My mother asked me to bring her a latte, grandé size with vanilla and almond milk. She recently discovered her fondness of Starbucks lattes after living in the United States for nearly 50 years.

The unofficial first day of summer has arrived! Although, if you live in Houston, Texas, like I do, summer never really left! 

Now I hate to bring up the recent tax season, after a lovely Memorial Day weekend of chillin' and pool fun, however, we need to chat.
