Those who know me well likely know that I absolutely love coffee (dark roast, especially) and collect coffee cups. Many of them are from Starbucks New York and Florida, as well as around the US and the world over. I love the way they remind me of treasured travel memories as I sip my morning coffee and remind me that the world is a wide and wonderful place. Others celebrate the magic of Disney and "one man's dream." Still others inspire me to write, like my Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators from many, many years ago. I even have a Central Perks mug (a present from a dear long-time friend many years ago) to celebrate our friendship and our love for the long-running tv series, Friends.
I enjoy changing out my coffee cup to fit my mood, and deciding whether it's a regular mug or jumbo mug coffee day.
In this holiday season, where so many of us are limited to the world within our homes and spend so very much time trying to be inspired, I thought I would recommend some fun and inspiring coffee mugs to start your day with. I may even make this a yearly tradition.
