Mocha Puppy Chow

Raven Higheagle


I’m a big coffee drinker, and two things about it always make me crack a smile.
The smell–I love it. Maybe it’s because I’m a Texas girl and we have a Starbucks on every corner or maybe it just brings back cozy memories. Either way, I always linger when I pass by the coffee in the grocery store and I read all the snazzy flavors to myself in my head.
And the second thing? You’ve Got Mail, the movie, the Starbucks scene to be exact.
