I have a slight love for coffee. I have said it many times here and across social media. It’s an everyday enjoyment for me and I am not just a morning drinker; An afternoon cup, sometimes an evening cup, and if I am working late, a late night cup of coffee will be added.
I remember how my mom would always drink coffee. I mean she still does drink coffee daily. However, I have those memories when I was younger, especially as a teenager, when I just didn’t get it. I didn’t understand why she would get up so early before all of us and have a few cups of coffee. There were
nights mornings I was just dozing off I would hear her get up and start the coffee maker.
I also remember my mom having hundreds of coffee cups. Okay, that’s a slight exaggeration, but she definitely had a large collection. They were all lined up above the kitchen cabinets, inside the cabinets, in the hutch and everywhere she could find space for more.
We would get her coffee cups when we went anywhere without her and she would bring them back from trips. Each year her collection would grow and grow. I never got it.
That was until years later. The first year when I was living on my own, going to college and working. And then even more so when I became a mom myself. I quickly found myself falling in love with coffee just like my mom. Even more than my mom, dare I say. Now I have to keep different brews of coffee on hand. Community Coffee has a large variety of flavors from house blend to french roast to seasonal varieties such as pumpkin praline.
Just as my mom, my love for coffee also lead to a growing collection of coffee mugs. Every time I go to the store, I have to talk myself out of buying all the mugs. There’s just something about those adorable mugs that speak to me. In a way, I still don’t understand it, but now it’s my own obsession, not my mom’s.
To go with my growing mug collection, I decide to make a fun printable art. It was made for my coffee station, but it would also be perfect for above coffee cup racks. The printable is made for an 8×10″ frame, but looks good printed on 8.5×11″ as well.
These are just a few of my favorite coffee mugs. Most of my coffee mugs are funny or have a positive message. The right colors are important, too. They give a positive vibe, such as my red ombre Community Coffee mug. My all-time favorite mug is always changing. Right now? It’s this one:
Because no matter what is going on, we need to remember: Always choose happy.
