More importantly, I carry a fun memory with most of the coffee mugs we use.
This past winter break, I went shopping with my mom and my brother's girlfriend (Sis-in-law is way easier to say. Hint, hint bro). I always forget that Ross has artsy fartsy and fun coffee cups for a super deal. I'm that girl that walks straight to the clearance section in the back of the store. I'm pretty cheap when it comes to buying things, and you have my attention if your price tag says $2.99.
I'll reminisce 2012's Christmas visit with family in Corpus when I sip some joe from these two ornate cups.
My flower hippie cup, as I like to call it, is from Riverside, CA. In the summer of 2007, I lived in Riverside with twenty other college students and took part in a Christian discipleship training program (Project Impact). We all got jobs and learned how to biblically live in community with one another and share our faith with others. We attended local churches and helped serve in their community too.
When we weren't at work or the beach, the other ladies and I would go and sit at Starbucks often and talk about work, school, the bible, and boys of course. That summer was near and dear to my heart and I'll always remember the fun times I had with sweet friends.
What a great summer! What about you? Do you have a favorite "mug memory"? To get to know you and other people better, I'd like to start up...
You'll have the opportunity to show off your favorite mug and share your story on the blog.
More info coming soon! =)
