Hello friends! It’s time again for another ‘Foto der Woche‘ and here’s something that really made me happy this week and therefore is my Glücklichmacher #48:
Rain! (taken December 3, 2014)
It’s finally, finally raining more here in California and besides the fact that we really, really need the rain (even though sadly, this one single storm will hardly make a dent into the water deficit of our state), I love the rain for the fact alone that it makes it feel a little bit more like Christmas around here. I have long let go of the wishful thinking that I’ll ever have a white Christmas here (I have to go up into the mountains for that, which are luckily not too far away!) but the rain and cold weather definitely help putting me into the Christmas mood!
Hello friends! It’s time again for another ‘Foto der Woche‘ and even though this might be no photographic master piece, this is undoubtedly my Glücklichmacher #47:
Trader Joe’s Gingerbread Coffee (taken November 25, 2014)
I can’t tell you how excited I was when I finally (!) spotted my beloved Gingerbread coffee in the coffee aisle at Trader Joe’s this week. They only have it during the holiday season (which, I admit, makes sense, although I wouldn’t mind having access to this all year round!) and I had been impatiently waiting for it to show up on the shelves. I was temporarily scared that they had discontinued it or something, but had let a Trader Joe’s employee reassure me a couple of weeks ago that it was indeed coming to the stores soon!
If you haven’t tried it, you need to get your hands on this! I promise, it won’t disappoint…. in fact, don’t blame me, if you become slightly addicted. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
