Coffee Love

Let me tell you how my love of coffee started.

This page is gonna be exactly what it says! Coffee Love.

My earliest memory of having a coffee-flavored beverage was coffee milk made with Coffee Time syrup. I’m pretty certain all five Foley kids drank whole milk over ice, flavored with Coffee Time syrup. Of course, there is no love like your first– which for me would be Dunkin’ Donuts. It was such a big part of my childhood. Indeed, the Dunkin’ Donuts across the street from St. Stephens was a must stop after Mass. In those days though it was for the donuts, not for the coffee.

As my family of origin moved off into different directions, I eventually landed in DC with my Dad at the ripe age of 9. My late father, William T. Foley, Jr (yes.. he was a WTF) made and poured himself a cup of coffee every single morning, coffee with cream and two sugars. This is also known in New England as a ‘Regular’ coffee. If you prefer your coffee any other way, you need to be specific. Not only did Dad pour a mug of coffee for himself, he made one for me as well. I mean, he was doing the best he could as a single father. It wasn’t until I turned about 17 that it suddenly dawned on me as to why my school teachers were frustrated with me and called me hyperactive! I was drinking coffee like an adult long before parents decided it was okay to bring their kids to Starbucks!

And my love of coffee and coffee-flavored foods has never diminished. Therefore, this page will be dedicated to learning about the coffee shops you love, the kind of coffee you like and photos of coffee mugs galore! As I mentioned when launching this website, there are two things that get me through the day, coffee and courage!

And then what happened?

Wow. I love my blog. I love my intention to write about humor, health, happiness. Here’s the truth. I was CRUSHED. I could not write. I could not cry. I was suffering from a tsunami of anxiety leading up the U.S. Presidential election, the outcomes, the lawsuits, the recounts…the whole damn thing. I know, IContinue reading “And then what happened?”

For the love of music

I love a great playlist. Isn’t music fantastic? It can inspire, change our moods, and take us immediately back to a moment in time. I was thrilled when a college classmate created a Spotify playlist that reflected the music we listened to and danced to at our college pub. I also created a playlist forContinue reading “For the love of music”

Welcome to October

I love Fall. It’s so special in New England. I pulled over and captured this video tonight as I was driving to pick up takeout. (Takeout hot pastrami& swiss cheese from Anthony’s Food Shop in York, Maine is y-u-m-m-y! btw) Each take from the same bridge, same time but on opposite sides.
