As a blogger, I love getting to know the people behind the blogs. One of the most rewarding things about blogging and TPT is the connections I have made with other bloggers and sellers.
I refer to them as my blogging buddies - and they have impacted me immeasurably through their advice, encouragement, and inspiration.
While it's so rewarding to glean teaching ideas from my blogging buddies - it's also fun to read something non-teachery.
To get to know small tidbits about their regular lives.
Molly from Classroom Confections has a fun new linky called
"My Personal Side." This week she's asking bloggers to share their favorite cup or mug,
I'm going to share my favorite of each :)
Here's my favorite cup - usually filled with Diet Dr. Pepper,
peach iced tea, or water:
I got this cup in New York City when I went to see my one of my all-time favorite musicals, Wicked. It reminds me of NYC life, exploring different neighborhoods, and seeing countless Broadway shows with friends and family. While I love living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I do miss the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.
I love the cup because it's light and easy to pick up with a baby in one arm :) I always drink with a straw - and a cold drink must have ice cubes in it!
And here's my favorite mug:
It's covered in Jane Austen quotes and is usually filled with hot apple cider, hot chocolate, or tea. Coffee makes it's way in there occasionally - but only with lots of sugar and creamer :)
I love me some Jane Austen - I have read Pride & Prejudice way too many times. I collect different copies of the book - I think I'm up to 8 :) To me, the Jane Austen mug epitomizes rest and relaxation: a cup of tea and a good book - it just doesn't get any better than that!
When I am drinking tea, I love to use my cute little infuser buddy:
