I don’t know about your families, but my parents and I don’t always see eye to eye. I mean I can guarantee they didn’t expect to end up with a tall, longhaired, tattooed son, but that’s how it ended up panning out. One thing we can all agree upon however is our love for coffee.

Like I’ve said before, when I was younger I actually thought my parents would be the reason I never enjoyed coffee, but it ended up being quite the opposite. Now every day when I have my morning coffee, no matter how far apart my parents and I are I know we’re doing something the same way every morning. Well – almost the same. For as long as I can remember they’ve only drank black coffee, and while I eventually crossed over to the dark side as well, I still use Coffee-mate in my coffee when I want to treat myself. Most of the time my parents, and I don’t get to spend a lot of time together due to the fact that my mom still works, and I’ve been on the road a lot lately, but late last month we had the chance to spend a whole week together on a family vacation. It was just like old times because I woke up to the smell of coffee brewing in the kitchen every morning, and let me tell you – that’s one thing that I definitely miss about living at home. Making your own coffee every morning isn’t nearly as enjoyable as having someone (thanks Dad) bring you coffee every morning.
