Happy Humpday Friends!
Happy National Gardening Day! 🪴 🌸
An absolutely beautiful day to be outdoors in the garden and enjoying nature! ☀️ 😃
Gardening, flowers, vegetables and growing decorate my yard and water my soul. 💧🙏
Did you know? 🙋♀️
Gardening offers all kinds of health benefits.
When you use your hands toil with soil, seeds, plants and flowers, get your hands dirty (I usually use garden gloves) dig, plant and water...you reap (pun intended) some wonderful benefits. After you’re work is done, you can sip and savour your beverage and treats and enjoy the sun! 😃 🍵 ☕️ 🍷 🍰 🧁
Here are a few listed for you:
Patience is a virtue while you wait for your hard work to bear fruit, flowers and vegetables. 🕰 ⏰
“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” - Audrey Hepburn

Happy Wishlist Wednesday! Or is that Wine Wednesday?!
“The only time you should ever look back is to see how far you’ve come.”
Do you sometimes wish you were farther along than you are?
Yet, when you look back, you can see how far you’ve come, right? Do you have days where you think/feel it all seems black and white instead of bright and colourful? I know I sure do. You can remind yourself every little step forward counts and makes a difference.
Listing a few wishes and goals for you:
Leave a legacy of inspiration and hope to everyone that has been placed in my life and shares this journey with me.
Always be a source of encouragement to others.
Be a blessing to everyone I meet.
Empower and support as many people as I can.
Empower and support as many women as I can via Friendshipbridge.org
Pursuing your passions “light” you up! They bring meaning to your life and the lives of others.
Sharing your abundance and blessings, whether it’s a smile, a virtual hug, a virtual cuppa, a present, a word of encouragement or...you choose.
Your passions are your legacy. Passion comes from an outpouring of the interests and ideas that make a difference in your life. Finding and pursuing your passion allows you to see your destiny clearly. This is what became abundantly clear to me with creating #teaboxes Gifts of love with profound love and purpose. You will feel fulfilled in your life by following your passions wholeheartedly.
“Leaving a legacy is an important part of your life's work. A legacy develops from a life dedicated to self-reflection and purpose. What will be revealed and what will endure is a truthful and value driven body of living.” Joan Moran, Contributor to Huffington Post
“ Three keys to more abundance living, caring about others, daring for others, sharing with others.” - William Arthur Ward (1921 - 1994) American motivational writer.
What are some of the goals/things on your wishlist, in your personal and/or professional life?
Share your wishes below! You can inspire and empower others with your words!
Thank you kindly.

Happy Sunny April Monday!
How’s your Monday going?
Technical issues happening over here. Not fun. Thought of procrastinating and “taking some time off.” 😖 Wanted to run outside and play! No; not happening! That won’t work. Worked through it. Had a real good talk with myself and told those shi**y thoughts and doubts take a long hike!! Get ‘er done girl!
While many dislike Mondays, it can actually be the best day of your week. 😊
According to research, when you set a new goal or start a new project on a Monday, you are more likely to follow through with our goal and/or projects. You are more motivated at the beginning of the week.
Your Monday morning mindset and thoughts determine the tone for your week. Envision yourself improving, becoming stronger, and being happier and following your dreams! 💕
Time to #monslay move forward and do the work I love doing!
Joyfully sourcing, curating and creating teaboxes especially for you! ❤️
Think of the pleasure; all your senses that will be engaged when you enjoy your treats and treasures in your #teaboxes
Think of the joy the women will experience when they are empowered and supported.
When you think of the people you help in your business; doesn't’ that make you feel like, oh yeah! I got this! I am doing this!
What do you do when you feel frustrated and want to procrastinate? 😝
What are some lessons you have learned from struggles in life and in business?
Share your thoughts. Share your ideas for gifts you want in a #teabox
Go outside and let your senses run wild in the beauty of nature!

