Just Never Give Up.

Happy National Coffee Day!

I love Thursday, make it a great one loves. Happy National Coffee Day, one of my favorite days of the year, I will celebrate with a Pumpkin Spice Latte! The weather is still pretty humid and crappy here in New York City, like I said earlier this week, I'm ready for some cooler weather.

When I got home yesterday I had a package from my very thoughtful Manfriend, he sent me a book for bloggers called, Blogging for Bliss. It's such a sweet book and it has so many helpful tips on how to improve your blog. I've been planning a Jeans and Tees and Travel and Cakes revamp and now I think it's going to come sooner then later.

My New Blogging Book...Thanks Manfriend aka Kyle!

Last night I took a trip to PetSmart and picked up some puppy stuff to send over to Kyle. I actually got nervous while picking out the right supplies, reading everything carefully. Something about having another life in my hands, freaked me a little. I picked up a Golden Retriever 101 book, maybe this book will calm my fears. As I've told my Manfriend, I don't need my dog turning out like Marley from, Marley and Me, haha.

Must Read!

In honor of National Coffee Day, today's quote comes the old Starbucks "The Way I See It" cups. I've used a "The Way I See It" cup quote before and I wish Starbucks would bring this back, what a great way to start your day, a fresh cup of coffee and an inspiring quote. Bring it back Starbucks!

Anyway, this quote on a cup is from Ultramarathon Runner, Dean Karnazes. He's is one of my running idols, who I had the privilege of meeting him last October at the Chicago Marathon. This is one inspirational quote and I have to share it with you.

It's simple, life gets hard but never ever give up.


Run when you can, walk when you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up. 
- Dean Karnazes
