I turn coffee into dreams


There’s no denying that I love my coffee. Truth be told, I’ve been drinking coffee since I was a teenager and, yes I am slightly addicted (and please spare me all the health reasons of why I should stop drinking coffee).

You see, I come from a family of coffee drinkers and at one point in my life, I was drinking coffee all day long, an average of 2 pots a day.

I like love coffee. And there were times where I had to make changes because in my last pregnancy the coffee was gross, but due to my slight coffee addiction, the headaches were insane. And so I added creamer and a few pounds.

I’ve since gone back to black coffee and drink about 3-5 cups depending when I wake up. I switched to water for the rest of the day.

I applaud the person who decided that this one little bean and engaging it with water came up with this nectar.

I sometimes, wake up to coffee in bed with a few moments of closeness with my partner.

And at other times, I sit on my deck with my cup of coffee and my journal, enjoying the sounds of nature that surrounds our home.

This is a perfect start to my day.

Coffee and I have the perfect relationship because coffee understands, and it also doesn’t talk back.

I sit and ponder about the day, conjuring ideas and my next steps. And it’s beautiful.

I know coffee get’s a bad rap at times and other’s simply don’t like it. I don’t like matcha green tea. It’s all good!

We all over our likes and dislikes and we all choose what we allow to be part of our dreams.

I choose coffee.

There was a time where my love for coffee was frowned upon. And instead, I chose to embrace it.

There’s nothing wrong with turning your coffee, or tea or other favorite things into your dreams.

But coffee and me, we get along.

I created this t-shirt to show my love for coffee and that it is really a part of my life.
