Sometimes it’s the little things that mark the changing of the seasons.  Obviously, what you wear changes, but so does what you eat and drink.  In the fall and winter months, I look forward to hot cider and hearty comfort food, but come the spring and summer I go for healthier meals and colder treats.  There is one obsession though that I love to enjoy year-round, and that’s coffee.

If you’ve been following AiW for a while, you probably already know that I’m a huge coffee lover.  From the second I wake up in the morning, the first thing I think about is what kind of coffee I’ll be savoring that day.  It’s one of my favorite daily treats.  And because I’m not a morning person AT ALL, it’s the little things like my coffee that make my mornings bearable.

Most days I wake up and immediately check my email before rushing to grab my laptop to start working.  Other times, my mornings involve me going out and chasing the beautifully diffused morning light for outfit photos.  On those days when I’m racing against the morning sun, I have to make sure to get all my outfits packed and ready to go.  But no matter what, I don’t leave the house without my cup of coffee.

And in case you didn’t know, my husband helps me with all my photography.  I feel so lucky that we get to work together, especially because my job isn’t what you would call an 8 to 5 gig.  It’s 18 hour days with crazy work schedules but I wouldn’t change a thing!  On these photoshoot days, we usually grab a quick bite and our coffees before we’re out the door.

Now with summer being here, I’ve switched from the usual hot coffee to Coffee-mate Natural Bliss Sweet Cream Cold Brew Coffee.  The cold, creamy, and sweet flavor is just the pick me up I need.  It’s all natural so it’s made with real milk and cream which the foodie in me appreciates.  And because it’s ready to drink with no need to add cream or sugar, I especially love it on days when I’m trying to rush out the door.

Whether it’s a relaxing morning at my desk or I’m quickly pouring a cup on the go, I look forward to this icy goodness.  With already the appearance of 100-degree days (can you believe) it’s a particularly wonderful addition to my routine.

And when I’m not in a huge hurry I still look forward to a cup of coffee and my newest favorite breakfast… a blueberry omelet(Seriously.  Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.)  It’s a normal omelet stuffed with goat cheese and fresh blueberries.  I find the salty, sweet goodness to be just so satisfying.  I just love my slow weekends when I can enjoy both together. So for your next breakfast try a cup of the Coffee-mate Natural Bliss Sweet Cream Cold Brew Coffee.  I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
