A simple cup of tea...
I don't know about y'all, but a simple cup of tea can change me from feeling frumpy to feeling feminine in one sip. Why is that? Is it because I must pause to drink it? I can't just gulp it down like a soda. Or is because it is served in a pretty cup? Is it the enchanting aroma? Whatever it is, I love it.
Enjoying a cup of tea is just what I needed today. I woke up tired. I felt unkempt. I simply poured a cup of my favorite tea (Chai has been my favorite for about 2 years now), visited a lovely feminine blog, Homeliving Helper, and voila! I'm feeling much more ladylike than I was half an hour earlier.
For me, I enjoy keeping my home in order when I feel more feminine. I want to make sure that even the little things are straightened or cleaned- not just sloppily done simply to be able to check it off my "to do" list that day. When I feel more ladylike, I make sure that even the little things about ME are straightened, as well. For example, I make sure my hair is in place, my clothes are neatly pressed, my earrings are on, I'm smelling fresh and clean.
A simple cup of tea can lead to a clean home AND a more lovely feeling wife and mother! Imagine that!!
What makes YOU feel more feminine? Please share!! If you blog about it or have blogged about it before, please leave a link for all to enjoy!!
