So we can all agree: What a year. 2016 was the worst, or a complete mess, or a garbage fire of epic proportions, or at the very, very least, a doozy. From unprecedented political tumult to a string of upsetting celebrity deaths and everything in between, this year made us all hope and pray for better luck next year. (Though, well: That isn't looking great either.) I think we're all eager to wipe the slate clean, and look forward. And one of the best ways to do that is with a brand spanking new calendar. Specifically: a brand spanking new breakfast calendar. 

There are a few things that are still inarguably good in this world: Toast, fresh out of the toaster, and just waiting for butter and jam, for example. Or an egg from your odd but lovely neighbor's backyard. Or a bowl full of fruit, ready for chomping. So in this brave new world of 2017, I suggest you double down on the things that make the world and your mornings just a little bit better, and look for the same things in your daily calendar. Who needs more cute kittens or sprawling vistas plastered with misattributed inspirational quotations, anyway? When you have a calendar on a coffee mug, certainly not you.
