What is it about a coffee or tea cup that either makes or breaks a good cup of coffee (or tea)? For me, the cup has to be one I can wrap my fingers three quarters the way around (not too bulky) and light weight! My DH, on the other hand, likes something tall and slender. My parents and some of my friends like the big, sturdy, wide mugs. It’s all personal preference!
On our trip last weekend, my younger brother handed me a little insulated mug while I was trying to get my three little guys ready for Sunday morning church, knowing full well I wanted my coffee, but with somewhat of a guarantee it would remain fairly warm through the whole process. (This same brother used to torment me by pulling my braids…hard!…when we were little just to get my goat!) This little act of kindness made me smile and, afterward, I realized it was the perfect coffee cup for a mother! I like it’s a light weight, 12 oz. size and the fact that it’s insulated. How many times do you think I get distracted from my coffee in a morning?! 🙂 No more microwaving for me! Yay!
