I'm often asked why I blog. I usually give the standard answers such as I love to write, I love to document my life with my family, I love to show how typical life can be with Down syndrome and I love the experiences it provides, but there is one more reason: I absolutely love the blogging community! That's why I was so excited to participate in the Mug Love Exchange!
As a mom, caffeine is my lifeline. There's no reason to sugar coat it. I need caffeine all day every day if I want to keep up with my four kids! Those epic dark circles that keep popping up under my eyes is only a testament to how busy life is these days. If I didn't get my caffeine fix, I would sink!
I do like coffee, but hot tea is my go-to drink. Considering how much caffeine I chug, tea is probably a much healthier option than my favorite creamer with a little drop of coffee drink! Over the years of getting a daily caffeine fix, I've acquired quite the collection of coffee mugs and tea cups. Much to my husband's dismay, I just can't stop buying them. If I spot a cute mug it hops into my cart. And even though I pack the seasonal ones away after holidays, my collection keeps growing and I'm running out of storage space.
Let's face it. The next logical step will be this... (Take note, dear husband, and head to Lowe's!)
