Coffee: My Good Friend in the Morning

Hey there. Emmy here!
Are you a coffee lover?  Don't you just love the smell of coffee being brewed? 
I don't know about you, but to me, there's just something about that first cup in the morning, that's so delicious. I like half and half in my coffee, so in the morning I put a little bit in, and then pour my coffee, and it's nice and hot, and tastes great.
What's your favorite kind of coffee? What do you like in yours?

Have a warm day!

Let it Snow!

Today here in Colorado Springs it's windy, cold, and snowy! It's currently 27 degrees (Fahrenheit) outside!  My ballet class that would have been tonight, has been cancelled due to the icy and snowy roads. So today will consist of staying warm and cozy, coffee and/or hot chocolate, sitting by the fire, and wearing sweatshirts. : )
Hope your day is warmer than mine!
