Confession - I don't drink coffee or tea on a regular basis. But I can certainly appreciate their greatness, especially on a brisk, early, Autumn morning, or a cold, winter snow-day. I guess you could say I'm more of a seasonal drinker... :) But, in an effort to enjoy more coffee at home, we did just buy our first coffee maker last December... right before I found out I was pregnant. So that effort has been on hold for 9 months. I'm sure, soon enough (baby should be here soon!), I will be downing the coffee with the best of 'em.
Anyway, as I thought about the perfect coffee/tea break, what kept coming to mind is the one time of year that I always look forward to having a cup - Christmas morning. I'm a Christmas fanatic - that's downplaying it, but there are no words to convey my insane excitement for this holiday. Usually on Christmas morning, I'm at my grandparent's house, and a cup of coffee, which always tastes better when brewed by my Grandma, is the perfect way to start off the best day of the year.
This design is called "Cup of Cheer", and I'm now officially ready to pull out the Christmas music... (Oh, who am I kidding? They never get put away) and my ideal coffee is enjoyed in the quiet, too-early hours of Christmas morning, surrounded by the colors of gift wrap, the smell of pine, the glow of twinkling lights, the warmth of a wood stove, and a happy family.
So thanks, Creative Tuesdays, for a great theme this week! And readers, go check out all of the other fantastic ideas for coffee/tea breaks!
