Good morning! Happy Memorial Day to my fellow Americans, especially the men and women in the armed forces.
Here’s something small that is having a hugely positive impact on my mood: Gardenias! The other night, I cut a bunch of lovely white gardenias off a big bush in front of my house and arranged them in a Ball jar – they have made my house smell SO delicious.
Speaking of smelling delicious, today I had the most AMAZING CUP OF COFFEE.
Yesterday, I was caffeine-free because I was taking an ASI Test, and it was so, so hard to go without coffee. I ended up going to sleep at 10 PM after moping around the house in a hormonal, teary mess – literally. All I could think about was caffeine. I’m a coffee addict, and I’m not ashamed to admit it.
We were actually OUT of coffee this morning, so I walked to a corner store in my pajamas for a piping fresh cup. So worth it. I burned my lips taking the first sip because I could hardly wait to get the java down my throat.
If I have to quit coffee during pregnancy, I am going to be one angry pregnant woman.
Cooked this lovely breakfast when the coffee started to kick in:
Scrambled eggs with parsley on whole wheat bread smothered in Italian herbs in a tube.
+ some lovely fruit.
Time to get my workout + work on. It may be a holiday, but I have plans to maximize it!
Are you a coffee addict?
