(I apologize for forgetting my blog again! I have some ideas about topics soon!)
One of my favorite things to do is journaling. I've written in many over the years. Words here and there to daily paragraphs to just quick jots. I haven't written much of anything recently, whether through blogging or journaling. Sometimes it is daunting to think of a paragraph to write or how in the world do you fill a page. So when I saw this journal today, I snatched it up!! It is a pocket sized journal with a page a day. You write down your favorite moments from/throughout the day! I am so excited about it! As John and I slowly start planning our wedding, and head towards marriage, I don't want to forget all this time we are enjoying engaged! So I am excited to resume journaling, and hopefully blogging. Remind me if I forget to do either! 😉

I haven't done any white tea so here is today's! Rishi's white organic peach blossom tea! The white tea is "infused with peach, tangerine, and aromatic blossoms". All in all, a delightful loose leaf!
Post Script - this mug came from the Genesee Country Museum 😊

Today's cup of tea is actually just chrysanthemum blossoms! It had a light flavor, and was quite delicious. I have my "Little Mole" mug from childhood. It is from the Czech Republic where my aunt is from. 😊

Harney & Sons Blueberry Green! I got this at work for mom recently and it is sooooo good! It is a green tea with lemongrass, blueberry pieces, cornflowers, and natural flavors. A lovely rejuvenating cup of tea!

Russian Spiced Tea, another tea from Naomi! The spices sounded particularly delicious today! 😊 It is also a good day for iced tea, so Dad started some.
Anyone who knows me, knows I love War and Peace! 😊 Which of course was written by Leo Tolstoy. The side of the box talks about him a little bit.
"What Tolstoy novel would be complete without a little tea?
In 1689 Russia and China signed a treaty making peace and defining their borders. Soon tea began to arrive in European Russia by camel caravan, traveling 11,000 miles from China. Usually taking 16 weeks, the larger caravans ranged from 200-300 camels. Outpaced by the opening of the Suez canal in 1869, with the completion of the Trans-Siberian Railroad in 1900 the camel caravans virtually disappeared overnight. Tea survived the revolutions of 1917, and is still a popular drink in Russia today."

Today's cup is a delightful Ginger Peach. My throat is sore from allergies this morning, so a hot cup of tea sounded perfect! I've never had this tea before, but I always enjoy "The Republic of Tea". 😊 According to the tin, this particular tea was voted an "Outstanding Beverage" at the "International Fancy Food Show"! Aren't we prestigious this morning?😉

Today we have an herbal tea! "Christmas in Paris" is a herbal tea with cocoa shells, peppermint, lavender, chocolate, and vanilla. I like to send tea with my letters to people and this is one of my friends' favorites. 😊 A delightful cup after a long day at work!
If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast. ~ Ernest Hemingway

A lovely cup of lavender sencha with my fiancé! We enjoyed it while we watched Herbie goes to Monte Carlo. Lavender is a good way to relax in the evening. I've had a lot of green tea the past couple days so I shall have to have a cup of white or black tea tomorrow. 😊

Today I have two cups of tea! When we went to Dunkin Donuts there was a mix up in our order so we ended up with a delightful sencha matcha hot green tea, and our favorite iced tea! Im very happy with my tea! Definitely will order it on purpose sometime. 😊

Today's cup of tea is a simple cup of tea! Just a plain English Teatime to end my night. ☺ I wanted Earl Grey to enjoy with my Star Trek episode, but not so late at night so hence the quiet cuppa!❤

A delicious loose leaf oolong to start my day! Today I had "Ti Guan Yin". Im always a sucker for oolong. The flavor fills your mouth and warms you to your toes! It is such a delightful cup, I think I will have a second.
"The best days are when the only problem is to decide on a cup of tea or coffee."

Today's cup of tea is a loose green tea called "Tomo Sencha". It's a grassy tea, with a light flavor. Definitely a refreshing cup! Nothing compares to a cup of loose leaf tea!!!!😍

I sorta vanished after March, so I figured I would post in June! "What should I post?" I thought to myself. Tea! Everyday I shall share a cup of tea with you, a different one each day, and my opinion on it. Today is a tea I received for my 18th birthday from a good friend. It is called "Novel Tea" and each one has a book quote on it. This one has the following:
"...what is the use of the book," thought Alice, "without pictures and conversations?" ~ Lewis Carroll
😊 see you tomorrow!

I couldn't decide how to wrap up my March Musings, but I finally did.
Today, John was the best. He came and helped out with some things, took me to run an errand, got slightly lost on an adventure on a very back road home, took care of me and made dinner so I could go to work and clean our ice cream machine, where he then waited for me so he could take me home. ❤ If all that isn't love, I don't know what is. I am so thankful for having him around when I need encouragement or a hug or a hand. ❤ So to end this March Musings, I just want to say how much I appreciate this sweet fiancé of mine!!!!❤
Thank you, Sweetheart! I love you!!!!
