I'm addicted to mugs.
I love mugs. I am not big on collecting things, but I can appreciate how a mug can make me remember a trip or a childhood memory. Since I am a complete coffee addict, I often pick a mug that reflects the mood I'm in.
I thought I'd share my mug moods with you today.....
This is a mug from a beautiful inn that just happens to be run by some family friends. We had my Dad's 50th Birthday party there and it was a weekend full of fun, friends and family. I enjoy the shape of this mug and the memories it brings back.

When my parents named me Jennifer, they thought they had picked such a unique name, they didn't know anyone named Jennifer. Sadly, about a kajillion other parents had the same thoughts that year. I started out as Jennifer and soon became a "Jenny".
Sometime around 6th grade, I decided that I was far too mature and cool and would now be referred to as "Jenn". I went with the double "n" to try and stand out just a little. Most of my fellow Jennifer, Jen and Jenn's ditched the "Jenny" and never looked back. I know we all have relatives that still call us by our old names, but they get a pass.
Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but I don't mind The Jenny like I used to, and so the return of...
