a-photo-a-day challenge, day 2: Breakfast #JANphotoaday

Today’s prompt in the #JANphotoaday challenge is breakfast. Sadly my breakfast of champions is coffee! Yeah, yeah, I know breakfast is the most important meal of the day…and so is my coffee! I take it with vanilla creamer. Yum!

Now, this photo isn’t just about a mug of joe though. It actually reveals all sorts of secrets about me…

  • That’s my site on the computer. It’s one of the first places I check in the morning while drinking my breakfast, I mean, coffee.
  • The mug handle is to the right…I’m a righty. But my son and husband are lefties. Pretty sure my daughter is a righty like her mom. Love how that worked out.
  • That mug is a freebie from the ABC store. You spend enough money and they give you free gifts like a mug or calendar. This mug was passed on to me by my mom and dad who used to live here. I should really start saving the ABC store receipts, I usually hand them off to tourists who are spending copious amounts at the store trying to get those $3 freebies.
  • That kitty is our good luck mojo, pointed towards the front door to bring us wealth…come on money! :)
  • Peeking in the back behind my computer to the left is a photo of me and my honey back in high school. We took that while at the Orange County Fair. We first met when I was a freshmen and he was a sophomore in our high school algebra class…it’s been an amazingly awesome ride growing together!
  • And my desk…it’s my love, simple, tropical, looks out over a big window where I can see plumerias, palm trees and the ocean.

So that’s my photo challenge for the day…so much more than breakfast!

  4. Nice to read all the stories behind the photo. Yey, we’re on out day 2! My photo was an apple. I actually had an apple pie but ate it all before I remembered I should have taken a photo – LOL! And yes, computer is part of the breakfast. This year I switched to chai tea latte from coffee but I still like coffee, not just as much as chai latte at this time :)

    • I’ve been doing Chai lattes too! As long as it’s warm in the a.m. I’m all over it..coffee, cocoa, tea.

      I love how your apple next to your apple computer played out in today’s photo Liza!

  5. Love this, Sarah! :)
