My adoration of coffee has been a part of my life since drinking my first latte while studying for the SAT tests in high school. After that, Matt and I hosted our cocktail hour as a coffee hour and completely took over the local Starbucks with 150 wedding guests. You could say coffee has been a huge part of my every day for some time.
As I’ve gotten older it’s been made more often at home than not. I’ve been waiting for a product to allow me to enjoy my favorite lattes at home and am so excited that Starbucks® Caffé Latte K-Cup® pods have brought my favorite flavors of mocha, caramel and vanilla home to enjoy.
It may sound silly, but I’ve found that stopping and creating a small celebration moment in the middle of the day does wonders for my joy and happiness. I often look for occasions to make an everyday moment a little more of a celebration. One fun and easy way I’ve found – a sip and enjoy a latte with whip cream and sprinkles!
The mocha latte is such a great pick-me-up for an afternoon that seems to be dragging on and throwing sprinkles on top makes it instantly seem like a party. There is always a reason to celebrate (even today!) and taking a couple minutes to create a festive drink in the middle of the afternoon can give you that luxurious feeling for the rest of the day. The Starbucks® Caffé Latte K-Cup® pods make this easy to do.
After my mocha latte has been made, I love to sit for a minute and write down 5-6 things I am grateful for (one of which will obviously be sprinkles!). It is a habit I started while in the midst of a discouraging season last year and it has served me so well. Whether you are feeling down about your job, last night’s election, the kids being crazy, or all those to-dos coming at you this week – sitting down for a tiny celebration and remembering a few specific things in your life that you are grateful for will quickly give you a reason to celebrate.
Stir, Sip, Enjoy. Signature Starbucks® latte flavors, now available in a K-Cup®
