This week has been a hard one. My body is not recovering well from its break from its usual routine. Though my tastebuds loved all the cheese I ate in Iowa, my bones and muscles are screaming for mercy. My usual morning routine of the gym followed by a hot shower has not been happening. So instead I have been coming straight home and comforting myself with something beyond my usual tea on the run.
My husband is mocking me, but after participating in the Latte Love Twitter party, I have been a bit obsessed with them. The mocking is because I am so not a coffee drinker. But these morning “fancy” drinks make me feel happy. And I get my milk in along with a little extra kick.
After doing my best to make my drink pretty (I can neither confirm nor deny that I have been using cupcake stencils and cocoa), I settle down in front of the computer to drink up while I read some of my favorite blogs. Here’s what on my favorites list these days. It’s my own personal “Morning Latte Makes My Breakfast Better” reading list.
Flora and Fauna: Her pictures of Fall make me want to run away to my own little cabin in the mountains!
Lag Liv: A longtime favorite of mine, Ms. Lag Liv is the best kind of blog in my world, just a straight forward life story.
Terra the Bear: The best part of my Toyota trip last week was hanging out with Terra. She is a ray of sunshine and her blog always makes me smile.
Sweet Fine Day: Another longtime read… the pictures, the food, the honesty, the family. I love everything about this baker and graphic designer and their crazy life with two kids and a small business.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. I will be pinning more to my Latte Love board! Check it out for more of my morning reads. And leave a comment with your favorite blog. I would love to check it out.
