Snail Mail Awesomeness

Personal

On Saturday I got the best smelling and package a coffee addict could ask for arrived in my mailbox! I seriously smelled it a ton before opening it, then shoved it in Justin’s face so he could smell the awesomeness of it. When I opened it up, I was even more overjoyed with the simple but wonderful packaging. I was giddy like a school girl in a candy store when Jake from Valo Photography emailed me and asked me to try out his roasted coffee beans.  I got even more excited when he sent me a snap on Snapchat that he mailed it! I ran to the mailbox after returning from 2nd shooting in Wausau, and when I opened the door the waft of delicious coffee was a heart warmer. I waited till yesterday to open it because I wanted to take photos of the packaging and everything. When I finally got to grind the beans and brew it, I skipped to the stove and waited by the stove while the peculator did it’s magic. I made each Justin and I a small cup of fresh brewed coffee mixed with a little homemade maple syrup and almond milk – this wonderful l combination made for a delicious cup of coffee! The beans were a little darker than we like it, but it is still delicious brewed with a peculator. Today we are brewing it in the coffee make to try and see how that effects the flavor. Jake’s favorite way to have coffee is something I have yet to add to my brewing collection – pour over! Trust me it is my next investment! Overall the coffee was smooth with just a little bitterness and hint of bourbon added sweetness that I would call a delicious cup of joe!

Why do I love coffee so much you may ask? It’s not just because it gives me energy to get through the day – but it’s like a warm hug to warm the soul. I instantly fill bliss when the hot deliciousness hits my stomach – I know at that moment that I can conquer the world. That is a lot of power in one little mug isn’t it!? Well, my mug isn’t so tiny – it’s like 2-3 cups of Joe. I even traveled to multiple stores to find the coffee maker I wanted – the insulated kraft and not the glass one so my coffee didn’t burn. Every morning Justin or I freshly grind our beans and  place cold water into the coffee maker and wait for that joy in a cup each morning.

This was a coffee lovers dream – to have fresh home roasted beans delivered to her door to taste test! Be still my heart! Keep your eyes open for more coffee news!

Happy Wednesday – may that extra cup of coffee you needed after too much Cinco de Mayo celebrating last night be delicious!

With Love – Christine

Social Break / Natural Intuition Photography – Stevens Point Wisconsin
It's been a little quiet around here, and I am really sorry about that. I am taking a Social Media break ( at least for my business ). I am working on some not so fun business things, and some AWESOME business things! I am making the most out of 2014 so far, and working on some goodies for my clients, new and old! I am SUPER excited, and cannot wait to show you all when it is all finished! In the past few years I have been dabbling in designing my own packaging, and I just wasn't so happy about it, so part of this break is getting it to where I want it to be. I am also, getting ahead of myself so I can actually enjoy this summer. Last summer ...

2013 – What an Amazing Year it’s Been !
It's this time of year that we sit back and look at the adventures and challenges life threw at you this past year. 2013 was nothing different! 2013 brought, great people, great memories, and wonderful times! It was full of new things! New website, new blog, new investments - and challenges that I may say I KICKED ass! Owning your own business is not all fun and games - I have learned more about taxes, branding, marketing and so on. But most of all I have learned how to connect with the people I meet and photograph more. To get them the most out of their experience with me - we become friends! Those challenges I have mentioned come e ...

Tetons National Park & Yellowstone National Park
Yellowstone National Park & Tetons National Park | the Ultimate Vacation Tetons National Park is one of my favorites in the US that I have been to. I knew I wanted to show Justin just how beautiful it was, so I planned a 2-week vacation to see Tetons AND Yellowstone National Park. We camped, drank beer by the fire and hiked a mountain. When we left our campsite at Yellowstone we just missed the fire that closed the road between the parks. It was crazy hearing about all the fires surrounding us. The light the smoke made was simply beautiful though! Along the way we traveled unplugged it was simply amazing! Atlas in hand we made our w ...