“I must have flowers, always, and always.” - Claude Monet - 1840 - 1926
There is something special about fresh flowers brightening up your home! It has long been known that being surrounded by nature and flowers boosts our moods, reduces our stress levels and aids in a restful night of sleep.
The link to the colour of flowers and their sweet aromas are part of the mental health benefits. Flowers encourage creativity, ignite inspiration and help with memory and problem-solving. When some of these flowers are taken as tea, our bodies are cooled and relaxed. Flowers and plants make you feel as though you are in nature, even though you may be in a city dwelling away from the beauty of nature.
Bright-coloured flowers, particularly red, are connected to concentration, while blue flowers encourage free thinking. Bright orange or yellow flowers, known for their antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties, are another cheerful colour to brighten up your space.
On this Friday, I am focusing on the Peace Lily. A showy flower, herbaceous and beautiful house plant, with “white sails'' flowers, and glossy leaves. This plant has a long bloom season, does well in lower light conditions, although it flourishes better in bright, filtered light. Be careful not to place it in direct sunlight. ☀️
There are several different symbolisms and emotions associated with the Peace Lily.
Peace. Hope. Purity, Prosperity. Healing. Tranquility. It’s often given as a gift signifying sympathy, longevity, rebirth, and beauty. 🤩
One of my Peace Lily plants has a brown plaque on the “white sail” and it’s beauty is somewhat diminished by this. My green thumb must have gotten a little wilted. 😂
Which flowers do you love to have in your home? Which ones are most meaningful to you? Which flowers will you choose to #celebratethespecialmoments this Easter?
😃 🙏 ❤️ 💕 🍵☕️💐🌸🌺🌼🌹 🌱 🪴

Happy sunny Humpday! 🌞
The week is half done. Thank you sun. The sky is blue. How are you?
Do you love flowers? What feelings do you experience because of sunny days and/or flowers? 💐
Flowers evoke happy feelings and optimism. Flowers have strong positive effects on our emotional well-being. Flowers feed compassion and spread joy! 🤩
Did you know that they also affect your dopamine, oxytocin and serotonin levels? Your happy brain chemicals are triggered by the beauty of flowers. Dopamine is the reward, oxytocin is the bonding hormone and serotonin is a mood stabilizer, and makes you feel good. 😃
Did you know that flower delivery and flower boxes increased 408 percent from March 2019 - 2020 according to Google and Pinterest? The beauty of flowers, their aromas, colours, and blooms are emotional. In this time of COVID-19, we are drawn to them more than ever before. They offer us comfort and make us feel cheerful, which we want and we need. They remind us to be present and live in the moment. 😌 🙏
You can bring Spring to your home on your windowsill or table, simply by planting bulbs in a teacup, teapot or any other favourite vessel you have.

Having recently experienced some moments of doubt, fear and “I’m not good enough”: crap creep in to my brain; I knew I had to let that S&*t go!! 💩 Get up, show up, stand tall, shine bright, share my true self, my heart, love, creativity, ideas and be real! No making myself small! 💪 No giving in to that useless crap and going backwards after so much progress has been made. Keep going and move forward in the direction of my goals, visions and dreams! Be rooted firmly like a tall tree and grounded in my purpose, my passion and my power. ❤️ 👀 💭 🚶♂️ 🌳
Be you! Be who you truly are! Share the beautiful, vulnerable, raw and real self with everyone! That is the beauty of you; your uniqueness.
As Shakespeare said: “To thine own self be true.”
Practicing gratitude, staying centered, keeping active, taking care of yourself, helping others, mindset and inner healing and follow your passion! 💕

Yeah! It’s Friday! FRI-YAY! 😃 🌞 💃
It’s also Lemon Chiffon Cake Day!
Did you know that? 💭
Harry Baker; yes that’s his last name, Baker 👨🍳 😊 (1883 - 1974) is credited with creating this recipe; an insurance salesman turned caterer. He kept the recipe a secret for 20 years! He then sold it to General Mills, and the recipe spread in the 1940’s and 50’s via marketing materials with the name “Chiffon Cake.” In 1948, it was released and published in a pamphlet with Betty Crocker.
Chiffon Cake: a fluffy, light dessert with a pleasing experience that dances on your palate. Bake it with lemon and you have a freshness and sweet yet tart taste on your tongue. An ideal complement/pairing with your Lemon Chiffon Cake is Earl Grey tea, one of the most recognized teas in the world. Thanks to the Oil of Bergamot, which gives this black tea it’s citrusy notes.

A few recipes are included here for you. Easy peasy. Lemon Squeezie.
New rule: Celebrate every Friday by eating cake!
