To top off this gloriously dismal day, my stomach is a little achy. Trust me when I tell you that I have been numero uno when it comes to being the happy-go-lucky, positive and affirming one in my office recently. It seems all I've been listening to is complaining these past couple of days...so the rain really isn't helping my case at the moment. However, I'm not forgetting to count the many blessings in my life...because all I see are clear skies ahead and good things to come:
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34
Despite the cold or the elements, there is one thing that helps soothe me: a cup of tea. The staple of my "food cabinet" (it literally is a mini pantry) is green tea. Some are avid coffee drinkers; I drink green tea second only to water. Give it to me straight, no milk or sugar...with a little Adele or Frou Frou playing on my Pandora in the background.
Ahhh it keeps me going. Who doesn't love a little revitalization in a cup? I like trying new flavors of tea and love the idea of creating my very own tea box. I started looking into some ideas for how to store tea's in my cabinet. Since it's starting to look like Tupperware took over, I want to add a little pop to the way I store my food:
I love the idea of a personalized tea box!
Another fun way to stock up on your favorite tea flavors!
I love the pattern/colors that make this tea box so unique!
I'm starting to think I want to host a tea party. In fact, I will be attending one very soon! I love how many cultures partake in drinking tea as a common way of socializing. Why don't Americans do more of this?! (FYI: I am in no way supporting the "tea party" movement; but I am supporting the idea of drinking more tea :) No, it doesn't need to revolve around older women wearing fancy hats and drinking out of small teacups with their pinky fingers sticking out...but don't even pretend like you don't secretly want to put on pearls & eat finger sandwiches with your girlfriends.
Out with the old...
...in with the new...
...and then some!
