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 :)


  1. OK .. I'm coming over for a cuppa joe really soon! :) I swear by the local honey and keep telling my family to use/eat it to help with allergies as they're sneezing and wheezing while I'm not bothered. It really does work as God intended :)

  2. Yes it does! Looking forward to our visit :)
