Our love story is such a fun one!
We actually met because of my mother. She spotted you first and claims she immediately knew we would be a good fit. ‘What are you waiting for?’, she urged.
I was reluctant. After being severely burnt before, I was left with a really bad taste in my mouth and was not looking for anything new. I was straight up tired of dating.
To be honest, it was not love at first sight. I even later admitted that during our first date I found you to be a bit off putting – truthfully, I didn’t get what all the hype was about. Sure you were tall, dark and handsome, but not really my type. For one thing, you were a lot bolder than I was used to!
It wasn’t until later that day, after we had parted, that I began to get that warm feeling of butterflies. I honestly could not stop thinking about you. I was full blown giddy! That night you were still buzzing in my mind, and I decided I couldn’t wait to see you again.
Since then, we have been through so much. We’ve started businesses, travelled, bought homes and had the sweetest babies. You’ve been right by my side as I’ve lost, cried and rejoiced. This year in particular, you’ve held me up as only a soulmate could. You have made me more patient, self assured and kind. While I wouldn’t exactly say you ‘complete me’ you certainly have helped me become the best version of myself.
Sure, there have been some bumps along the way. We both can be quite complex, and you do have a habit of becoming bitter and despondent at times, some might even call you cold (and then you are awful to be around.) And I guess I can be needy and irritable (although I’d argue only when you aren’t close by). We even parted ways a few times in those early years – neither of us ready to fully commit, but when we were apart I felt like something was missing, and I quickly realized I wasn’t ready to give up on you.
You are everything I didn’t know I needed and I couldn’t imagine my life without you in it. I am so blessed to wake up every single day and you be the first thing I see. You continue to fill my cup and there is no one I would rather spend my life with. Dearest coffee, I love you.
P.S The MM Man is also pretty special (especially as he makes me coffee every single morning).
