Thanks to Coffee

So this is my first time using Blogger since probably 2006... did I just age myself? Shut up haha.

I'm not quite sure how to use this platform, so bear with me while my blog looks like crap. I'm figuring it all out again. I blog over on Down Rainy Lane too, but I really needed a personal spot - a retreat, an oasis, a mental spa - where I can truly type out my feelings and post pictures and all that good stuff without intruding on DRL's brand. I love coffee, so that's why it's called Thanks to Coffee.

This blog will be beauty, lifestyle, and photography based! I refuse to choose a particular niche because I did that with DRL and so I have to be very specific over there, but here I can just say what I'm feeling! No schedules, no deadlines, nothing.

I hope you're more ready for 2016 than I am....I'm definitely dragging my feet. I don't want to admit that another year passed without me accomplishing ANY of my dreams. Just to be clear, my dreams include traveling to Europe, starting a small coffee cart on a street corner, and taking jumping lessons on horseback. It's a hefty list - let's hope I can make them HAPPEN in 2016!

Here's to the New Year, and here's to a great blog.


  1. Love the mug! Welcome to blogging! Excited to see what you post in the future!

  2. Welcoming to the blogging world, Allie! I am a newbie blogger too and I know the feeling, but having been doing this for a for weeks now I can honestly say that I am totally enjoying the experience and you will too! And oh-Alaska, such a beautiful place!! :)
    Looking forward to your posts.

    1. I love blogging! :) I've actually been blogging for about 12 years now, but this is the first time I've used Blogger in SO LONG. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I keep getting an error message when I try to publish a post, so this might not be the best experience with Blogger :/ We'll see! I'm gonna go check out your blog!

  3. Welcome to Blogger. We all have a unique voice and beautiful words to share with others, and that's what makes each blog so incredibly unique. I love your openness for your blog being about almost anything. I hope your year is dreamy and fantastic. I am excited for 2016. Cheers!

  4. Thanks so much for dropping in and leaving a thoughtful comment, Aarika! I really appreciate it! I hope your year is dreamy and fantastic too!! <3
