Each month, JUST LIVE IT posts a photo challenge of sorts, posing a question of readers and asking us to capture the answer in picture-form. I missed the first installment but wanted to get in on the second–and what better day than the one after I stayed up too late watching the Oscars.
For this round, Nicole asks her readers which beverage helps to jump start the day. The answer for me is so obvious that even Jude could shout it out without much prompting:
Every morning I stop at Dunkin’ Donuts for a medium tea with cream and sugar. It’s such a predictable habit that the drive-thru attendant practically has it ready for me before I get there. In this photo, I’m cheating a bit as it was a morning that I was able to enjoy my vice from the couch. I’m including the TV in the background because I have another secret: I have a small crush on Willie Geist from the Today Show, and thus, he also plays a big part in my daily routine. And last, you’ll notice my super comfy, red slippers. It just isn’t a happy winter day unless I get to shuffle around the house in them.
I am not a morning person, and I never will be–much to Mike’s chagrin. So, it makes sense to throw in whatever items help to make it cheerier/less painful. When you’re chasing around a toddler and trying to get out the door less than twenty minutes behind schedule, you need any boost you can get.
What morning rituals or routines enable you to wake up and feel good about the impending day?
