I can hear the mail truck approaching a half a block away, vroom stop, vroom stop, vroom stop, and when the truck arrives at my mail box I hear the sound of the metal door slamming shut on my mailbox. This is a happy sound because I love mail; junk mail, cards, magazines, letters, even bills, but most of all I like packages.
Tammy from Tammy Loves Dishes told me a surprise package was on the way, I was anticipating the arrival of this package for several days, and on Tuesday, the package arrived.
I wish I would have taken a photo of the package, because Miss Tammy knows how to wrap a package securely. After several minutes, I got the package opened. I could smell my gift before I removed the tissue paper, it smelled divine.
I discovered the aroma was from a bag of flavored coffee, Coconut Crunch, from Duck's Cottage in North Carolina.
I wanted to taste this yummy smelling coffee right away, but I don't drink caffeine after 1 p.m. because I wouldn't be able to sleep.
I did, however, get my Keurig ready for my morning coffee, my re-useable filler cup, favorite coffee cup, spoon, and the Coconut Crunch coffee sat waiting on the counter until morning.
Waking up the next morning I made my cup of coffee.
As the smell of the brewed coffee filled the air I couldn't wait to taste this brew, and when I had my first sip of Coconut Crunch I was not disappointed. This flavored coffee tastes of coconut with just a hint of caramel. Yummy!
I went to the Duck's Cottage website quickly realized that this coffee shop/bookstore is the places to visit when in the area. The Washington Post and the New York Times have both written articles about Duck Cottage.
Also, tucked inside the box was a re-useable cake tester, not only a useful item but beautiful, as well.
I met Tammy during my early days of blogging, even though we have never met face to face or talked on the phone, I feel a real connection with her, a friendship.
Thank you, Tammy, you have touched me with your kindness, thoughtfulness, generosity, and your friendship.
I would love to hear about any blog friendships you have made and visit their blog. The blogger community is filled with delightful ideas, stories, but most importantly are the people.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Thank you to all that write blogs I enjoy reading them every day, I just want you to know that you are appreciated.
