sites i love: notes on my coffee

::shameless self promotion::

A few months back I asked boyfriend to get me coffee,  he returned with a sweet little surprise on the bottom of my cup, a misspelled note of love.  Since then he has been writing on every one of my coffee cups. 

I have been trying to figure out what to do with all of these little love notes, I  can’t keep every coffee cup so I have been taking a picture every day to chronicle his efforts. 

So without further adieu, I give you notes on my coffee.
