What June Taught Me.

Share This Post With Your Friends!

  1. Such a good idea! I use vanilla almond milk creamer and I think it has 4-5g for a tbsp, when I get iced coffee out now I have it with just milk so I know I like it without the added sugar– it's just so good!

  2. I'm right there with you on the creamer. I thought I'd hate coffee without vanilla creamer but I've been trying vanilla almond milk and it's not quite the same but I'm dealing. I'm going to have to try your way though!

  3. Mmmm I'm going to have to get that creamer recipe from you. I'm a flavored creamer junkie so I definitely need to break that habit. Ha!

    Almond milk in coffee is my JAM! Now caramel syrup in my coffee is also my jam, but sugar. And being old. And metabolisms. And stuff.

    Reading your meaningful, lovely posts definitely brightens up my days so I'll count that as the good in my days šŸ™‚

  5. Ohhh you're so good for switching creamer out! I use Coffee Mate's Natural Bliss because it's at least "real" ingredients… But I'm right there with you on the "no one puts just one teaspoon in their coffee" kind of thing… Too much added sugar is definitely a problem I need to work on fixing!

  6. I broke up with the International Delights stuff a long time ago. Now if I do buy the creamer, it's the Natural Bliss since it's actual milk instead of oil.

  7. I love the line about celebrating in spite of life!

  8. What a great idea for a creamer that I can make at home! Thank you so much for the idea!

  9. That creamer sounds delicious. I feel like the blog-world is full of good vibes today. I'm glad you're finding the positive in every day. I think that's the only way to get through life with a little sanity šŸ™‚

  10. I started making my own creamer this month too! I read the ingredients and saw Polysorbate 80 and was like K I'm good. Mine is milk, cream, vanilla and honey. I'll need to try yours out.

  11. Meghan says:

    That creamer sounds delicious, yay for finding the good in everyday, I love being able to do that!

  12. I LOVE that you made your own creamer- how brilliant is that?! and yes, there IS good in everyday- even if some days it's hard to see it.

  13. That sounds like an amazing switch that you made! Proud of you!

  14. Jenn S. says:

    Love these simple, but necessary lessons! Except the creamer – that might be hard for me to give up šŸ˜‰ But celebrating no matter what and finding the good in every situation – so, so true. I'm learning that more as a mama than ever before.

  15. yoooooo lemme get that creamer recipe! haha i definitely need to cut back on the sugar as well

  16. YES! I couldn't agree more about finding happiness every single day. It doesn't have to be all day, but there usually is a little daily light to make you happy.

  17. ooooh, I want that creamer recipe girl! I could use that!

  18. Of course I read about your healthy creamer the day after I buy creamer for the first time ever because I've convinced myself I deserve a little (sweet) treat in my coffee. UGH. šŸ˜‰

  19. Becca says:

    Oh, man, that does sound like it'd be a rough week. But it's so great you were able to find, and concentrate on, the good things!

  20. Julia Bluhm says:

    This is a lovely post. You are completely right- there is good in every day, sometimes it just takes a bit to find it.
    For me, June has been a month of trying to be shamelessly myself. (Harder than it seems, ahah)
    Love your blog!

  21. Girl, I am right there with you with the coffee creamer! I just found your blog for the first time, and absolutely loved reading about the good things in your month. Lovely post!

  22. BLovedBoston says:

    The creamer you made sounds delicious! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  23. I need to try your homemade creamer! I'm guilty of the same thing.

  24. I don't do flavored creamer, but I definitely use cream.

  25. Kait says:

    I'm totally going to try that creamer hack! I love cream in my coffee, but I've gone without it cold turkey for nearly 3 months now. Though admittedly, if I'm treating myself out at a coffee shop I add half and half.

  26. Hannah says:

    I love flavored creamer too! I had to give it up/find an alternative about a year ago when I had to give up dairy. I tried making my own, but nothing worked for me. I finally found an almond milk creamer that has substantially less calories and sugar than the one I had been using. The other day I got a drink from Starbucks and holy moly, it was so stinking sweet! I'm loving my almond creamer and am so glad I found it!

  27. Crystal says:

    I would love your recipe for creamer. I stopped using the flavored stuff awhile ago because of all the creamer and I started using coconut milk coffee creamer. I tried an almond milk one and didn't like how that mixed with coffee at all. I also use actual coconut cream sometimes… like from the can. Anyway, I like flavored creamer, though, but I really don't like the flavored coconut milk creamer. It's way to sweet and just… gross. So I'd love to know how you make flavored creamer with coconut milk because that sounds like something I'd love. šŸ™‚

    And that was a long, rambly comment. Sorry about that! šŸ™‚
