Thank goodness it's (a sweet sweet) Friday!
I chose this picture because these are now my favorite items first thing in the morning. I have had a french press for years, but it has been in the back of my cupboard. A couple of days ago I saw it and cleaned the press up and I am using it again. I now say "It's a crying shame that I have left it unattended for so long!"
On the left is my milk frother that I purchased on sale at Macy's about four years ago. It is the best little invention for a foamy drink fix.
In the center of the picture is a mason jar of local honey that I use as my sweetener. Local honey has the added benefit of helping your body build immunity to local allergens. For cost effectiveness we purchased a large container at the local farmers' market and keep a small amount in a mason jar for easy access.
On the right is a container of cinnamon. I add cinnamon to my coffee not only for the flavor but, because cinnamon is good for controlling sugar levels in the body as well as calming inflammation.
After I sat down this morning with my hot mug of goodness, I knew I had to share this with you. The coffee was piping hot, rich and lightly sweetened from the honey. The cinnamon added a special sweet spice and the frothy milk on top was an extra luxurious treat. What a great way to start this beautiful Friday! I wish you all a most wonderful day filled with a touch of sweetness :)
