It was December 1995 and my first Christmas with Janna. The year had been wonderful and our relationship was getting stronger and more serious. I had a strong feeling that this was going to be the woman I would spend the rest of my life with. One of our favourite things to do, was to go to a coffee shop and just chat. I would get an espresso and she would get a latte. We would enjoy our drinks and the time spent together. I will never forget the Christmas gift J gave me. This was the first gift she ever gave me and it was a Braun espresso machine. I loved it not only because I love espresso, but also because it was a reminder of those great times hanging out at coffee houses.
Fast forward to 2016 and this coming August will mark our 20th wedding anniversary. It is hard to believe that we have been married for 20 years. Our marriage is as strong as ever and that espresso maker by Braun is still working. I am quite impressed as it has had a heavy workload throughout the years. Early in our marriage, I remember having friends over and making cappuccinos, lattes and espressos for people. Even today, I still use it to make myself an espresso. Lasting for more than 20 years shows that Braun makes quality kitchen products.
Braun is back in North America, with a new line of kitchen small appliances. These, just like my Braun espresso machine from 1995, are beautifully designed and reliable products that have been created to make food preparation simpler and more intuitive. There is a number of new products that Braun is making for the kitchen and they work as great as they look.
This weekend is Father’s Day and it is one of my favourite days of the year. It is a day when I reflect on all the blessings I have in my life with my family being one of the greatest blessing of all! My wife and three kids make me one of the happiest men on the planet. On Father’s Day, I enjoy spending the day with my family. There does not need to be any big activities. Instead, I prefer to sit on the couch hanging with my clan, playing a board game around the dining room table, playing catch in the backyard, or going for a walk in the neighbourhood. Me with my family – now that is an ideal Father’s Day.
This Father’s Day, I plan to spend time with my wife and kids and instead of being at a coffee house, like we did years ago, I will be hanging out in the house sipping a cup of java freshly brewed using the new Braun BrewSense Drip Coffee Maker. We might sit around the tv playing some XBOX. If the weather is nice, there is a good chance we will hang out on the deck. Whatever we do, life is great when I am with my wife and kids…. and the dog too!
