Coffee, to me, is certainly a way of life. In the morning I stumble through the house getting my son ready for school, my daughter fed, and other various tasks. I am not myself until I fill the coffee pot and that scent wanders throughout the house. You know what scent I am talking about… the best scent EVER! Immediately my state of mind changes and I begin my #CoffeeJourney.
There is something about coffee that just perfects the world while you have that warm mug in your hands. I usually go and sit on my back porch and enjoy the fresh air in the morning. Sometimes my daughter is with me, sometimes she is napping, and on the weekends my husband joined me—but it is ALWAYS peaceful. On the mornings I am sitting out back by myself I am usually with a pen and a notebook because that is when my best ideas happen. I also sometimes have my MacBook too and scroll through my favorite sites, like Pinterest, to get inspiration.
I have been realizing more clearly in the last month or two that you have to stop and smell the roses. My coffee cup reads “The Bonds We Have Are Everlasting” and I really feel like those words on a coffee cup are so fitting. Coffee allows us to slow down and connect with people. I can remember being a little girl and I would wake up and the house was quiet but smelled delicious and I would walk into the kitchen nook and my parents were always sitting there talking, laughing and enjoying themselves over cups of coffee.
I recently upgraded my coffee pot. It has been FOREVER since I actually bought a new one and WOW! The options have really exploded. I went to Walmart and picked up Millstone® coffee and a Mr. Coffee® Optimal Brew™ coffee pot. And… I bought two! The best coffee maker out there is Mr. Coffee®, when we purchase a drip coffee maker it has always been one of theirs! I really love flavored coffee and Millstone® has great a ton of great options!
I love how the new brewer looks very modern and matches all of my appliances. I really hate having a cluttered counter but when it blends in I don’t mind that. Appearance is everything, right? Speaking of appearances, Millstone® just changed their packaging and I really like it!
This morning I was brewing my morning cup and my daughter was in the background being her usual mess of a self. She has been dropping things intentionally and saying “uh oh”! She is only 11 months old and I am so thankful that she knows what “uh oh” means but she never stops! haha This morning’s #coffeejourney will definitely be a welcomed one!
You may have noticed me mentioning I purchased two! I am giving away a package of Millstone® coffee and a Mr. Coffee® Optimal Brew™ coffee pot! It is open for the US only and all of the information will be in the Rafflecopter widget! Have fun and tell me about your #CoffeeJourneys in the comments!
