What's Your Favorite...

What is your favorite memory??? That's our challenge at WhatIsYourFaveThing. There are so many to choose from... I thought since I'm always scrapbooking Rainee I would do a different favorite. A childhood memory - which I think about every {day}.

Ever since I can remember my dad has had a cup of coffee in his hand. Even now when we visited him last summer... he had a cup right next to him... and was waiting for his refill.

Besides us kids... who I know he loves dearly... his next favorite thing would have to be his coffee break. My dad loves loves loves his coffee breaks. There isn't a specific time of {day}... as a matter of fact... it's really an all day thing. He doesn't take it with any fancy trimmings... it's always black. And when all the fancy coffee companies started popping up on nearly every corner... he stayed true to his favorite cup of Folgers. He says they don't hold a candle to it... although on that he and I would have to disagree... I'm a Starbucks girl... through and through... if you think about it, it's kinda funny that I met my husband at a Starbucks... hmmmm... interesting??!!!

So now when I have my daily cup... I'm reminded of my dad's daily ritual... and I feel as though I'm sharing a cup with him. And I have to say... I do love love love my coffee breaks!!! Thanks dad!!! Thank you for such a wonderful pleasure...

Well, like I said I chose my dad as my favorite memory... but that doesn't mean I didn't do a layout with my little one... Rainee... how could anyone have just one favorite memory... And with Rainee... she gives me a new delightful memory every {day}... I hold on to them and cherish every one. I'm blessed. On this layout I decided to do hearts... because she holds my heart... and she is one of my favorite memories...

So, what is your favorite memory? Is it from your childhood? Or when your child was born? When you got married? Your grandparents? Or maybe a favorite toy? Whatever it is we would love to see it! Remember you can show it off on a card, a scrapbook layout or any kind of project you'd like... share it with all of us at WhatIsYourFaveThing... can't wait to see it. And you might just be the winner of a fabulous prize!!! Thanks so much for stopping by... Have a lovely day!!!
