Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Boots here . . . and loving this foam art.  Do you remember the first time that someone handed you a latte with beautiful foam art?  I can remember the very coffee shop and how pretty it was.  I had ordered a lavender white mocha and it was served in a white cup and saucer very much like the one in this picture.  

I was having kind of a weird day . . . hence the reason I was in the shop giving myself a little extra treat with which to start the day.  When I received my drink, it felt like someone handed me an extra gift along with my daily caffeine fix.  The barista created some kind of rabbit with big floppy ears, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.  I could tell that this guy really loved what he did . . . and he enjoyed making others in the coffee shop happy as well by surprising them with such unique art.  

Life is always fun when we celebrate it with some surprising art.  Today, enjoy your beverage, be it ornamented with a pretty flower or a lop-sided bunny rabbit.  Share the wealth and smile at the next person you see.  There are few things more beautiful and creative than your smile.  

Here is some cool stuff for making some sophisticated foam art at home!

What brings you joy?  Boots here . . . thinking about what brings me joy.  I can tell you that my morning cup of Joe is a good way to kickstart my day’s sense of appreciation.  And if it’s the simplest things that bring me joy, I love the simplicity of these coffee mugs.  There is something about their rustic beauty that makes my morning feel like it is going to be a good day!  I especially love the oversized, cream-colored, enamel non-travel mug!  My fave!

Life is short. Drink your Joe out of a mug that you love!

Happy Whatever Day It Is of the Week . . . the Relativity of Friday

Boots the Badass Coffee Babe here.  And aiming from the hip like a shooting star to the center of life’s love and happiness on this Friday morning.

As determined by the calendar, today is Friday.  Or is it?  Do we assign a Day-Feeling to Time?  For some of us, it’s our real-time Friday.  For some of us, it’s our Tuesday.  Or Thursday.  Or Sunday.  We measure the days based on our perception of Relativity & Fun . . . Availability & Freedom . . . Choice & Priority . . . all relative to the Grand Scheme of How Life Flows.

That’s the thing about living a Lifestyle.  It’s different from Work.  And whether or not it’s my Friday or whether or not I am Lifestyling or Working, it’s always a great day to be part of the Human Race.

Enjoy today’s moments.  If you even take 3 minutes and 22 seconds to pause and just partake in some relaxation, isn’t that a rewarding way to extend some appreciating into your Day?  This video by OK Go is just plain fun. [OK Go makes the best videos!]  Enjoy the fancy of it all and Happy Friday-Feeling to you!
