For as long as I can remember, I've been making memories over a nice cup of coffee. Coffee is a staple in my diet, and has been since I first started drinking it, my senior year in high school. I started with iced-coffee, and soon later discovered my love for hot coffee. There is something so warm and magical about drinking a nice cup of hot coffee, during a crisp fall day. That cup is especially even more enjoyable if shared with family or friends.
One of my favorite things about fall, is all the pumpkin flavored foods and drinks. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bagels, pumpkin donuts...PUMPKIN COFFEE!!!
I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love pumpkin coffee. However, this fall I am pregnant. I have been staying away from caffeinated coffee, yet still indulging in a cup of decaf once or twice per day. I was really disappointed, because I couldn't find decaf pumpkin coffee anywhere. I thought I would have to go without it this season.
Then I discovered something beyond perfect. Nestle Coffee-Mate Pumpkin Spice creamer.
It's HEAVEN. Absolute bliss. I have introduced it to all my family and friends that come over to share a cup of coffee with me. My mom who doesn't normally even like flavored beverages was drawn into the sweet aroma.
She spent the past weekend with me, helping me to prepare for baby boy #2's arrival. We washed itty bitty baby clothes, and prepared several freezer meals -- so Jared and I don't starve when we're home with a newborn baby and big brother Lincoln.
We indulged in delish pumpkin coffee, while chatting about all the wonderful events about to occur. A new baby. Lincoln being a big brother. Jared and I adding the final little piece to our family. My parents getting to meet their second grandchild. All those new memories we are about to make. All of which will be shared over many cups of coffee.
Do you make your own memories over coffee? Have you enjoyed a cup of pumpkin coffee this season?
