I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be heading to Chicago for the very first time next week!
I’ll be attending the annual BlogHer 2013 Conference where you will find me representing Folgers Black Silk Coffee in the Folgers’ Recharge Lounge. If you are heading to BlogHer, be sure to come find me (Details below)!!!
You know the jingle, right?
“The best part of waking up, is Folgers in your cup”
I think I was singing that song around the same time I learned “The Itsy Bitsy Spider”. 🙂
I grew up with Folgers Coffee. Not that my parents were serving me coffee as a child (I didn’t actually drink coffee until studying for college final exams), but Folgers was the only brand my dad had in the kitchen. And oh, the aroma! I fell in love first with the smell of coffee……then later, the taste.
About Folgers Black Silk
True to its name, Black Silk coffee brings to life the robust flavors of the morning and leaves behind the smoothest of tastes. Wake up to a bold, yet exceptionally smooth blend with a subtle smoky note. Black Silk coffee is just what fans of dark-roasted coffees are looking for, and it’s the perfect coffee to make true believers out of non-bold drinkers.
Folgers Black Silk Coffee is certainly Bold, a trait which Folgers thinks I share.
When I think about myself, my qualities, I think of many things……and yes, Bold is one of them.
I looked up the definition of Bold and saw words like “Adventurous”, “Courageous”, and “Resolute”.
- Though treacherous at times, I’ve hiked to the top of a rainforest and climbed an ancient pyramid
- I love experiencing new cultures….their foods, their traditions, and hidden treasures off the beaten path.
- I am a fearless advocate…..for my child, for those people others might not “see”, and for breast cancer research (after losing my mom).
- I’ve taken the road less traveled and left a successful career to be a stay at home mom, yet one with bold goals, dreams, and blogging.
Be Bold and introduce yourself to me at BlogHer!
Folgers’ ReCharge Lounge at BlogHer ’13 Conference #FolgersLounge
