Hey friends! I need YOUR help!

As you well know, a piece of our heart will always be in Scotland. Shaun and I lived in Aberdeen for 3.5 years, two of our children were born there, and it homes many of our wonderful friends with whom we miss so dearly! One of those friends include this family….

chapins

Aren’t they just so beautiful?! What’s really beautiful is their heart for sharing Jesus in Scotland– “seeing lives transformed by the power of Jesus – giving the spiritually hungry an encounter with the living God. This ministry is only possible through partnership with you. By giving and praying, you’re serving alongside us in the work.” (Read more about their ministry here).

The Chapins are coming up on 3 years of ministering in Edinburgh! Our family has invested in their work for several years and we’d love to send a special gift of $5K to their ministry in a nation of less than 2% evangelical Christians.

Here’s the info:

All you have to do to is enter your name into a drawing for this basket when you make a donation of $5 for this ministry (see paypal donation button below). For every $5 we will put your name on the list…. so,  $10 we will put your name on twice… $25 five times… and so forth.  ON March 31st we will close the giveaway and then I will do a videotaped recording of the random choosing of one of the entries and will announce it on the blog and contact you through email or facebook.  Each donor will be sending their items your way to enjoy!!! [Note: items can only be shipped to the USA]

You can also get extra entries by sharing on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter after you’ve donated. Just comment on this post and let me know where you shared so I can count them!! (otherwise I won’t know you shared!!)

It’s easy as pie…

So without further ado….

I present my BEST OF COFFEE BASKET!!!

dsc_1005

Look at all these goodies!!! Eek! I’m giddy for you just looking at it!

First, check out the Nespresso ($100 value!)… this machine is pretty incredible. Envision yourself waking up from a rough night of slumber (I know nothing of this sleeplessness ;)—so hypothetically speaking) and wanting a refreshing latte, but you can’t get over to your local coffee brewery because you already have too many things on the schedule for the day. Insert Nespresso. Simply fill the resevoir with water, insert a pod of choice (decaf, caffeinated, flavors galore) and press whether you want an espresso or lungo. Within seconds you are enjoying some of the best coffee you’ve ever had. No offense to the Keurig, but it can’t even come close to touching the Nespresso. “Simple to use, the Nespresso Inissia offers an impeccable barista-style coffee every time, thanks to its simple, one-touch operation and patented extraction system which delivers up to 19 bar pressure.”

We were first acquainted with Nespresso in Scotland and soon enjoyed it back in the States as well. It is seriously going to change your life and I can’t wait for you to have one don the counter top of your kitchen. (Note: Inissia color may vary) Read more on this device here.

Next, let me just introduce you to the Breville Milk Frother  (a $120 value!)..

Some sweet friends, Alex and Erin Monasterio (Alex works for Breville, Erin is a precious friend, & their family loves Jesus) and donated this amazing piece of awesome. I know Nespresso technically has their own milk frother, but it ain’t got nothing on this beauty. Imagine yourself on a freeeezing cold snowy day, you want a hot mocha, but you can’t get out to the store to order one. Problem solved! Simply add your dark chocolate morsels into the breville with your choice of milk, set the desired temperature and BAM… foamy chocolatey froth to top your espresso. OR just pour the frothy goodness straight into cups and load on some whip cream for the best hot chocolate you’ve ever had. You can also experiment with other flavors/spices in the frother– a creation opportunity awaits you! Never mind trying to clean this joker on your own, the whole top portion easily slips into your dishwasher (other frothers you have to hand wash) and is easily sparkling for your next coffee moment!

It also comes with two different disc attachments– one for smooth and silky milk, another for rich, thick, creamy milk. Read more on this innovative device here.

Now how could I send you off with a machine and no coffee to sample?! Our good friends Guy and Brandy Spillers (Guy and Shaun have been friends since college– their wonderful family are fellow missions lovers and nespresso lovers too!) have donated not 10 pods, or even 50 pods but 120 pods for you to try out in your new machine! Bestpresso puts out a great sampler package that you are going to really have fun exploring!

And of course, after you make your first foaming latte, you may want to add a hint of flavor with my personal favorite– some handcrafted vanilla syrup.

I made this one myself (see the madagascar vanilla beans just luring in for your mouth watering attention?!). You will receive your own bottle from my sweet sweet friend Margaret (her family also lived in Scotland for several years with their children). I first received a bottle from her when she sent it to me as a christmas present. After I tasted the vanilla she made, I’ll never go back to the other stuff. Since she loves Jesus, Scotland, and [really tasty] vanilla– she said she’d be thrilled to donate a similar store bought version of this goodness to the winner (style/volume will vary from the bottle featured in the blogpost). I can’t wait for you to enjoy some!

And now, the keep cup …

dsc_0001

I am quite sure there will be days you just can’t drink your latte at home. And that’s ok because now you have a keep cup. This glass jar is going to make all your friends stop and ask where you were able to land such a practical and stylish cup. The glass frame and fancy cork sleeve combines to allow for a really sleek looking travel mug. “KeepCup is the world’s first barista standard reusable cup, designed for coffee lovers on the move. KeepCup is a practical commuter cup replicating the core form and functions of disposable cups, but adding reusability, recyclability and the opportunity to add your own individual flair. Clever – and environmentally kind.” (winner will receive a large keep cup, color may vary)

And for those times when you CAN drink your latte at home, I thought we would include a lovely anthropologie cup. My little anthropologie tea cup is featured here below, but that won’t do for you! You will need a bigger cup than this to get a rich foamy latte. SO…

YOU will get your OWN anthro cup! Nancy Ray (check out her team at Nancy Ray Photography!) has donated one of these lovely monogrammed cups for you to select which letter you would like to have pictured on your morning cup of joe. (Isn’t that cup gorgeous?!) Nancy and I went to school together, she loves Jesus, coffee, and certainly has an eye for beauty! I’m so excited that you get to share in this special gift from her.

Lastly, there will be days where you are on the move and can’t manage to return home to make a coffee. Insert a $10 whole foods gift card for your on the go needs! I personally suggest purchasing you and a friend a dark chocolate mocha with just a splash of vanilla and frothy whole milk. Or go grab a bag of local coffee (we suggest Back Alley or Counter Culture) with an Escazu sea salt chocolate bar for your dining in pleasure. Some days just need a whole foods ‘pick-me-up’ and now you get to be the recipient of such wonderfulness. 🙂
