Changes and the FIRST GIVEAWAY!

Hello dear "Coffee Lovers"! I am sorry I haven't been able to respond to every single comment in the past few days, trust me, I will respond to everyone soon... As you can see I've made some changes on the Blog, starting with the name from "Coffee Lovers" to "The Coffee Shop", I made the obvious changes because I want to give this blog the opportunity to reach more people and because of the "variety of the topics", not only of the posts I've already written but of those that are coming... I want you to feel here like you are in your favorite coffee shop, where you can talk to a friend or be on your own, to just have a good cup of coffee or read something interesting, to just enjoy yourself! Stay connected for more changes!

And here is the first giveaway:

$20.00 USD Starbucks gift card!





To enter you just have to:

1. Follow this blog
2. Post a comment and explain why you love coffee
3. Post a link to this blog on any post of your blog and leave the link on a comment here!

Enjoy!

The smell of coffee is a wonderful aroma. The nutty roast smell! Then there's the taste, so satisfying, black or as a Latte. When it's cold, I love to rest the warm cup against my cheek or wrap my hands around it for warmth. Ii you ever open the door to a home and smell freshly brewed coffee, it's such a welcoming smell. Then there's always the reason for friends coming together, one can always say, "lets go get a cup of coffee".
Coffee has been a part of my social and working life forever. The aroma and taste brings back fond memories of my youth and family. Bottom line though is the many different flavors and most are delicious!

I love coffee b/c it gets me up in the morning to do my quiet time! And, if it is sweet enough, I can use it as a snack after dinner instead of dessert. And, it's great to go out w/ friends for 'coffee', not just a meal!

I love coffee. Just the smell of it sends comfort across my whole body. I drink it in the morning, for afternoon book shopping at B&N (I can't go into that place without getting a Starbucks coffee)
And I absolutely love it at night while spending time with my hubby snuggled up on the sofa.
Yep...I doooo love coffee!

I think I did this right, at least I hope so as I would like that Starbucks prize!

I love coffee for the instant pick-me-up I get with it. Lately I have been trying flavored coffees and I've found several that I really like. But the thing about coffee is that it is a very personal drink but universal also. Everybody likes theirs in a different way, and yet it's still "coffee", so that kind of ties all coffee drinkers together in some way.

Follower of the blog
I love the smell of coffee. I also like to go to my local Starbucks and sit down with a hot cup and relax with a good book or magazine. For me that is just so relaxing. The smell also reminds me of my mimi and papa...who always have a pot brewing. And it always brings back good memories.

Do I LOVE coffee???? Yes, I do! I drink it every day and without it, I am grumpy. Sounds like an addiction, don't you think? I drink it with 1 creamer and 1 spenda. YUM! It is like dessert to me!

Farmhouse Fixers said...

Hey there! Seriously you are doing a Starbucks giveaway?! Are you the best blogger ever???!!! I love coffee... If coffee were a man I would probably have married him. I am actually thinking about mixing and matching different blends to see if I can come up with my own coffee experience. Odd huh? I literally would drink coffee all day if my husband could handle me that way....
Also - did you change your blog? It looks great!

Why I love coffee: It smells heavenly, it's a very "companionable" drink to share anytime, it enables my brain to function at the beginning of the day, its "wake-me-up" quality always increases my optimism for the brand new day, and it (usually) tastes divine! I also love coffee-flavored anything! Thank you for holding this giveaway.

Why I love coffee---My first adult boyfriend was a waiter at a fancy restaurant--he worked late and pounded espresso all night --when we would see each other he smelled like coffee---I thought it was so sexy--(I still do---I'd much rather a man smell like coffee than axe or heavy cologne!)
