This week was the opening of the new Teavana store in University Village and boy am I happy about this newest addition! Not only is it lovely tea that just smells incredible when you step into the room… but, Starbucks expanded my menu yet again with this stores opening!
I first of all had to try the Butternut Squash salad (add bacon) because, um BACON!!!! I haven’t had bacon bits all year?! I wanted to order a bowl of just bacon alone… but I refrained because the store wouldn’t have anymore for anybody else!
I’m a photojournalist at heart! I adore the ability to tell a story with one great image, a hashtag or two and let it live in the world through social media. Both my accounts have many of the Starbucks stores, partners or customers on them including all those that I’ve regularly spoken to and am very grateful for during this challenge year…
I adore and utilize these sites so much that next years challenge will be REALLY be focused off of these two platforms. Since a large part of next years challenge entails tracking my years challenge & brand in many, many areas of Washington state, the PNW and the world… so showcasing all of that means TONS of photos!
For all my current followers, thank you so much for all you’ve brought to this years challenge… Your lives through your photos have been educational, informative, funny and down right inspirational! I hope you all will enjoy the beauty of our wonderful Mother Earth with me in 2014… and maybe tag me in some Starbucks selfies of you now and then just for old times sake!
