I'd rather take coffee than compliments just now.

Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

My love for coffee runs deep. Unfortunately, we have a rather sordid relationship. I love the gentle caffeine buzz in the morning, it's warm comfort, it's flavor...all of it.

Unfortunately, the jittery crash that often follows is not so lovely. I know it makes me anxious. I know it makes my blood sugar feel out of whack come late afternoon. My integrative medicine doctor suggested years ago that we break up. How dare she.

I made it almost 2 years without regular coffee fixes. But over the last year or so I have started back up. It calls to me. Tea, not so much. But I realize that feeling calm, cool and collected is worth the sacrifice. So I have been easing myself off via decaf. Then I got to thinking: Perhaps there are other, non liquid, ways to experience the joys of my friend Joe.

Here's to you, my love. On a Thursday.

Loves on a Thursday


  1. Oh, two and four are my absolute favorites! Please let me know if you find something worthwhile to replace the joe. I, too, have fallen victim to its goodness ... I'm weak, I tell you ... weak!

  2. I am in love with that blogs and coffee print! I am going to have to get it! :) Thanks!

  3. This is such a fun post! Love all the coffee themed items. I'm following along :)

  4. I love coffee too! Your blog is so fun, one of my new favorites!!!

  5. That cake!! That jacket! Oh heck, the boots too...I LOVE these :) Think I need a bit more coffee colored things in my life!

  6. I went three years without any caffeine while I was pregnant and breastfeeding(twice) and I felt amazing, but....I started slowly drinking coffee again and now I am addicted! I love the taste and smell but not the way I feel...so I am thinking of trying to go off of it again. :(

  7. haha...I love the coffee inspired things. I don't think I'm addicted to coffee...I usually have a small cup in the morning. But I definitely love it!

  8. I think most of us have a love/hate relationship with coffee. Mine is more love when I have it.. and hate when I don't haha.

  9. The print at the bottom is so cute! Love these finds... I would be devastated if someone told me I had to break up with coffe. Probably go a little crazy ex stalker too.
