I inspired myself as I wrote my post on Saturday. I've known for a while that I have a small collection of coffee mugs, but what I realized Saturday is that there is a reason I have each mug. But reason isn't quite the right word...there's more of a story behind each mug. Something inspired me to buy it, or someone special gave it to me. And since I love telling stories, Mug Monday was born. The goal is that each Monday from now until I run out of coffee mugs, I will feature a different one and the story behind it.
Today's mug is a Vera Bradley mug and it was a Christmas gift this year from my sister, Amanda. She said that when she saw it, it reminded her of me and she just had to get it. I am so glad that she did, because I do love it! It's purple and it has paisleys on it, two more things that I love. What's funny though, is that my mom bought me a Vera Bradley backpack for Christmas, and she get it in the exact same print (Very Berry Paisley), and neither of them knew what the other had bought me! I guess this proves that I'm predictable, easy to please, and that Amanda and Mom are good gift buyers!
|I love the tall, slender shape of this mug. Very sophisticated.|

And I haven't forgotten my feet picture. I spent the first part of my evening baking cupcakes, then I had my Class '14 small group. After small group I went to the gym, and then came back and got busy in the kitchen again! I had to finish baking the cupcakes, and as I type I'm also in the process of making homemade frosting! I'll let you know how it turns out tomorrow!
