Most Wednesday mornings I work from my favorite neighborhood coffee shop. The atmosphere is just right whether I need to tune out of the world to focus on a detailed writing project or prefer the inspiration of interesting characters. In addition to unbeatable day-specific playlists (old school hip hop Wednesdays anyone?!), they create and pour creative drink specials that change with the season.
Last week, as I battled a weary spirit and the temperatures dipped toward fall, I was in need of something more grounding and comforting than my summer staple of iced tea. As if they read my mind, the barista team unveiled a lovely treat just in time to brighten my day. The “London Fog latte,” which combines my much beloved Earl Grey tea with steamed milk, was just what I needed to soothe my spirit and warm my body.
Simple comforts surround us, but we have to keep our eyes and minds open to find them. What small treat could brighten your mood and start your day off right?
