I can taste the memories...

Do you have certain foods that bring back memories? Fried chicken- Grandma's house. A slightly under-baked chocolate chip cookie- an afternoon snack made by mom. A fresh croissant- the air in Paris. And a Mocha Coconut Frappuccino- the days over 7 years ago that Stephen brought me my favorite treat from Starbucks while at work. Before we were dating. Before I knew he would one day be my husband. I had a crush, but nothing more at that time. The fun thing is, they stopped making the Mocha Coconut Frappuccino after that year and just now are bringing it back! I went to Starbucks the other day with every intention of getting an iced mocha but when I saw that, I just about jumped out of my seat! The barista asked me as I pulled up to the window, "so you've had this before, huh?" I didn't give him my life story and the memories it brought back I just said, "yes! And I'm so glad I can have it again!"

I have fond memories w/ this drink as well!

The summer after Nathan and I started dating, when we were still in the "cutesy" phase, we exchanged emails almost daily about random things. In one lovey dovey email he sent me he told me I was the "coconut flakes on his mocha coconut frappachino". Haha! Cheesy? That's my man :)And I'll never forget it. Just happens to have been his favorite drink at the time too - and we both had one on Friday during "frappy hour" to reminisce.

I love food memories.
