How Do I Love Thee | Louisville Newborn Photographer

This month our blog circle was challenged with the theme food.  Fall is in full force in the Louisville Kentucky area.  There are many different foods that remind me of this time of year: caramel apples, hot cider, turkey and pumpkin pie (I know, those are technically Thanksgiving foods, but that’s all fall so bear with me!)  There is one “food” however that I truly hold near and dear to my heart and it only sort of counts as a food.  That, my friend, is coffee!  That’s right, coffee.  These days, there is nothing better than a warm cup of coffee at the start of my day.  When my babies were newborns I mistakenly thought that as they got older I could sleep longer in the mornings… wrong!  If you have toddlers, you’re probably laughing at my ignorance.  It’s ok, I deserve it.  🙂

Three small children later, I know all about those early mornings where everyone wakes up with 100% energy, everyone that is, except me.  Not to fear, coffee’s here!  Some call it a vice, I call it survival.  There are worse vices to have and I’m just fine with this one.

On very, very lucky days I get a chance to sneak outside and see the sun rising before the madness begins and while that may not be the same as a warm piece of pumpkin pie or a sugary dipped caramel apple it’s about the sweetest thing in the world to me right now.

Perhaps it’s the brief quiet that I experience on these mornings, perhaps it’s the warm sweet taste (I use a lot of creamer 😉 ) or maybe it’s just the big kick of caffeine that I’ve come to rely on, whatever it is, right now it’s my favorite food.  So, cheers to you morning cup of Joe, cheers to you!

Up next is my gal Stacy from Stacy Espinoza photography and her interpretation of our food theme.  Click on over; maybe she even picked a real food!  🙂
