I was wondering this morning as I went about the ritual of preparing my beverage of choice, hot chocolate of course, if anyone had the same problem as I, and that is which cup to use? Is there one cup which is better for coffee, tea or hot chocolate?
I realized that I choose my cup depending upon my mood. I have some cups which make me happier than others. I know it probably sounds a little strange but I do think it is true what they say about life, it is all about the simple pleasures, and picking a cup from my cabinet gives me a smile.
For instance on a grey, rainy day, a mug is best for a big cup of tea or hot chocolate to take the chill out of my bones and to accompany me as I sit with a stack of magazines or at my desk working. And a statement like the one on the mug above makes a little free time a celebration and serves to remind me that life is all about the little things.
On winter days I like a bit of whimsy to start me off with a smile.
And on days that I am feeling a little nostalgic or lonely, I like to use tea cups or mugs that remind me of the special people in my life. Perhaps we purchased the china together on an adventure or it was passed down from family.
What about you? What is your morning beverage of choice, coffee, tea or hot chocolate? How do you take it? In a mug, a cup, an insulated cup to go? Or perhaps your ritual is to head out to your local coffee house?
Do you take pleasure in the ritual or is it just a morning pick me up?
Whatever the case I hope you enjoy a cuppa and have a fabulous day!
