One of my favorite stores in town is closing it’s doors at the end of next month. The Gourmet Pantry is a kitchen store, but also has a wide range of gifts and decor items. I’ve visited the store many times over the last few years and always found something that spoke to me and followed me home. Today I stopped by and picked up a couple of coffee mugs – everything in the store is discounted 40%. It’s time to retire some of our old mis-matched mugs that we’ve accumulated over the past years. You know the mugs that have business logos on them ( hubby likes those). Anyway, I cleared out the cabinet that holds our cups and mugs and carefully selected the ones that were put back in place along with the new addition. The vibrant colors of the LeCreuset mugs are cheerful and make me smile.
I’m looking forward to enjoying a fresh hot cup of coffee using my new mug today. What are you doing on this chilly January day?
