IF: breakfast



I know all about the importance of breakfast and most days I do get some, but really, for me what breaks the fast (and the sleeping) is coffee. I guess you could call it an addiction. I blame the place where I grew up. Oh yes, Coatepec is all about coffee.

Today (july 20) is Día Del Amigo (Friends Day) in Argentina, so I am a bit melancolic today, about missing my friends in Buenos Aires, where I lived for a year until a month ago or so. But hey, tomorrow is my birthday, so no time for sadness! Plus look at what my cool parents in law sent to me yesterday:


I love that they included that warning, I guess they know me pretty well!


Happy friends-day to all of you!

This is wonderful! It really captures how I feel about coffee in the morning in such a fun and whimsical way. I think I feel like some coffee now.

Hi! Thank you for the very kind comment. LOVE this (and coffee). In fact, it reminds me I missed my cup today so I'm going to have one tonight... caffeine and all. "Hello World!" I love it. That's exactly how coffee makes me feel.

Happy Birthday!

There is a project I want to do is to draw everything from one day: breakfast, work, lunch, clothes, dinner... I really enjoy your free hand drawing and the colours are amazing! Congrats!
