procaffeinating ?




…not really,,,  but…

i’m finding myself being totally off when i can’t practise my morning ritual. i know – it makes me sound like a grumpy old lady, and maybe it has something to do with age, but my weekday mornings are important to me, and if the day start out really great, the rest of the day usually stays that way.

after i get myself ready, drink my lemon water, make breakfast and lunches for my little favourites, we all have breakfast. after that, i take the kids to the school bus and walk fiona at the same time. usually for 30 minutes, depending on the weather.

when fiona and i return home, it’s a quiet house, and i love it. hubby has cleaned the kitchen most days, and i get ready for work right away. 3-4 times a week, i go for a 30 minute run, a quick shower, and then start work.


i make myself a cup of black coffee. sometimes if my sweet tooth is talking, i add a teaspoon of raw licorice to my coffee. a coffee and a big juice gets me started in a good way!

do you have a certain morning ritual?

have you ever tried licorice coffee?  …if not – you have to!
