Can you hear that jingle in your head? “The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup!” Does anything say ‘coffee’ more then that? Its classic! We are so happy to partner with Folgers today to talk about how much we love our coffee and announce their campaign for a new jingle {hang on for information about that}.


Anyway, as I {we} write about quite a bit here, I {we} love to entertain and especially have houseguests. While having weekend guests gives us the excuse to fix a nice meal and have a glass or two of wine and catch up with our friends over dinner, with overnight guests the next morning is also such a nice relaxing time.

flowers and breakfast

In our former home we’d wake up and sit on the front porch with our friends or family, drinking coffee and catching up before starting our adventures. Even in winter we just brought out the blankets and of course, tons of hot coffee. In our new house we have a pretty, private backyard and we’ve been really enjoying how peaceful it is in the mornings.

I put together this little breakfast for some guests the other day, it was the perfect time to relax and reconnect over a simple breakfast and coffee. We sat outside, enjoyed a nice spring day and listened to some uplifting music and it day started off perfectly. It really was the best part of waking up!

These yummy, easy mini-frittatas were from Terry. She served them recently at her son’s baptism and they were so good, I immediately made them again. We’ll be back with the recipe soon. They are perfect for breakfast with fresh fruit and some blueberry muffins, and coffee of course!


So now that we’re all thinking about coffee and I have the Folgers jingle running through your head, I can tell you that Folgers is sponsoring a contest to find a new spin on the famous jingle. Do you think Folgers will find one that is as catchy and has such a long lifespan? What do you think about when you hear it? I know for me, I immediately go to the Christmas commercial when the brother returns Christmas morning from “Deepest Africa” to surprise his family. It seriously gets me every time–but it’s such a classic! Kudos to Folgers for fostering musical creativity in today’s upcoming musicians to find a new talent to create just the right jingle. And, you all can have a say in who the winner is of the Folgers Jingle Contest.
