Coffee -- it's kinda my thing

By now you've probably heard that it's National Coffee Day. I'm feeling a little stressed because HOW DO YOU SQUEEZE ALL OF YOUR LOVE AND APPRECIATION INTO ONE TINY DAY?! As much as it feels like we've always been in love with coffee, it had to start somewhere right?

I remember being a kid and getting totally grossed out when my dad would order a black coffee (no cream or sugar?!) and then act like it tasted good. But then I matured into an adolescent and, more importantly, Gilmore Girls premiered when I was in 8th grade.

From the second Lorelei walked into Luke's in that striped knit hat begging for a 6th cup of coffee, it was love at first sight.

Within an hour, I'd become addicted to coffee, invested in a hair straightener, and realized I needed to run a bed and breakfast on the East Coast.

Imagine if Lor had been obsessed with Green Tea and jogging instead of coffee and burgers... Our lives would have taken a completely different turn, eh?

So, here's to you, Lorelei Gilmore. You taught me so much about love, family, friendship, looking super cute in a hat and mittens, and most importantly, to LOVE my coffee. Without you, I would not fully grasp the importance of this National Coffee Day.

For your listening pleasure, the Official Coffee Day Soundtrack. Obvs.

Now, throw your hair up in a pony tail while racing down the stairs in your blue jean shorty-shorts, go grab yourself a refill, and hit me up me on Twitter for coffee love each morning → @PluckyInLove. Cheers! ♥

Sarah, aka "Plucky", blogs on the reg, unless she's on vacation or there's a Pretty Little Liars marathon or she's mulling over the implications of the phrase "on fleek." She can't live without iced coffee, a portable phone charger, or equal pay. Say hello!
