A Giveaway: Because No Reason

Because Sunday was Easter and sunny and beautiful. Because Monday brought us five inches of snow. Because Tuesdays aren’t only for tacos. Because there’s always room for coffee. Because sometimes we need to be reminded that we have superhero powers hidden in our smiles. Or maybe because I love you readers just so much it makes my heart wanna give. I am giving away a coffee mug. For your coffee, tea, cereal, soup, or hot sauce holder. Choose between these two: To enter, simply leave me an answer to my question. Put your thinker on, it’s deep.

Maybe I Do Need Another Coffee Mug

It’s been maybe more than once that my husband has said, “do we really need another coffee mug?”  It’s been 20 years. Today is our 20th anniversary, and while it’s really been a wonderful 20 years, when he talks crazy like that I begin to wonder if he knows me at all.  Uh, hello.

Mug Swap

I love that app. I love watching my New Zealand friend’s pregnant belly grow. I love seeing what my Florida chef friend made for breakfast because it’s not eggs with her, it’s artwork. I love that I get to share pictures of my kids with my dad even though he is techno-slow. But today I mostly love that my new friend Rachel and I met because God wanted me to know people out there get…

Coffee Is My Manna

OK, so I know that coffee isn’t really what sustains me. But, I will tell you what- I SURE LOVE IT. I understand Lorelai’s outstretched arms. That face in return is because Luke (or whoever I am speaking to at the moment) knows I am downplaying how much coffee I have consumed. I use every ounce of will power to stop at one cup of coffee. And, because my will power ounces equal around 6, I usually have my second cup on the way to work. This morning, for instance, I was served one cup in bed, and I followed…
