If We Were Having Coffee… On April 4

Hello my lovelies!

It’s great to see all of you again for another Weekend Coffee Share!

Come on in, coffee is ready. And really, just for future reference, I’ll  show you around what I like to call “kiwi-style.”

See my kitchen? Well, there’s a coffee machine and a kettle. Coffee powder and filters are next to the machine. Teas, sugar and honey are on the shelf. Milk is in the fridge and glasses, cups and mugs are in the hanging cupboard. The tap water here is some of the best in all of Germany and definitely drinkable.

This indie flick is billed as a romantic comedy, but don’t let that genre scare you away. It’s a film about growing up, accepting that you deserve happiness the way you are and being grateful.

Happythankyoumoreplease is a great directorial and screenwriting debut for Josh Radnor (Ted Mosby on How I Met Your Mother), who stars as Sam Wexler in this heartfelt and observant 2011 film, which won the Sundance Audience Award.
