I was so happy to drink from my favorite Christmas mug again yesterday!
It’s the perfect size, has a curved lip (which for some reason makes the coffee taste better), and I just generally love it.
So . . . what exactly makes this mug post-worthy?
This year, he actually explained the rule to my daughter.
We packed up our every-other-day-0f-the-year mugs in the box that stores Christmas mugs for the other 11 months. And magically, because of the switcheroo/one-in-one-out process, there’s plenty of room in the cabinet to hold all the mugs we need for the holiday season without even needing to stack or shove or strategically arrange.
(Magically, but not magically at all.)
And I’m reminded again how wrong I used to be about the way I valued stuff. I thought I valued it because I kept more of it. Turns out, I appreciate “stuff” so much more when I purge down to only the pieces I truly love.
Who woulda thought?
