Find Yourself-KEMOSABE Chocolate Hazelnut Flavored Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 4/9/2016

Today I decided to go to the park and relax then go food shopping, after all it was a glorious spring day, and I had worked hard all week. The fact that there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the forecast was for the temperature to soar to the low seventies made this a rare day living in Idaho Falls. By 9:30 AM I was dressed and ready to go to Central Park on Holmes Street not too far from where I lived on Cleveland Street. My first stop was the Penny Lane Café where I purchased a twenty-ounce container of my favorite flavored coffee, Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut. While I already had a spring “bounce” in my step, the aroma radiating from my container of chocolate hazelnut flavored coffee elevated my ‘bounce”.

After walking for ten minutes through the park to allow my chocolate hazelnut flavored coffee to cool off, I came upon a playground where a number of families were engaged in various fun-filled activities with their children. The site of a father pushing his daughter on a swing, a mother sitting on a bench tying her daughter’s sneaker and a young boy playing on the monkey bars made me literally stop, sit down on a nearby bench and take note of my life. “I’m twenty-nine years-old, have no steady boyfriend and all I do is work. Work, work, work. I need to find myself before life passes me by,” I murmured. For the next twenty minutes I sat on the bench sipping my chocolate hazelnut flavored coffee and watched as parents played with their children. I made a decision right then and there to change my life. I too wanted a family and I had better find myself pretty quick or life would pass me by.

To make a long story short, over the course of the spring and summer my life changed. I am now in a serious relationship with a fine young man, have cut back on the number of hours I work from 80 a week to 65 and have learned how to relax and enjoy myself. I owe it all to that day in the park where, sipping my chocolate hazelnut flavored coffee, I found myself.
