Like every other summer that I can remember after becoming a mom of four, my life gets very busy this time of year. Between shuttling kids to their various activities, running the never ending household errands and that crazy little thing called work, sometimes I get frazzled. Ok, I get frazzled a lot of the time. So I recognize how important it is to stop and take a break once in awhile.
And honestly, I don’t have time to go do something crazy like sit on the beach and read a book all day long. Not that I wouldn’t LOVE to do that. I just don’t have the time. However, a break doesn’t have to be something time extravagant. It can be something as simple as going out on the back deck with a cup of iced coffee when no one is looking. And I’m not beyond locking myself into the bathroom if need be. A mom’s got to do what a mom’s got to do.
There is something therapeutic about sitting alone while drinking a bit of caffeinated icy goodness. It chills the mind.
So ,when the folks at Seattle’s Best Coffee asked if I’d share some info on their products, I thought it would be like a humanitarian thing to do.
Seattle’s Best Coffee offers up lots of different products to bring that coffee shop experience to your own kitchen. I myself prefer their Level 5 Dark and Intense Ground Coffee. But they have everything from a Level 1 Light and Crisp Roast to blends made special just for iced coffee. Lots of choices that help you bring a little bit of indulgence to your day.
After spending last week in Chicago, devouring the city a la Godzilla style, I’m keeping things light and simple the rest of the summer. So, my special mom break today was a simple cup of black iced coffee.
And using the Melitta Pour-Over Coffee Brewer that Seattle’s Best Coffee sent me, I was able to take my chill break right when I needed to. No fussing over an entire pot. One cup, just for me in a moment’s notice.
Just enough time for me to center down and prepare for the rest of my crazy day.
