... I'm going to let you in on a little secret: every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it; don't wait for it; just let it happen. It could be a new shirt in a men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot, black, coffee. -- Special Agent, Dale Cooper

Despite the madness of the holiday season, there's always room for a bit of rest and relaxation. Coffee and cake are how I keep myself focused, effective, and most importantly grounded, in these fast paced times. Life's not about downing coffee in a to-go cup, while begrudging every car ahead of you in rush-hour traffic-- Make it a point to spend at least an hour a day relaxing (without your phone). Read something, dream, take a few minutes to purge your mind of the endless reminders, emails, and text messages that flood us on the daily. If the relaxation doesn't supercharge your routine, the caffeine and your last bite of pastry surely will.
While this is a coffee blog and therefore my duty to make you want to drink coffee, I will now do the unthinkable and instead direct you towards this delectable pastry. Don't feel guilty, you can always take the stairs!
