FutureStarrA cup of jo
The best cup of coffee always starts with a fresh, hot cup of jo. With this recipe, you'll make a simple blend of saffron and black tea. The flavors play off each other to make a soulful, aromatic cup of jo that celebrates the simple pleasures of home.A Cup of Jo is a New York-based lifestyle, fashion, design, and parenting blog by Joanna Goddard. Goddard began the site in 2007 and it now includes contributing writers and editors Caroline Donofrio, Jenny Rosenstrach, and Kim Rhodes, and formerly, Megan Cahn, Ashley C. Ford, Alexis Mainland, and Stella Blackmon.
A Cup of Jo was founded in 2007 by Joanna Goddard, who started the blog as a weekend hobby. When Goddard first started blogging she shared fun things she found online and wrote short "off-the-cuff" posts. Now, Goddard describes A Cup of Jo as an online magazine with long-form essays, house tours, beauty tutorials, career interviews, and discussions on larger issues.Goddard grew up in France, England, and Michigan before graduating from the University of Michigan in 2001.
Following her graduation, Goddard moved to New York City and worked at Cosmopolitan Magazine before launching the magazine Bene, which she ran from 2005 to 2007. After leaving Bene, Goddard wrote for a number of notable publications including Glamour, Elle, New York Magazine, and Cookie and started her blog, A Cup of Jo, as a weekend hobby.I’m sharing a full tour of our new house today on Cup of Jo! I’m going to be giving my own recap here on Oh Happy Day in the next week or two. It’s a little nerve wracking to show photos of your own home. I feel naked! You can see what it looks like before right here and here. (Source: ohhappyday.com)
Poor Maggy deserves a break: First, in Uncommon Grounds (A Maggy Thorsen Mystery, her marriage broke up when her dentist husband recently left her for his 24-year-old dental hygienist. Then, when Maggy begins a new life and a new business, her coffee shop was destroyed in a freak May blizzard in Brewed, Crude and Tattooed (Maggy Thorsen) ,and the re-opening nearly spoiled due to mayhem in From The Grounds Up (A Maggy Thorsen Mystery). But Maggy's not about to catch a break in "A Cup of Jo," the sixth novel in the series. Turns out the pretty and petite victim JoLynne, although married, was very promiscuous -- even bedding her sister's boyfriend and, according to rumor, Maggy's main squeeze, sexy Sheriff Jake Pavlik.
When she's not waxing jealous about promiscuous JoLynne, Maggy's worried about Milwaukee County Executive Wynona Counsel, who once dated Pavlik, too. It's not a pretty picture, but, considering Maggy's history -- she was oblivious of her ex's philandering -- it's understandable. There's this blog that I've been reading for a couple years now. It's called A Cup of Jo and I've linked to it a few times from Dear Sabrina, including a couple days ago. While I don't love all the posts (I'm not particularly interested in beauty and fashion stuff, as you may have guessed already), I like that it's a little flash of goodness every day. Most of the posts make me happy in some small way. I've gotten some good book recommendations, film and TV recommendations, and seen a ton of beautiful homes. The posts I love most make me think about something I hadn't thought of before, or think about something in a new way. (Source: mydearsabrina.com)
