In my dream life, I wake up ridiculously early and enjoy a leisurely breakfast, at which I drink my entire cup of coffee while sitting down and reading the newspaper (or a few of my favorite blogs, actually—let’s be honest).
In my real life, unfortunately, I have a terrible habit of hitting snooze a few times and then flying out the door with coffee in hand. When I finally skid into class and catch my breath, I am inevitably dismayed to find a giant spattering of coffee on my shirt or my leg or my bag or perhaps on the side of my face.
I am a firm believer in working to close the gap between real life and dream life.
I am also a firm believer in being honest about one’s own strengths, weaknesses, and priorities. And anyways, this has been going on for way too long.
So until I make my dream breakfast (which probably looks a lot like this) happen on a more regular basis, I might just have to invest in a very sturdy, very leak-proof travel mug. That way, I can run like a madwoman when necessary and still arrive at my destination with my coffee and my clean shirt intact.
Basically, this is all just to say that while I’d love to collect pretty stay-at-home mugs like these by Molly Hatch…
