You might remember the fact that Sean and I were searching for an old “It’s better in the Bahamas” 70s mug? No? Well, I’m too lazy to go back through my archives and find it…maybe I will later. But right now? It’s 8am and I just now got my coffee so it’ll have to wait.
In any case, Sean used to have this fabulously retro 70s mug with a silhouette of palm trees and a couple walking on the beach and it was from the infamous “Better in the Bahamas” collection. His mom accidentally threw it out a few years ago and we’ve been searching tirelessly for it ever since.
While at my parents house last Christmas, we were making coffee and found this mug:
It’s not from the Better in Bahamas collection–BUT it has a very similar 70s beach vibe and Sean and I fell in love with it right away. My parents stared at us as though we were weird–especially since they had gotten us a hand painted collection of glassware that we were thankful for, but not nearly as excited about as their old, used, stained mug. They happily gave it to us and every morning we fight over who can get to this mug first. Usually I lose since Sean wakes up at an ungodly hour daily.
But every now and then, I’ll come out of the bedroom rubbing my eyes and there waiting for me on the counter is this mug with steaming coffee and a post-it note with a heart. Ok, so I lied about the post-it note…that’s so not Sean’s style. But I like to think that there’s a figurative post-it note that we both know might as well be there.
