I was getting coffee out of the cabinet a couple days ago and at the back of our coffee cabinet sat our coffee grinder. I have gotten lazy and we haven't had freshly ground coffee in a long time!
My memories went back to the occasion in the fall of 1996 when we bought that coffee grinder. We were in Pensacola, Florida not long after Johanna and Bryan's wedding. It was the first vacation with my adult siblings. Jeremy and Loretta, Johanna and Bryan and David and I rented a three bedroom condo and spent a week together in Pensacola.
All of us love coffee so we splurged and bought beans and a grinder. I was remembering other pictures from this trip. After digging through boxes in the basement I found the appropriate scrapbook, these were the only ones I found of us. I must have seen some of Loretta or Johanna's pictures because I do remember a picture on the beach with people in it but that one isn't in my collection.
Oh..and we drank freshly ground coffee!
