The Wife Replaces The Girlfriend

“The Girlfriend” paired with cinnamon-sugar toast at Trouble Coffee Co.


Last weekend’s trip to San Francisco left me thirsty for more Trouble (as in the coffee company).

To take me back, I decided to treat myself today to “The Girlfriend” – Trouble’s so-called lavender tea with honey and steamed milk (and a touch of vanilla). I LOVE lavender so I happen to have a jar of Cloister lavender honey in my reserves (the shelf the kids can’t reach).  With a few adjustments, I believe I may have just perfected “The Girlfriend” and I’m now calling her “The Wife.” This, my friends, is what I call Mommipop, the perfect pick-me-up for a sleep-deprived mom. Pure joy in a cup!
