It’s National Coffee Day!

They say America runs on Dunkin – or they did in 20o6 when the formerly known ‘Dunkin Donuts’ launched a nationwide campaign supporting American people as they work tirelessly to keep up with their demanding lives.

Well, America runs on much more than Dunkin these days! It runs on Starbucks, Heavenly Donuts, Tim Hortons, Au Bon Pain, and independent coffeehouses around our country – and our world. People have their favorites, and some loyalists are steadfast and staunch. There is no budging when it comes to where they get their coffee, or how they take it.

So today, as you sip your favorite brew, take a moment and celebrate coffee. The aroma that fills the house. The extra bounce it puts in your step. And the undeniably good feeling it gives us when we have that first sip.

And for all my fellow Autumn lovers, it’s pumpkin spice time! We’ve been waiting all year just for this moment.

Happy National Coffee Day!
