I spilled coffee all over my white shirt. My first reaction, like anyone’s would be, was a profanity, but then I laughed at myself, took it as a sign, and decided to call my blog ‘Coffee Stains’. The more I thought about it, the more fitting it seemed.
First, I love coffee. As a morning person and a generally pretty busy person, nothing is better than a hot cup of coffee first thing in the morning. I love the smell of coffee, the taste of coffee, coffee shops, coffee mugs, coffee dates, etc.
Second, I spill things a lot. I’m not a careless, clumsy person, but sometimes my mind wanders for just a moment and a little bit (or sometimes a lot) of whatever was in my hands ends up on the floor or all over me.
Third, I started getting into blogs as a way to pursue a healthier, happier lifestyle. Here comes the corny metaphor: life, like coffee, is something I love, even though it often results in messy spills. I want my blog to be a place where I remind myself to live a life full of health, happiness, and inspiration and not to sweat the little spills.
