Good Morning everyone!
The weather here is all over the place. Currently, it is freezing out. Which all I can say is, not cool Canada, not cool. But that being said that gives me more reason to curl up with a hot drink and have a million blankets on me.
Coffee is such a great wake up call in the morning, especially the ones where you can hardly pull yourself out of bed. Don't get me wrong, a good cup of tea or hot chocolate are also good. But nothing beats a warm hug of coffee to bring in the day.
So another thing I am a sucker for in the morning, is having the said drink in the most adorable classic looking cup. My mug cupboard is overwhelming, each morning is such a struggle to pick my mug :p. It's another thing I keep my eyes out for when at any thrift stores I go to. Normally I start off my day with one cup of coffee, then if I need something warm during the day I have tea instead. Having hot chocolate is like a treat to myself because it is so decadent and rich.
Next step in the morning is picking the coziest blanket to snuggle up in while having breakfast and watching Netflix. For me mornings on the weekends mean spending some downtime with my boyfriend and watch some Netflix while enjoying our breakfasts together. During the week we work such different hours that we don't get the mornings together. We have started to collect blankets in our home, so we each get our own blanket choice. Today I chose for fringe.
I love having things in my home that have that cozy vibe. And for me, that's wood. It is something I associate warmth, and cozyness with. My grandparents on my dad's side used to have wood on the walls in their home, and for me having wood in the home is just such a reminder of my childhood there. It brings family memories, and family closeness. I find wood element in the home ( and not just flooring) can really bring the old classic home feeling to the new modernly made homes. And with everything becoming more modern and cold, having some old school style like including wood in the home, can really bring the home back to the past. The home lifestyle has changed throughout the years, but something my family has been so huge on is, no matter the home you always get that old school vibe from it. Where families get together in the kitchen and sit down, no tv, enjoy a meal together, and talk to each other. Not many people do that anymore, and to me that is such a shame. Bring back old school home lifestyle back into the world. I guarantee you will feel so much better.
Hope your weekend mornings are relaxing, and cozy! Enjoy your day.
