Every morning, Kaiden has a set of chores she does to

pay for her room and board

earn a little money each week.  She has to make her bed, open up the blinds downstairs, carry the trash to the curb on Tuesday and Friday mornings and last but not least, as I am finishing up upstairs, she hits the brew button on the Keurig and makes me my morning cup of coffee in a to-go cup.  She makes a GREAT cup of coffee, but better than that, she always takes it one step further and pulls out the Sharpie marker and writes me a sweet little message on my cup.

Her coffee with her sweet little messages and pictures of hearts all over the cup… that always rubs off and leaves my hands black after drinking my coffee, is better than any Starbucks coffee could ever be.
