When every single word makes sense

That photo is one of the many many
hung up in my local Starbucks

today...customers coming in to say goodbye.

Our local
Starbucks is closing. Cutbacks. Blah Blah Blah. It was one of the best Starbucks ever!The folks were amazing and I swear to God they all liked their job and worked with such style and passion. They were master Barista's!
I am serious.
It was my haven, our little escape from the day.

Shame on you Starbucks.

Wasn't yr slogan "Let's meet at Starbucks" or something last summer?
Well- why close the cafe and keep the drive through open in my town?
let's roll up and meet at the freaking drive through for a coffee shop experience? Whatever.

I am sad and I didn't even want to love you when we moved here. I wanted my old local fair trade place. But ya know what? It wasn't all about yr roasting brilliance that made me suck from the teat. It was those fine folks who knew my name and were genuine and kind. It was about those folks we really did come to know over the froth.

Get me delivered to yr email xo

And while I love the coffee shop up the street, that Starbucks was so kid-friendly--it was the perfect place to meet.

I understand. I drive 30 minutes on Saturdays to get my little slice of America here in Germany. Starbucks has its critics, but I still love it.

I do hope you find some place better and that does not charge you $4.50 for a tall coffee..

so sad for you guys..
