CSS Base

Vendor Prefixing

Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

+ add another resource


Babel is required to process package imports. If you need a different preprocessor remove all packages first.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

<h1>First, coffee</h1>       
<p>Our first date was Sunday morning coffee at the Starbucks on Thayer Street. It wasn’t the coffee that sparked the magic per se, but sitting, lingering over a cup, over laughter, over a story—16 years later that magic is still strong. Over time our coffee beans have changed—we’ve been getting them from Borealis now for a while—but the morning routine largely hasn’t. I'm up around 5:15 or 5:30, shower and get ready. Grind the beans, set up the coffee maker, turn on the timer, wake up the pups. They’re older now, so it takes some bribery. Our walk usually goes from 6 to 7:15 or so. It’s a little longer now that Tristan has slowed down a bit. Coffee brews while I’m walking, ready by the time I get back. Feed Tristan and Tillie, and then pour two cups (one black, one with almond milk). We have a collection of diner mugs from places we’ve been or just like, and I always try and pick a matching set. Upstairs, give Ellen her cup, and sit while she finishes getting ready. <em>First, coffee</em></p>
