I loved that mug. My mom had given it to me years ago and I used it all the time for my morning cappuccino. The memories we've shared together...me sipping away while enjoying a colorful breakfast, reading a book, or just carrying it around while I follow my toddler through the house. A perfect wrap-your-hand-around-it mug with a colorful picture of one of my favorite flowers, sunflowers, and the word 'Italy' italicized boldly along the side.
The irony...I had been meaning to clean out the mug shelf for awhile. It's a shame that it had to be decided for me which had to go.
