Dear Via - I Love You

Dear Via,

I love you.

Yesterday you made the day do-able. Your real coffee tasting powder made it okay for the day, to overlook the fact that you are neither Certified Fair or Direct Trade. I will overlook it. This one time. At 8am our power had been out for 6 hours and we had another 6 1/2 hours to go...unbeknownst to us.

Rural living rocks.

Via, my kids thank you too. I was a better Mama because of your caffeine composition. I was a happier being because you gave me that daily kick-in-the-butt I need. Yes, need. Combined with the water boiled in a pot, atop the wood burning stove - you were a lifesaver. Ok, maybe not quite a lifesaver but at least a life-enhancer.


Oh - and thanks honey, for the perfect Christmas gift. I know you enjoyed it too.

HA HA HA! OMGosh Ash - thanks for the laugh! ;) I SOOO understand what you were going through though - we made coffee by boiling water in a pot on our bbq! Hey, desperate times call for desperate measures! ;)
