Morning Coffee

Morning Coffee on the porchI’ve been spending lots of time on our back porch lately. Even the early, chilly mornings. The flowers we added (and our new patio furniture from Target) really make the space much more inviting. I’m draw to the outdoors – to think, to breathe, to reset, to remember Truth.

The other morning the weirdest thing happened to me. It came in the form of a knock on the door at 7:00 in the morning. There was a second knock and I opened my eyes trying to figure out if this was a dream or not (we obviously don’t have kids because we were both still in bed.) There was one more knock and I hurried down the stairs throwing out my mouth guard (I know, cute right?!) and peeked the door open.

“Oh great! You’re home!” The mailman smiled at me and shoved a package into my hands. I thanked him, shut the door, and wondered what was so important 😉 I opened the package (after throwing my hair up and pulling my sweatshirt on) and discovered that there was a Thermos® of hot coffee packed inside. It was an overnight shipment of hot coffee ready for me to enjoy. That makes waking up a bit easier 😉

So I spent the morning sipping hot coffee on the back porch. Reading, resting, dreaming, and getting ready for the day. Mornings are not always that bad… and coffee helps a lot! National Thermos Brand Day is May 19 (AKA tomorrow) and YOU can enter to win an Overnight Coffee shipment of your own right to your front door!! Thermos® Brand, Brewed Coffee, and an extra bag of Dark Matter Coffee all included! To win, ENTER HERE!

  • That is so awesome! I wake up to already brewed coffee already day because my husband gets up before me. It’s a perfect way to start the morning! PS LOVE the mug! & the book!

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! That’s so fun! and me toooooooo!

  • What an interesting concept. We are going camping this week. Will they deliver it to an off-grid campsite in Northwest Colorado? 🙂

    • Oak & Oats

      That totally would be the best!! Or you get get it the day before and bring it with you 🙂 hehe

  • I love that they even have their own blend of coffee (with beautiful packaging)!

    • Oak & Oats

      I know!! So fun!!

  • how incredibly fun is that?!
    a thermos full of hot coffee delivered to your door?! WOW!

    • Oak & Oats

      hahah! I know right!?!

  • What a cool idea! I probably would’ve made my husband answer the door that early in the morning, 😉 but am glad to know you had a good surprise waiting on the other side of that door! Something I could get used to, for sure!

    • Oak & Oats

      hahah! I know right! I jumped up in that panic walk. lol. I was practically sleep walking!

  • That is so cool! Never heard of anything like that!
    I tried to click on the “enter” link, but it seems like there was no link attached? There was nothing to hover over and click.

    • Oak & Oats

      Oh yes! i must have forgot that link! But everywhere else you can tell because it is highlighted! I’ll add one there 🙂

  • If this is the package I would receive, I would not complain at all to be woken up by the mailman! Such a cute thermos and coffee sounds amazing. I would love to sit on my back porch and just enjoy the fresh air, sunshine, and plants around me ♥

  • Oh my gosh — that is AWESOME. What a great idea! Not to mention I seriously need that Patagonia is my life. 🙂

  • 7am? That mailman was on top of it! 8:40 for me and I was feeling the same way with 2 kids in bed with me lol. Love the back deck!

    • Oak & Oats

      hahah! Yes! We must have been early on his list! lol!!! Also thanks so much!!! It’s fun having it so colorful!

  • That mug is so cute! I feel the warmer weather pulling me outside more and more these days, too. I’m not a coffee drinker, but I do love sipping a good cup of hot chocolate or tea as I wake up.

  • WHAT?!?!??! That is fantastic! I need that magic in my life!

    • Oak & Oats
