Coffee with Daddy

Coffee of the Day - Maple Fudge

My love of coffee began on Saturdays with  my Daddy. I think even he would be amazed to find that those days of going for doughnuts would have led to the love of coffee I have today!


Every Saturday morning, he and I would venture off to this wonderful doughnut store. I can still picture it in my mind! after choosing our doughnuts, we would sit on the big diner stools where our doughnuts would be brought to us on plates. my dad would have his cup of coffee and I would have a glass of milk. he would always add just a bit of coffee to my milk, thus giving name to 'coffee milk.' I felt like such a big girl, drinking my coffee with Daddy! those days were so precious to me!!! :)

after breakfast, we would head to the car wash where we would drive through the big machines as they washed and buffed the car to a sparkly clean. do you remember those drive thru car washes? not many around these days.


So leave it to Elisabeth Bell to pop along with a stamp that sums it all up and brings those memories right back to the forefront of my heart again! Just in time for Father's Day, here is "Daddy's Peeker." again, these two could have been me and my Daddy! :) for so many years, it was just he and I.


my card uses papers from the Basic Grey Boxer collection, vintage buttons, coffee die from Verve and main die by My Favorite Things, and a piece of inked cardboard.


What better way to begin the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's Summer blog hop than with a card honoring my Dad for Father's Day. :) sure do miss him. since my birthday and Father's Day were always either on the same day or within a day or so of each other, it's a special time for me. :) love ya, Daddy - always and forever!

thank you for stopping by! enjoy your weekend!
Jennifer

You have such wonderful memories of coffee and your dad. Great cards.

Seleise Barrett said...

Thank you for sharing the story of your dad. You're not going to believe this but I grew up having "coffee milk" with my dad. I would wait for he and my uncle to come in for their morning coffee with my mom. She'd pour me a glass of milk and just like you, a bit of coffee would be added. That's why I still prefer creamy coffee. :) My dad passed away years ago but will always have those special memories. Great image and great card. Thanks for sharing and hugs to you for your special memories too.
