We do an annual camping trip with a group of friends every year at the end of summer and last year my friend Liz left this coffee mug behind. I grabbed it when I found it during my final sweep of the grounds and brought it home with me and even though I love this beautiful handmade mug I had every intention of returning it to her. When I told her I had it she pffft'd me and said "keep it" cause she had plenty. REALLY? Sweet! Yay for me!
Now I have coffee with Liz every weekend. I get to enjoy this mug as I indulge in two of my guilty pleasures. Animal Rescue and Jack Hanna on Saturday mornings and reruns of Mad Men in the wee hours of my Sunday mornings.
*shhhh* Don't tell those I have convinced I don't get up early in the morning!
This mug, and the friendship it represents makes me happy.
