love mugs {{a little valentine's giveaway}} xoxo

My husband does not drink hot beverages.
I love him anyway.  But, quite honestly, I don't understand.  So you don't like coffee.  That's fine.  But what about hot tea or hot chocolate or apple cider?  There are endless delicious options.  Am I right??

Nothing brings me comfort like pajamas and a hot beverage.  I don't drink much caffeine but you can be sure I will have something steamy brewing nearly every morning.  I am a mom and my kids are high-maintence so each cup averages 4 reheats in the microwave, but I'm not deterred.  In fact, every time I get my coffee or tea back to its original steamy state I feel happy all over again.  I know I will get at least 2 or 3 good sips out of it before I am needed again.  

Now we all know that the mug from which you drink your hot beverage is important.  I don't play around when it comes to this.  That's why I got all goofy happy when I tore into the boxes that arrived at my house this weekend.  They contained dozens of...are you ready for this???  
The perfect mug.

Do you see them, y'all?!?!?  Aren't they beautiful?!?  And oh my goodness...wait until you hold them in your hands.  They are a perfect fit.  And that's actually gold on there.  Straight up microwave-safe gold because...well...the reheats.

So here's the deal - 
My latest book begin. will be birthed into the world next month and at the heart of this book is my desire for us all to begin well.  I can't think of a better way to do that than with the perfect mug in hand every morning.  These beauties will not be available to the general public for a little while but I have 3 sitting on my counter ready to go to their new homes right now.  Tucked inside each one is a Starbucks gift card.  

It's Valentine's week so I thought is was a perfect time for us to share some love.  Tuesday morning I will put the mugs and gift cards in the mail to three lucky winners.  Anyone who makes a donation to Back Porch Press {in any amount!} over the next 24 hours is entered into the drawing.
