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!

The Go-To

There are few things in life that bring me instant joy like the images and videos of baby kangaroos. My only regret is I did not get to visit this joyous sanctuary on my visit to Australia. Do you have something – an image? a song? – or a person? that immediately brings joy toContinue reading “The Go-To”

Trust & Connection

I recently streamed a FB LIVE about the importance of connection and how trust factors in when the connection has been broken or dormant for many years. I talked some about how essential these links are to my personal happiness. I thought that my renewed endeavors to re-connect with two friends with whom I hadContinue reading “Trust & Connection”

Wishing for an escape…

I admit that I have been daydreaming about escaping. Are you doing the same? I guess it is not so much as an escape as it is a return to my previous routines. I suspect that these quarantine times and restrictions have changed my routine and I never realized how comforting it was to haveContinue reading “Wishing for an escape…”
