“There are few things so pleasant as a picnic eaten in perfect comfort.” - W. Somerset Maugham - (1874 - 1965) English playwright, novelist, and short story writer.
Spring! These warm months are the ideal time for outdoor picnics, and celebrations! 🎉
What better outdoor pleasure to enjoy this beautiful weather (which will return soon) 🔜 😉 with than enjoying a picnic in the park or backyard? Don’t you love spring or summer gatherings with friends, food, and fun? ☀️
Did you know? fresh air and oxygen are beneficial for memory and concentration; all of nature, flowers and plants boost our brain cells. Simply by gazing at greenery and being outside, we feel more relaxed and stress is reduced. #icymi - read my post of March 31, 2020 - it’s the one with the 3 blue hyacinth plants in teacups)
Whether you are planning a casual picnic, barbeque, or an elegant garden party, adding flowers to your event will complement the setting remarkably. I will bring the flowers, and the food too of course, for you! 😉
A picnic is about enjoying time together with your special people while making sweet memories!
To capture all those amazing memories you will make, be sure you bring your camera to capture and share the special moments! 📷

Happy Monday! Last Monday of April! Yeah; summer is coming soon.
Did you know? April is National Gardening Month?
Every year, for over 30 years, close to May long weekend, my husband and I prepare and plant a large vegetable garden in our yard. We love working with our hands, (actually, the first step is hubby using our rototiller) and planting vegetables and other plants. There is something special about harvesting your homegrown veggies and herbs for your salads and meals! You reap what you sow; in the garden and in your life.
Sharing a few tips with you about gardening! @nationaldaycalendar
“Start small – Gardening can be an investment. Start with container gardening if you want to give it a whirl. Tomatoes and peppers will provide color and produce to eat.
Herbs such as basil, sage, and rosemary can also be brought in during the winter if planted in a container. If kept in a sunny window and watered when they are dry, they should survive the winter. Trim and use in your cooking.
Soil – Use the right soil for the plant. Depending on the plant, you may need to check with the garden center or extension service to determine if you have the right soil to grow a particular plant or tree. Areas with clay soils do not drain well and your plants will have wet roots in rainy weather. Sandy soils drain easily, but in a drought, the plant will require more water unless the plant is drought resistant.
Potted Plants – Anything in a container, such as a clay, plastic or resin pot will require more watering than a plant that has been placed in the earth. Depending on the daily temperature, these plants will likely need to be watered at least twice a day.
Fertilizer – Not all fertilizer is the same. Read labels and use the correct fertilizer for the type of plant.
Mulch – Mulching bedded plants helps protect from weeds and keeps from water loss.
Raised beds – Helps save on weeding and back-breaking work.”
Have fun with gardening and growing your plants, vegetables and fruits! Share your garden photos, ideas and gardening tips in the comments!
Imagine you are sitting outside and enjoying your garden, whether in your yard, on your patio or deck. Now imagine you are enjoying your tea and treats in your teaboxes! For yourself, your Mom or Grandma or BFF! #celebratethespecialmoments, sip, savour and soak up the sun! (when it returns) :-)
Do you love gardening? Yes or No? What are you planting and growing?
“Gardening is the art that uses flowers & plants as paint, and the soil and sky as canvas.” - Elizabeth Murray
Happy Friday to you! 😃
As our beautiful sunshine of this past week fades away this Friday, I am dreaming of my happy place, my favourite place! Do you know where my happy place is?
Do you know who a “Thalassophile” is?
Thalassophile: (n.) a lover of the sea, someone who loves, the sea, the ocean. 🌊
I have many fond memories of being at the beach, walking along the shores of the ocean, basking in the sunshine, reading a book and pondering the beauty of life and nature. Btw, I’m also a lover of reading, books, words, quotes, poetry and writing.
She Who Loves the Beach
No words can express
The depth of contentment
As she walks along the beach.
As the waves lap against the shores
They create the rhythm of her life.
Balmy breezes kiss
Her sun-bronzed skin,
And she wonders…
Could there ever be a greater destiny
Than to be born with a love
For the treasures of the sea?
Here, she is home.
The salt washes away, the sand brushes off, the tans fade, yet the memories will last forever!
You can make memories, live for the moments you can’t put into words and #celebratethepsecialmoments You can share gifts of love, with your loved ones, BFF’s and/or clients with #teaboxes; gifts of love curated and created especially for you! Reminder: Mother’s Day is coming up soon! 🔜 Time is running out! ⏰ Only 16 days left! 🏃♀️ Life is short. Live it. Tell me what you want to have in your #teaboxes 💝 🎁 📱 👩💻

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!
