Friday In America!

Long Time/No See Coffee Lovers!

This is my favorite time of the year and not just for the wonderful colors, cooler weather but for how coffee seems to taste just a little bit better.  So, that said, how about a new ‘Mug of the Moment’?


I bought this one on a recent trip to the north Georgia mountains, stopping at one of my favorite places, the outfitters shop Mountain Crossings at Walasi-yi just at the beginning of the Appalachian Trail.

Have a great weekend all!


Mug of the Moment!

Ahhh…cooler weather ahead, ‘shorter’ days makes each cup of coffee more enjoyable, at least on this end.

Here is a new ‘Mug of the Moment’.  I found this one, all alone, on a shelf at our local ‘Dollar Store’ and I love it!  It is slender, deep and keeps the coffee hotter, longer.
