Why My Morning Coffee is Important To Me

I love slow mornings, even on days when I know I have a lot of deadlines waiting on me. There’s just something about having that first sip of coffee and immediately feeling you’re ready to take on the day. Today, I will share with you  why nothing comes before coffee for me, and how important it is in my daily routine. #McCafe

I’m not an early bird, but this bird still really enjoys waking up in the morning and having her little me-time with her morning bestie; coffee. Coffee is more than just a beverage to me; it’s my morning breakfast companion, and I do not go a day without it. I daydream about my mornings at night, and knowing that I’ll have my coffee in the morning helps get me to sleep faster! Isn’t that funny? I’m sure I’m not the only one! Besides the fact that coffee helps wake up my senses, it’s the perfect warm-up to my mornings, and I love taking this time to read and meditate, gather my thoughts, review my to-do lists, and plan the day out. Mornings aren’t complete without my cup of coffee, and when my coffee is right, the rest of the day is right!

Lately, I’ve been really enjoying McDonald’s new McCafé  espresso menu, and the one I have been loving is their new Hot Caramel Macchiato. When I’m feeling extra festive, I go for their Peppermint Mocha (only available through December 2017). The new flavors are so good, and I highly suggest that you go out and try them for yourself!

The one thing that I love about this generation is that we’ve kind of allowed coffee to trickle down to the rest of our schedule. It’s not just a morning beverage anymore, it’s something that helps me, personally, to get through the day. Especially when I’m dealing with blog work like answering emails, signing contracts, drafting blog posts, editing photos, shooting product photos, etc. I seriously can’t do anything unless I’ve had my mid-day coffee. I love that McCafé has launched  a  new line of café-quality espresso drinks because they honestly taste so good. McCafé definitely gets me back on track.
