Recently, Folgers asked me to talk about my morning routine, and I realized that on a perfect day, it revolves around coffee and music. I’m not exactly what you’d call a morning person. I’m not a grouch or anything, but I need a little time before the family can start with the rapid-fire questions and requests.
Beans are stored in a sealable jar, and a tea canister brought back from this trip holds sweetener (it happens to have my initials). This little set-up makes me smile every time, and I love that it keeps the counters organized.
Then I escape to the new backyard patio, with my iTunes, newspaper, and favorite mug.
Mr. Sugarplum used to be a professional musician, and even though he doesn’t do it for a living anymore, there is always music playing in our home. He even made up a song about coffee we sing as a joke.
Reheat my coffaaaay,
Pour me some love.
Add a pinch of sugar, baby,
and french vanill-uuuuh!
