Congratulations Mikaela and thank you for sharing Penellope Marie's birth story.

I understand all the arguments against Starbucks. And, I love me some mom-and-pop local shopping.

But here’s the deal — I also really like Starbucks. Sure, I’m not going get some ultra-inspiring experience at the green mermaid. But it offers a few things that make it invaluable in my world.

5. Free (or Cheap) Refills
6. Rewards Program
7. Dog-Friendly

Are you a fellow Starbucks lover? What would you add to my list?
