At Pillsbury, one of our goals is to help you take a step back, celebrate everyday moments and see the extraordinary in the ordinary. Last weekend I experienced a moment myself. It was a perfect fall day – sunny, crisp air – and I was doing something out of the ordinary: sitting with a piping hot cup of coffee in a serenely quiet room. I call this out-of-the-ordinary because I have a very busy toddler. Leisurely coffees are a rarity.
So what did I do with this morning downtime? I opened the windows, turned on a favorite album and sat down with my computer. My objective: declutter. Next thing you know, I’m sifting through old footage of my son taking his first penguin-waddle steps across my living room floor. My eyes immediately misted. I was hit head-on with all the changes he’s gone through over the last three years: first smile, first steps, first words, first, “I love you, Mom.” It was extraordinary in the ordinary, and all it took was a good cup of coffee and a little time.
I’m leaving you with a few coffee-inspired ideas for this weekend. I hope that at least one gifts you with an everyday moment of your own.
