Morning Faves

Do you hear that? Neither do I.

It’s because my kids are in school and I’m able to enjoy a little peace and quiet in the mornings.

As I get older I find that I’m transforming into a true morning person. I love the morning light and feeling that anything is possible.

Don’t get me wrong, my entire day isn’t so serene, but it’s really nice to take some time out in the mornings to focus and reflect on the tasks at hand. It’s even more enjoyable with Starbucks® Caffé Latte K-Cup® pods in mocha, vanilla, or caramel. My latte of choice on this fine morning is the mocha.

I’m loving Starbucks® Caffé Latte K-Cup® pods because they deliver on my favorite flavors right in the comfort of my own home. The inventor of the Keurig is surely a genius and I’m not sure what I would do without mine and my favorite drinks. I made my mocha extra special with some whipped cream and chocolate syrup.

I’m also loving my morning time because it’s helped me rekindle my love for journaling. Since becoming a blogger I’ve sort of lost touch with old school pen and paper journaling. It’s amazing how relaxing it is to put a pen to paper and let your thoughts flow. I’ve also been keeping a paper planner this year and I use my morning time to get everything scheduled for the week.

I’ve discovered how much I love trying out new pens in my journal and taking the time to use my best handwriting. It’s just as cathartic for me as those adult coloring books, and hey, I actually love those too.

I even read somewhere that we slip into a meditative state when we color or free-write. I know that I always feel refreshed and relaxed after I jot down my thoughts and plans on paper each morning.

Fall in full swing also means that the weather is also perfect for taking my latte and notebook outside.

We recently built a new deck on the back of our house and some mornings I’m really fortunate to be able to catch glimpses of deer, squirrels or even the occasional wild turkey in our back yard! Yes, turkeys. I told you I live in a rural area!

If you haven’t picked up Starbucks® Caffé Latte K-Cup® pods yet, you must!

It’s so fun to whisk in the little sachet of sweetened dairy. It gives the cup such an amazing flavor and it’s perfect to pair with a sweet treat. It is so very yummy!

Stir, Sip, Enjoy. Signature Starbucks® latte flavors, now available in a K-Cup®
