It's been gray, foggy, and cold here in Portland, Oregon. It's no accident that folks in the Northwest are coffee addicts....we use it to self-medicate when the sun disappears for months at a time and the rain soaks through everything. And now that we had to change our clocks back, it gets dark sooooo early.
So, I turn to coffee and memories of Hawaii! This is one of my favorite mugs from Maui. It's tall and narrow.
When I use it, I think about having breakfast out on the lanai,
and the palm trees
and the clear blue sky
and the flowers
