I love warm beverages in the wintertime. There is nothing I like more than cozying up with a book and a cup of earl grey tea in the afternoon or drinking warm coffee in the morning.
I always make it a point to drink out of something beautiful. For me, this makes the act of drinking even more of a treat.
A bunch of years ago I was in a meeting and noticed that this very caustic woman had a black coffee mug that read "Coffee From Hell" with flames on it. What a surprise. This really spazzy guy had this HUGE green cup that you could take a swim in and most of the people had free vendor mugs. How much do you enjoy your drink in one of those I wondered???? I was struck by the fact that I was always the only person at a meeting actually using a nice cup.
For years I used a handmade mug that Jeannine made. I dropped it in from of another friend. When she saw how sad I was over it she purchased the lovely MacKenzie Childs mug pictured above as a gift for me.
Sometimes I use a Blue Willow Cup and Saucer I got at a garage sale or one of the rooster mugs that my mom got me for a gift one year. The cup doesn't have to be expensive for you to savor the experience. So think about what you drink your morning Joe in, I bet you can make it even better by paying attention to your cup.
And, If it's always a Starbuck's paper cup, then you're probably paying too much for your morning coffee!!!
