I have a totally random blog post topic to discuss this morning, but first, let’s wake up with breakfast.
Oh hey, yogurt bowl! It’s been a while, huh?
(Pay no attention to the woman in the spoon…)
Today’s breakfast included a strawberry Greek yogurt bowl topped with oats and sliced almonds. I was really craving overnight oats but since I failed to prep a batch last night, this yogurt and oat hodgepodge bowl was the next best thing.
This morning, as I made myself a cup of coffee, I honestly felt myself feel warmer inside before I even took a sip. I realized, then and there, just how much I love sipping on a hot beverage every morning.
A hot mug of coffee or tea makes me feel cozy, calm (well, until the caffeine kicks in) and just plain happier. That’s totally crazy, right!? Well, as I started to think about just how happy a hot morning mug of coffee or tea makes me, I began thinking of other things that make me happier than they should. Things that are great, but their greatness is really disproportionate to my love for them.
For example: Candles.
Candles are lovely, sure, but are they really that awesome? Probably not. But I really do adore the way lighting a candle can change the ambiance of a room and the way the strong smell of a holiday pine candle can take over our house and make it feel more homey.
More things I love more than I should:
- Clean sheets
- Oversize cozy blankets
- Gel nail polish (a splurge I rarely do, but ohmygosh it lasts so much longer)
- Father of the Bride
- Frozen yogurt
- The Pitch Perfect soundtrack
- Lip balm
- An empty email inbox (this is just a pipe dream, but oh how wonderful it would be)
- Sparkling water
And then there are things I love way too much that I think are 100 percent deserving of all the love: My family, my best friends, Sadie, hiking, traveling, date nights, the mountains, reading, Christmas, dessert, massages and a homecooked meal.
I thought this might make a fun (and yes, totally random) topic for today’s blog post and I’d love to hear about things you love a little too much below!
