virtual tea tuesday

i'm inviting you over for virtual tea this morning, won't you come?

don't think about your endless to-do list, your million and one things that need to be done.

just come, sit.

we can talk about how fast the kids are growing as we sip on chia tea.

i will listen as you talk about how desperate you  are for a date night, a hair-cut, a new pair of shoes.  and i will serve this:

we can laugh until tears roll down our cheeks...as good friends do.  i will confess that i need to exercise more, eat fewer sweets and more vegetables. i will confess that i read when i should be doing dishes...

then i will serve this and we will laugh at the irony.

and then we will hug and say we must do this again. we must make the time.

for a virtual tea.


all these yummy photos belong to etsy shops in this order:  cookoutsidethebox, honeyrunfarm, inkandpaperarts, and YummyAffair. Go check them out!  You will be glad you did. :)


  1. Thanks so much for including our honey! (And inviting me for tea)

  2. I loved this virtual tea - as I sit here with Actual tea in hand. The baklava looks delightful. I've never been brave enough to make it on my own, but perhaps now I will :)

  3. Jayne- all your honey, soaps, and produce look wonderful...I'm so glad I found your site. :)

    Megan- I've never made baklava either, but I want to!

  4. I smiled the whole time I read this! I love it, thank you for the wonderful tea date :-)

  5. I love this idea! I drank some chai latte this morning for our tea date without realizing it :)

    Hope you are having a fabulous day!

  6. That's so sweet :) I needed a virtual tea. Thanks!

  7. Oh maybe I would be a good idea to make baklava on my own, I usually find it too sweet. Thanks for the virtual tea.

  8. love the idea of virtual tea...never learned to drink the stuff (in the realish world), but always loved the idea of the little sweets and savories that go along with a tea party!

  9. I'm a little late for tea! These days I'm constantly behind and enjoyed taking a few moments to sit and visit with you.

  10. i just love the virtual tea idea! so cute : ) and chai is one of my absolute favorites!
