Friday Follow Up – Grateful for Winter
Evolution Fresh hot apple juice too….
And even MORE hot Tazo (Earl Grey) tea!
With the Seattle weather being the typical rainy and windy mess it is in winter, no wonder we are the home of HOT GOODNESS like coffee & tea from Starbucks!
Speaking of Winter… at the beginning of this year, shortly after meeting Christine Hall online, another Starbucks “insider” introduced himself to me online, Winter. I’m pretty sure most everybody that reads this blog knows Winter and his challenge to visit every Starbucks store around the world (termed “Starbucking” in his documentary). Winter has been taking this challenge on since 1997 and you can read all about it on his website Starbucks Everywhere.
Luckily, this year I also had the pleasure of meeting Winter in person a couple of times since he was on a contract position in Portland, OR for awhile. We first met at a favorite place of mine here in Seattle… Roy Street Coffee & Tea.
Not only has Winter been a great inspiration for my Starbucks year-long challenge, sending me photos of places he has been (especially of the foods which are very different Internationally!), keeping me in the loop about Starbucks interests he has found, but he has been a good online friend that I hope will stay in touch with my future challenges…No matter what, as long as Starbucks stores are still opening around the world, you will have plenty to follow with Winter’s challenge.
I am grateful to have met and to now know Winter and his amazing dedications in life!
Red cups are here…. and so is Winter. Let the holidays commence.by
