Sunday Morning Espressos

Aren’t these adorable little espresso shot glasses?

I’m envisioning a new family tradition – Sunday morning espressos. I’m thinking that I’ll fire up the stovetop espresso maker late Sunday morning, fill up these little babies, and see if I can get the family to come out of the woodwork to meet at the kitchen island for a mini coffee break. Sounds like a fun idea, don’t you think? Now these bright ideas of mine don’t always work out, but I always like to keep hoping.

This set was a souvenir we picked up from Pylones, the French store known for their colourful and whimsical take on everyday objects. Actually, the girls picked them up for me as a surprise. I love when that happens – they get their dad to pony up the cash for a prezzie, and spoil me with something sweet. They picked out these 4 glasses for me, and an adorable Eiffel tower cellphone charm. Fun!

The glasses have been sitting on my kitchen counter since our trip in March. I’m going to give the new tradition a go this Sunday. And if no one shows up at the kitchen counter, it will be 4 espressos for me. Probably followed by a supercharged, espresso-fueled bout of lecturing the girls about cleaning their rooms. Serves them right for not showing up for the new family tradition!
