I cannot possibly start the day without a cup of coffee, preferably two cups. There’s nothing better on a cold morning than a steamy cup of java, or as I like to call it “liquid nectar of the gods.” My husband puts a pot on for me so that it’s nicely brewed and waiting when I make my entrance into the kitchen. Ah, heaven in both aroma and taste! Fortunately, I can enjoy my coffee at home most days, but for those occasions – my son’s early morning soccer tournament, for example – when I need to be out the door early, there’s the Marilyn tumbler. It keeps my coffee hot and prevents me, the klutz that I am, from spilling scalding liquid all over myself. Plus, it’s curvy in its own sexy way like Marilyn Monroe, which makes me chuckle each time I take a sip. But my favorite part about Marilyn is that she doesn’t hold a mere 12 ounces of java or even just 16 ounces, but a whopping 18 ounces of the piping hot beverage of my choosing. Which means that I have the energy I need to get through my morning. And that is why I simply love my Marilyn.
