can be from anywhere, anyone, or anything.
On each of the three days, nominate three more bloggers to carry on with the fun! No pressure; nominees are free to decline.

My first day Quote Challenges are to the following:

Katie at Quirky and Wonderful
