My October Sips

Let me preface this by saying, it isn’t my fault Harney & Sons, Adagio Teas, T2, and DavidsTea all had amazing sales and/or sent me amazing coupon codes the week of my birthday. It is my fault that I purchased so much tea that… Continue Reading “My October Sips”

Gardens & Green Tea

There is something overwhelming about Springtime. I’m sure I bring it on myself after six months of hibernation, but the rate at which tasks are added to my To Do List makes me withdraw from the world. Thankfully, family came for a visit, and… Continue Reading “Gardens & Green Tea”

A Day Off with Books & Tea

Yesterday was an ideal day off– simultaneously relaxing and productive. The kitchen is spotless and lemon-scented, all of the laundry is washed, the groceries have been purchased and put away, and I still had time to finish an enthralling cozy mystery, check out novels… Continue Reading “A Day Off with Books & Tea”

Lemon Meringue Green Tea is the Cat’s Meow

Keeping Cozy with the Reading Nook Blend

Michigan has enjoyed a warm Autumn this year– “warm” being a relative term; although, temperatures did peak at a toasty 70 degrees on Friday. Of course, they also plummeted to the 30s on Saturday, and we experienced our first snowfall of the season. But… Continue Reading “Keeping Cozy with the Reading Nook Blend”

Tea Talk with Author Kristin Bartley Lenz

Yesterday, I wrote a rave review for The Art of Holding On and Letting Go by Kristin Bartley Lenz. It’s a wonderful debut novel about loss, the meaning of “home”, and the healing force of nature, rock climbing, and friendship. In the beginning of the novel,… Continue Reading “Tea Talk with Author Kristin Bartley Lenz”

Happy Birthday Tea and a Belated Birthday to Me!

Life lately has been a bit of a blur. All summers tend to be since its busy season at work. Most days, I just want to come home and spend as little mental energy as possible, which means I’ve been avoiding reading and blogging… Continue Reading “Happy Birthday Tea and a Belated Birthday to Me!”
