Welcome to the Ultimate Coffee Date Link Up, where we imagine that we are getting together for coffee (or tea, or your favorite relaxing beverage), and share what’s going on in our lives. It’s a chance to get to know each other better and support each other in all our endeavors. Since it’s no fun to have coffee alone, make sure you leave comments on other blogs in the link up, and don’t forget to visit my co-host Deborah at Confessions Of A Mother Runner.
We’d love for you to use our new badge in your coffee date posts–

Drinking Coffee On Summer Vacation
As you’re reading this, I am getting ready to take my summer vacation! This is a big deal because we didn’t take a vacation last summer–we weren’t sure how long Tiger Lilly would be with us–and because we are visiting my son in Europe!
Enjoying a parfait in Speyer, Germany
This also is a big deal because I have not planned out our itinerary, other than booking our flights and hotel rooms. I usually am a type-A planner, but for this trip I’m happy to let my son decide where we go and what we see. That said, I’m sure I’ll be up before he is–even with jet lag–and will have to find coffee on my own.
So, for today’s coffee date I’m going to tell you about the other times I had coffee in Europe–I don’t always go to Starbucks!
The last time I was in Brussels, we got coffee at the train station the morning we arrived. Even there they served a small piece of dark chocolate with the coffee!
The fanciest coffee service I had in Europe was at a cafe in Switzerland–again with the piece of chocolate!
When my European clients visit me, they always order a “flat white” so I tried one myself in Copenhagen.
If we were having coffee, I’d ask if you have plans for a summer vacation. I’d also ask if you still look forward to a good cup of coffee even when it’s hot outside?
