There’s something to be said for a morning ritual – an order in which you do things to get your day started on the right note. A favorite song to wake you up, a morning yoga routine to energize you, a cup of morning coffee. Honestly, my morning routine is something I desperately need to work on. You’d think I’d be better about having a peaceful morning ritual, especially as a freelancer who can make my own schedule – but I suppose that’s just something I’ll have to try and improve on this year! Anyway, while Daniel and I have gotten pretty lax about keeping to any sort of regular routine lately, there’s still one thing that we usually love to share in together to start our day off right – and that’s our cup of morning coffee.
Now, in an ideal world, we’d be able to go out for a cup of coffee every morning without breaking the bank (man does it add up!). But, because we usually drink our coffee at home throughout the week (thank goodness for our Nespresso 😉 ), it’s all the more of a treat to go out for a special cup on the weekends. One of favorite places to spend a Saturday morning is La Grande Orange, here in central Phoenix. Not only do they have an overabundance of pastries and croissants (my favorite!), but they make something called a Mayan latte, which is basically one of the best things ever created. It’s a regular latte with espresso, but with chocolate and cinnamon added to it as well. It’s seriously SO GOOD you guys. I could drink like 1,000 of them – except for, ya know, calories. Lame.

I’m looking forward to starting off many more mornings this year by sharing a cup of morning coffee with my Schmoo. Sometimes it really is the littlest things that can bring so much joy and fulfillment to your life – and I think for us, a cup of morning coffee is pretty much the pinnacle of simplistic bliss.
What’s one of your favorite morning rituals?
