Originally Published: 

The upcoming weekend marks two very important occasions. First of all, it's the first official full weekend of fall, which means that you are now able to do all of the autumn activities you've been waiting for, like apple picking, taking pictures of pumpkins, and decorating for Halloween. Second, on Sunday, Sept. 29, it's National Coffee Day, which is a very special holiday for anyone who feels like they survive on caffeine. National Coffee Day is a time to celebrate all of the wonderful things about coffee: the way it wakes you up almost immediately, the delicious smell it brings no matter how it's served, the ability to add so many different flavors to it, the way it can warm you up or cool you down when necessary... and so much more. So, obviously, this is the perfect day to post a cute photo of your coffee mug, with the most clever Instagram caption just for National Coffee Day.

It's not hard to get a great picture for National Coffee Day — most cafes now make lattes and cappuccinos aesthetically pleasing with bright mugs and fun designs in the foam. Even if you aren't buying a cup out, you can easily make a cozy image out of your homemade coffee while cuddled in your bed. Whatever image you choose, though, you definitely need a good caption to go along with it. The below ideas will really capture how you feel about coffee while also ensuring you get as many likes as possible.
