How was your weekend? Emmett and I decided we needed to get out of town for a reset. We ended up taking our camper south to enjoy the beautiful red rock landscape in Kanab. It was really nice to hike, spend time with friends, and we just enjoyed being outside all weekend. Upon arriving home, I had a few fun packages waiting on me… including some new goodies for our coffee bar! I’ve been on a major tea and coffee kick lately. I have coffee every morning and I’m afraid my coffee ritual may be coming to an end soon thanks to my ongoing health issues, but maybe it will be temporary? Fingers crossed for a short hiatus! Regardless, I’ve been sipping tea in the afternoon and it has been really refreshing- mint has been my tea of choice lately (perfect for spring). Today, I wanted to share some fun finds for the coffee bar and the essentials for creating an espresso station or nook in your kitchen. Click through for some morning inspiration…
If you remember (back in January), I shared our shelving update in the kitchen. We gave our coffee bar an aesthetic upgrade and I’ve been so happy with it! The shelving has been really functional for us and it looks much better. Our coffee bar gets a ton of use, as does our Barista Express. It’s going on 6 years old and I don’t know how we ever lived without this thing… it’s probably our most used item in the kitchen- well worth the investment. I gathered up all my coffee bar essentials from Amazon to put into a roundup for you…
Check out my top picks… everything is clickable, or you can shop using the links below the collage.

Coffee really has become a ritual for me. From grinding the beans and brewing to enjoying a hot cup outside on the balcony to welcome the day, it’s my favorite way to start the morning. It has turned into a way for me to begin the morning more slowly, set daily intentions, and have a little time for myself before diving into work. Does anyone else do something like this? I’m sure I’m not the only coffee drinker around here.
For more coffee and kitchen finds, check out my curated Amazon lists. I’ve been adding and updating lots of new things this past week, so it’s worth a peek if you’re looking to refresh your home this spring & summer! I also added lots of fun garden and planting finds, if you’re feeling spring inspiration outdoors. Or if you’re camping this season (like us), I’ve got top picks for that as well. I hope those resources continue to be helpful for you this spring & summer!
Here’s to a good, but busy week ahead! We’re crossing our fingers for smooth sailing. Emmett has his second surgery this week, I’ve got a few doctor appointments of my own, and we’ll be taking it easy as he recovers. If I’m slower to respond, that’s most likely the reason. Have a good one, friends!
