If you know me at all, even on a social media level, you would know very quickly that one of my biggest interests is coffee. I just love the glorious, energy gifting brown liquid. I love the education and science behind it; the different brewing methods, the roasting process, why it has the tasting notes it does, and watching the sipper begin to appreciate WHY I am as passionate as I am.

Jesse Christiansen is a singer-songwriter who hails from a small town in north-central Maryland. He is passionate about music, “bad” puns (he doesn’t think they’re bad…), and good coffee. Jesse believes in the power of transparency and honesty, which is evident in his lifestyle and song lyrics. You will most likely find him sharing in deep conversations with close friends over a quality cup of coffee and a massive blueberry muffin. Over the past few years, Jesse Christiansen’s music career has taken him all over the US and parts of Europe. (His lady, Karlie Pickett, created a mini-documentary of his fall 2016 tour that was published/sponsored by Schwinn)
Jesse loves to be outside in the fresh air; he looks forward to when his car is in the shop because that forces him to slow down and ride his bike. A favorite tradition of his is going on a bike trip in the fall in the Appalachian Mountains–camping along the Potomac River and biking the C&O Canal with some of his closest friends.
Jesse’s outlook on life is one of freedom and pursuit. Fueled by his faith and love of people, learning, and adventure, there will always be something exciting up his sleeve.

Of course I have made efforts to suppress my anxiety, most of which have been successful, thank the Lord. And for the record, acupuncture is a dream. I moved from a house in the woods on … [Read more...]
