Blessing Bags for Police Officers

The best part of waking up each morning is my children piling into our bed as Folgers fills the air. Their sweet voices and tendency to put their appendages in strange places is an affinity I aspire to have. I sit in bed each morning, and I count my blessings. It is the way I start my morning with purpose. It is the mantra I have for my life.Continue reading

The Secret To The Best Part of Waking Up

School has arrived in our house like an unwanted houseguest. The hustle and bustle of the children getting ready for school echoes through the thin walls our home. The groans of “Why do we have to get up so early? Are met with hurry up and get going.’ The scavenger hunt for the missing item of clothes that need to be worn today or the fashion emergency will erupt into a full blown melt down complete with a stream of tears has begun. The packing of lunches, military style breakfast delivery, and then my dash to line up the backpacks against the walls with their owner’s shoes neatly beside has commenced.

Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend

I am so overwhelmed with their new schedule and my additional responsibilities. I am in need of my morning cup of coffee before their alarms buzz. The new Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend stands up to the haphazard way I add my sugar and cream. It doesn’t matter with this new formula it will overcome my measuring deficit, and its bold, strong coffee flavor will stand up no matter what method of preparation you employ. I am going with the dump and scoop approach which is usually successful until someone yells, “MOM!” and I forget how much I scooped or dumped.Continue reading

Folgers Coffee Bar

When I think back to my childhood one of the things I remember is the smell of Folgers® filling our house. I think back to the fireplace, friends, and family. I decided that with modern technology wouldn’t it be great to create a retreat in my home? I love having people come over. I want them to return often so I make sure they feel special by creating an experience they will remember. I decided to create a self-serve Folgers’ station. It is so easy to set up a self-serve Folgers Coffee Bar. This way they can have their coffee how they like it and as often as they like it. It is always hard to tell how many cups people require, so making a station seems like a great way to help them feel like they are at home.Continue reading

It is now my time. You know the time of day that you make something special for yourself, and you sit back and enjoy the memories. You know life is about memories. Continue reading
