Coffee… Oh how I’ve missed you!
Coffee has been in and out of my life for the past ten months or so. The times that it’s been out have been so sad. I love my coffee! Not only do I love the taste and the little extra energy jolt I get from it, but I also enjoy the moments that surround coffee.
The coffee dates with friends.
The quiet time with God while sipping on my coffee.
The blog reading with my coffee cup in hand.
The sound of coffee brewing in my kitchen.
I swore off coffee for the first trimester of my pregnancy, and had the occasional cup throughout my second and third trimesters. I had read about the controversial affects of caffeine on pregnancy, and decided the every-once-in-awhile cup of coffee wouldn’t hurt me. Then Hunter was born a couple months ago, and the thought of him not sleeping due to an upset tummy or the affects of the caffeine made me cringe. I needed all the sleep I could get, so I wasn’t willing to risk it.
Then finally, I went for it. I sent out a tweet asking if nursing mamas drank coffee and if they noticed an affect on their babies. The general consensus was a resounding NO. Hallelujah!
So, for the past week or so, coffee has been back in my life, and I am loving it! The extra energy jolt in the morning to get me going is definitely appreciated, and I am back to enjoying my devotions and blog reading with coffee in hand.
I <3 coffee.
