Way Back When: Coffee Memories

Definitely a way back when for me...This picture was taken one holiday season...In the picture is (from left to right) myself, Christy (my cousin), and Marg (my sister).

The time stamp on the back of the picture says January 1987. So, I was almost 5 yrs old. I was currently the youngest child. My little brother was due in less than 2 months.
The one standing memory from way back when Christy and her parents would come down to Florida to see us was the smell of coffee. Mom and Dad rarely drank coffee..If they did, it was instant. So there was no rarely the smell of coffee in the house.
Nothing like waking up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee...which meant that Uncle Mark and Aunt Sarah had arrived in the night. And our wonderful cousin Christy was at our house!! yay!

I still think of my Uncle Mark and Aunt Sara when I smell coffee brewing. This is one of my earliest memories that I relive everyday. Now, I don't know if smelling coffee brewing and associated it with time spend with family is what causes me to brew a pot each day and have a cup or two. But I do LOVE my coffee!!

Thinking of family this holiday season. My Uncle Mark passed away a while ago...but the memories still live on....triggered by a morning cup of coffee.

What lovely, vivid memories, and the picture is a perfect companion. Sorry to learn of the loss of Uncle Mark, but what a lovely memory of holidays with him.

Thank you so much for playing along!
