Guest Post Wednesday: Coffee Bliss

Dear Optimists,

Today, my brother and I started our workday quite normally. We were tired and hoping the expensive Starbucks would start kicking in soon.

It was slightly cloudy outside and about midday when a man in a Sparkletts uniform walked into our office (we have a water delivery service through them). He said that they had just teamed up with a coffee company and had an offer for us. Our boss is on vacation, so this sort of decision is left to me!

They had a new service where they would rent a Single-Serve Brewer to us for $5 a month and deliver the coffee for an additional $12. My brother and I snapped out of our working daze and the three of us started discussing what an awesome thing this would be for our office. It’s not limited to just coffee, but comes with teas and hot chocolate as well!

We pictured our impressed clients forgetting about all their troubles while sipping our fine coffee.

My brother pointed out the perfect place for the Brewer while I signed.

Mr. Boss will most likely not share our enthusiasm, but until he gets back it’s coffee glee for the rest of us!

Love,
Elizabeth of Currently Processing Negatives.

Sunday Relaxation

Dear Optimists,

I love relaxing after a perfect weekend full of fun and excitement. Do you ever have one of those weekends where it’s Sunday night, you’re relaxing with tea and a good book, or a beer and the game, or whatever your Sunday evening preference, and you just think to yourself “What a damn good weekend”?

I love those.

Love,

Den

It’s Fall Here! (No, not really…)


Dear Optimists,

I don’t know about all of you, but I am eternally in love with Fall, even though it has that horrible back to school feeling. I get tired of hiding in air conditioning. I miss gentle breezes and outdoor noises, sleeping with the windows open instead of in the AC, stuff like that. So needless to say, I long for Autumn as summer winds down. Well, today I got a little taste of it. Even though it’s only August, we had one of those mornings where you kind of need a hoodie, a morning I expect from September, not August.

How did I celebrate? With a cup of hot Rooibos Coconut Tea (which I highly recommend) with a little milk.

Yum.

Love,

Den
