So I went to Starbucks this morning, the first time in a while because I’ve been on a Dunkin Donuts kick. I love their coffee but not the espresso drinks. Today I wanted a caramel machiatto, skim, no foam please! I was going to need it for a long day ahead.
The barista at the drive thru hands me the red holiday cup and I literally gasp! I think I scared him.
There is nothing like the Starbucks red cup to get me in the holiday spirit!
Some of you might think, “really? a freaking red cup? I say yes! When I see it, I think about the holidays, dinners with friends and family, Christmas vacation and days off at home with my doggies and boyfriend (who I don’t have a day off with my current schedule).
I compose myself, look at it and it says “Lets rediscover why we are best friends” and I think, yeah, lets!
I’m a true believer in the saying ” It’s the small things in life that count” and the Starbucks red holiday cup is the perfect example:
I had to work 8-6 on a Sunday, I was running late ( and my boss actually docked the fifteen minutes off my pay at the end of the day) but getting that holiday cup this morning put me in a great mood.
It made me stop feeling sorry for myself, things aren’t so bad, the holidays are almost here, a new year lies ahead and all is well!
Take the time to appreciate the little things!
