#39: The Aroma of Coffee

Reason to Be Happy #39:
The Aroma of Coffee

Even if you don't like the taste, the aroma of coffee is a heavenly thing. In the beautiful play Our Town, dead Emily lovingly says goodbye to all the simple pleasures on earth she will never savor again—and it's worth noting "the smell of coffee" makes her list.*

*Okay, I just looked up Emily's "Goodbye, world" speech. She says goodbye to coffee. Just coffee in general. But I like to believe it's the aroma she's thinking of when she says it.

  1. A local coffee seller used to sell "coffee sachets" you could tuck into your drawers. I hung mine in my car, and it smelled awesome until eventually the scent wore off.

    One of the first signs I was pregnant with my 5th baby? That sachet started smelling like coffee again! LOL. :-)

    Thanks for sharing this.
