Favorite Things

Four years ago, during a trip to Italy, I fell in love with coffee. I have been an avid tea drinker for most of my life but there was something about that Italian Espresso that had me trading in my tea leaves for coffee beans by the time I got home. My morning wake up call is now a homemade latte using a few of my favorite things. Happy Friday!

My favorite coffee mug from Starbucks. It reminds me of one my favorite places.

Espresso Coffee. Enough said.

Torani Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup. I’ve tried them all. This is the best!

Nespresso Milk Frother. I am completely addicted to this wonderful little gadget. I will even take it with me when I travel!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. That looks wonderful! I really want one of those frothers. I have a manual one that works well. Stopping by from the SITS Sharefest. Have a great weekend.

  2. Loved your post, as I sit here drinking my coffee!!! I like the frother idea, I havn’t tried one but I think it may just get put on my Christmas List!!

  3. I love your NYC coffee cup. I’m visiting from SITS.

  4. Oooh! Thanks for the tip on the vanilla syrup! I love your mug too…one of my favorite places. What a delicious cup of coffee! Visiting from SITS…

  5. It is always great to recognize and remember the things we enjoy and the things that make us feel better! (Stopping by from SITS)

  6. What a wonderful thing to have something that fills you with such joy to start your day. Hm. I’m going to have to find something that works like that for me. A moment of chosen joy to start my day sounds like a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Sharefest. Have a great weekend.

  7. Your morning coffee sounds soo much better than my instant stuff. Although even if I had the tools for it, I’m much too lazy in the mornings to do more then pour boiling water into a cup and stir :p
