Who knew I had that many Disney mugs in my cupboard and it would be so much fun to post a different one each day? And did you know #Disneymugs was an actual thing?
The idea came from a friend, who had posted about her morning coffee, her missing Disneyland and her mugs from her trip. I had one similar and joined in with her that morning. And then something clicked.
With us all homebound, I saw how people were sad to not go to Disneyland or not be able to go anywhere for that matter. I pulled out a mug I hadn’t used in a long time, put my tea in it, then took a picture of it and posted it. People commented and fun interaction ensued. The next day I choose a different one and I knew I wanted to keep sharing. It seems so small, but in that first post, I found something that added much needed cheer to my day. And it seemed to do the same for others.
And as it turned out, I had way more Disney mugs than I thought! And I wasn’t using them!
When I picked the hashtags, I didn’t know #Disneymugs was a thing. Nor did I know #mugshots was, either. It was just something I thought would be fun, especially with all of us home self-quarantining ourselves. A little way to be creative and change up the routine each day.
And my friends liked it and joined in.
Who knew I could get so much joy out of selecting a new mug to use every morning. And taking a picture to share. And then having it sit on my desk all day and make me smile every time I looked at it.
Oh the joy that comes from the little things, right?
Some of our mugs are really old. To the point I have no idea where or when we got them. With others, the memory is burned into my brain because of how we came to acquire it, whether it was on a special trip or to celebrate a specific event.
Whatever the occasion, it’s been fun to reach way back into my cupboard and actually use all of them.
So without further ado…
…here is our family’s collection of Disney mugs:
Do you have any of these? or see a favorite?
Our current favorite is the Baby Yoda one, which is a brand new addition. We gave that one to my husband for his birthday.
Hope this gives you a little bit a cheer, much like the cheer I’ve felt in putting it all together.
