For the Love of Coffee…DIY

Since I can remember, my love for coffee has always been there. I guess my Colombian roots have never been lost you could say.  I started drinking coffee (and black!) since I was probably 5 years old… When I would come home from school in Colombia my grandmother always had black coffee and Colombian bread waiting for me! Yum! (oh, the memories!) well… my point? This love I hold..  will always be there! And well I guess now being older than 5, going through nursing school and ending up with a cuban boyfriend.. I guess now, it has become an addiction. Ha! and addiction I’m quite okay with.. and Love!  For the Love of Coffee

My boyfriend and I recently moved to an apartment. Decorating has been tons of fun!.. and a lot of ideas have been flying through this busy head of mine. I think its safe to say, not only am i addicted to coffee but my fellow friend Pinterest!  And it just so happened that while on Pinterest… I came across this coffee station idea! It was love at first sight and “must have” in our new apartment!

So, off i went to start picking up things for my little coffee station! After multiple trips and much looking and little spending ( we’re on a budget here! everything we got was either on sale or pretty inexpensive) I had the things to put this little project together and to make it my own. The coffee station is finally complete and being used daily..I couldn’t be more excited to share my photos with you and the final product! Sit back, grab a cup of coffee and Enjoy!

First Step: Finding a table, a place to hang my coffee cups, and decorations. (the fun part!)

 

Second Step: Painting My table! ( I wanted a rustic, white feel to it) I used some left over paint with primer,since there was no need to sand down my table. Worked like a charm!

Final Step: Put it all together!

The Finished product and my favorite little area in our home!

I love you Coffee. That is all.

An Engagement in Style

This past saturday, my honey and I had the pleasure of attending a celebration unlike any we had surely attended.. It was full of colors, traditions, meaning, family and most important LOVE! My boyfriend and I met Anita (the beautiful bride to be, below in our pictures) during nursing school.. we were literally the three stooges! This is why it was such an honor and meant so much for us to be able to experience such an amazing day for her and her fiancé! It was a beautiful day and the celebration spirit was definitely in the air. It was not only exciting for us to be able to attend but also to learn about their different traditions and beliefs. If this was only the engagement ceremony, I cannot wait to attend their wedding day! Im sure it will be more than beautiful! Here are some pictures we took of our friends day! Enjoy.

Tumesh & Anita

Anita and Tumesh, may this be the beginning of a beautiful and loving relationship! We we wish you all the blessings in the world!

yours truly,

P.S.. Anita was my boyfriend and I’s Cupid! ;P
