I feel a ridiculous amount of joy when I’m able to connect with somebody in the elevator on my way into the office in the morning. When the woman in line at Target and I bond over our love for the same simple chapstick that we each buy in bulk.When the sweet and incredibly shy man who has repeatedly made me the perfect sandwich for 2 years at my favorite lunch spot finally looks me in the eye and grins at my attempt to start conversation, when I swear to god I’ve tried to get a smile out of him forever. And when I order a coffee and the barista grins and proudly says “Well look at that!”
Beautiful moments shared with complete strangers rock my world. This little love note made my day. And it reminded me that no matter what shape or form it comes in or who delivers it love always wins.
No, I am not your alarm clock, I’m better… well, not really, but I’m trying be. Okay look, I know Mondays are like the last donut in the box that nobody wants to touch because everyone has touched it at least once aaand… its gross. But suck it up, put your big girl/boy panties on (all styles accepted), twirl/shake it through a mist of your favorite perfume/cologne, slip into your favorite ‘I feel goood… shoot, I look good too!‘ outfit and play your favorite album on your way to work & sing at the top of your lungs. Yup. Even if you take: Trax/the bus/your bike/rollerblades/wings/disco-make-you-fly-sneaks. Just singbaby! And have a fantastic day to ring in the new week!
I’m trying to offer a blog that everyone can benefit from. I know that has not always been the case (my apologies) Here are a few things to browse while you enjoy your breakfast of champions AKA the last donut. Don’t worry……. I won’t tell anyone, as long as you wipe that scowl off your face & smile before your boss gets in.
My beloved french press broke this morning during a caffeine withdrawal. I’m so sad about it. All ya’all coffee-fiends know exactly what kind of shit show was going on in my kitchen when this all went down.
My hair was curly & sticking out in every direction from bedhead and my robe was tied in some kind of boyscout knot just in case. One sock is long & the other um… isn’t. Basically, I’m a wreck up from the neck up & some. Logan lets me down when it comes to a good cup of joe, so desperate times call for desperate measures….
I boiled water & put my coffee grounds in my measuring cup. Then I let it steep for 4 minutes, stirred it & began my lovely filtering process. I used my wee tea strainer (made for individual cups) until I had a full cup of coffee. Clearly not messing around here…
Then I took my proud & crafty self out on my porch & pretended to enjoy my coffee outside. That was quite the treat until I remembered how much I hate the wind (damnitttt). It’s just as nice on my couch with all of the windows open, so I am one happy girl. The best part is I’m not eating my hair while trying to sip my ground-free-coffee.
That’s a lie. The best part is that today is my day off & I get to spend it getting educated & loving/being loved by my sweet Andy.
Sometimes when you want something you have to figure out how to get it for yourself. And I was not about to go to class without at least one cup of coffee. I hope you’re having a fabulous day & that you don’t run into anything that interferes with you & your daily dose. All my love, Bee
Letting go of my propensity to drown in a cup (or four) of coffee has played a toll on me for the last week & a half. To make it easier, I’ve started researching what exactly coffee does to you, one of which is premature aging. Isn’t that lovely? So with that said I decided that was enough to convince me to switch to tea. Today as my antioxidant green tea was steeping I noticed there was a little note on the bag….
…And as petty as it may seem to some, I think any positive message has the ability to increase the value of your day. So I’m going to keep on sippin’ for some sense of well-being and a clear, jitter-free mind & do my best to avoid the java. I guess what it comes down to is that I like cute shit, & this falls under that category. XOXO
Good morning sunshines! I’m just sitting here eating my SpecialK, trying to ignore the coffee and embrace my tea… I have school in twenty minutes. I’d rather not talk about it. If any bitches try to take my parking spot this morning I will not be pleased. I’m hoping I have a handful of yums for classmates and a cute old teacher that can help me with my homework a lot. I had the best 2 week summer EVERRRRR…….
