#THROWBACKTHURSDAY #IstillRemember

Last Thursday I did a "throw back" pic to the previous week when I was in Guatemala.  If you missed it you can read it HERE... (You've got to see the adorable little boy in the video at the end! ) In that blog post I shared about getting to talk about my time in Guatemala with my Amplify Church family.  I loved that we had all the children stay in service with us that day.  We put together a sheet with information about my trip and gave it to them along with some crayons.

I LOVE it when this happens!

So most of you know I got a thing for coffee... I LOVE coffee shops and of course my local Starbucks (local meaning the one I am closest to at that moment.)

So I LOVE WHEN THIS HAPPENS!!!  I walk into my local Starbucks just days after committing to the Baby Rescue project in Guatemala and what do I see... Seriously?!? ... the featured coffee has notes of LEMON and DARK CHOCOLATE (which got my attention) AND it's grown in GUATEMALA!!! I...
