The whole idea behind my blog, Breakfast with Bentley, is to capture and treasure those special moments in life, whether it be the quiet time in the morning or a great recipe you perfected, a gift idea for a friend, or even advice to a future bride. Blogging is my way of sharing experiences, memories and ideas with my friends, family and the world.
When Wayfair (the home décor website with the catchy commercials!) reached out to me and asked me to share my morning ritual, I jumped on the chance. Rituals are a part of what makes us unique and part of what makes us special. I couldn’t agree more. These moments, how mighty small they may be, are important to cherish.
I love the morning because I like waking up early, while the world is still sleeping. I like to tip-toe around the house, making sure not to wake our two pups. I like to turn on our Keurig (or sometimes I will program it), and I like to pull a K-cup out of the carousel, choosing a different one each time.
I have a vast mug collection, and I choose one carefully. I want each mug to have their own turn. I like to watch the coffee brew and take in the smell while the dogs snore softly in the other room. I like to sit in the nook of the couch, feet up on the ottoman, enjoying a fresh cup of coffee, catching up on the news or the latest television episode. I know I am fortunate to have this time to myself, to catch up on my thoughts and my life. I know it won’t stay this way forever, but I cherish these moments.
When the sun is rising and the birds are chirping and my day has not yet begun… this is #coffeemyway.
