Last night, as I sat in Starbucks brainstorming on content for today, my friend, Morgan suggested I share what I order at Starbucks. As someone who is not even a big fan of coffee and is merely a social coffee drinker, this seemed brilliant. So, I give you my top three drinks at Starbucks:
Caramel Apple Spice
This is basically fancy apple cider. It has no caffeine in it, so it is nice for when I don’t need the added energy.
Iced Blonde Vanilla Latte
This is my go-to year round! It helps when I am running low on sleep [or blood ;)] I always get it iced, even in the winter. This is the closest that I get to drinking coffee, but it has milk and vanilla syrup in it, so it isn’t exactly considered coffee.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
I wouldn’t be a basic white girl if I didn’t love the Pumpkin Spice Latte. While it is only seasonal, it still makes my top three. I start drinking it in August and usually keep ordering it until December. While it is still warm (read: the entire season) I order it iced.

I rarely share the nitty gritty about treatment, but today is different. With every type of treatment I have done, I have been able to talk to someone who had done it before. When I started this treatment of DLIs, that changed. I still do not personally know anyone who has done this. To have been able to have talked to someone when I was first started would have immensely helped my mental health. My hope is that by documenting this while it is all still so fresh, is that someone, somewhere, one day, will benefit from my experiences. … Read More Donor Lymphocyte Infusions
