Coffee and Blueberry Muffins:
In the early morning before the world is awake I like to make myself a very strong cup of coffee and nibble on a warm comforting muffin. Today it’s a simple blueberry muffin and a strong cup of coffee as I sit in my yard thinking about how peaceful the world is before my kids wake up and I start my hustle. It’s a form of meditation…appreciating how still the world can be if you allow it!
