I look forward to my Saturday mornings almost every hour of the work week. It is my time I spend snuggling up with my still half asleep babies before their energy kicks in, while I drink my coffee and the world waits. I have nowhere to be and nothing to do but just be present with them. In these moments is where I find my peace.
It appears so simple, so mundane, so vanilla – but it makes my heart soar. My most favorite part of my entire week is this very hour.
I like my life the way I like my coffee, really. Not a whole lot of embellishment or extravagances on the exterior but rich and vibrant and incredibly fulfilling.
If you’re using Vanilla as a synonym for boring, you’re using it wrong. Vanilla is anything but boring. For me, vanilla is kinda perfect.
Coffee-mate is on a mission to take back vanilla and remind every one just how awesome it really is. Their new liquid creamer, Classic Vanilla, is delicious. If you thought vanilla was plain, I bet you didn’t know it has over 170 notes. How’s that for simple?
There’s vanilla in everyone. The next time someone calls you vanilla, take it as a compliment.
Vanilla is familiar and calming but it’s also upbeat and exciting. And now you can have both.
Do you love Classic Vanilla too? Snap a photo of your own vanilla moment and share it with the hashtag #TakeBackVanilla (on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram) for a chance to have your photo featured on Coffee-mate’s social channels.
