hello Monday...I need a cuppa...tea and travels

Hello Monday...
It's time to greet the week with a peek at what's going on here
 and say hello to all of you...
This week I want to talk tea and travels.
We all know I love tea...I drink it all day long by the pot, hot or cold, and my fave restaurant here in town is "Charlotte's Tea Room" 
(owned by my sister-in-law Joanne) and I get there every chance I can...
it is a perfect lunch, every time and the perfect cup of tea...
But when I am on the road, I am forever in search of another good cuppa...

If your feet find you in Canandaigua, NY please visit Rob O'Brien's new tea shop "Good Life Tea" where he sells fine, loose teas by the ounce.

 If you can't get there, fear not...his website is fab...
here's a link www.GoodLifeTea.com
and if you order with code EA20 at checkout...you get 20% OFF ...sweet!

 I was there recently for his wife Nancy Wiley's event "Tea at the Castle" (where yes, Rob did fabulous pot after pot of tea...)
and it was a true treat to experience his new store...
I came home with several new teas and a cold brew pot for the counter that has me enjoying them in the warmer weather. 
I am glad to know they also do mail order ...a good option for me
if I run out before I get back to Canandaigua this summer...
Congrats Rob, and hope all goes well! And thanks too, to Rob for all the wonderful samples he's sent us to include in our boxes...if you order form us in the next few weeks, you will find a sample of his wares tucked in our boxes with that 20% off coupon...love that!

Hello Monday...
Hello to road trips with friends and hello stops along the way...
this shop among them!

Hello Sue of Skippy Doodle Designs fame, love that you are up for anything!
(Sue has the dubious honor of having driven through the night with me on various Art Girls' RoadShow adventures and she makes the miles sweeter...)
Hello Canandaigua...and sweet shops and restaurants and amazing lake.
I cannot believe it took me this long to get there, 
and now I cannot wait to get back again!






Hello to the chores small and tall, tea makes them all more bearable.

Hello simple joys, like sipping tea as I work away...

Hello to trying new things... it's the best way to learn and I am all for that.

Hello summer, love that you are looming...
maybe they'll be some more road trips in the works!

Hello to all of you and hope the week is a good one for you whatever you might be up to...

xxoo Jen
