I was so excited to go with some girl friends on a ladies retreat in TN. We did a few pit stops along the way- I took those stops as opportunities to get some tea.
In Cincinnati we stopped at Dunkin Donuts and I got a Matcha Smoothie. It was good, I am sure not healthy in anyway, but it was a nice pick me up.
Somewhere in KY we stopped for gas... I have to say that I was not able to finish the chai. I forgot how awful sugar-free syrup was. So, I can not tell you if I enjoyed the Seattle Chai, cause I tossed it.
We drove to LaFollette and 14 or so of us ladies shared a lake house for the weekend.
It was so much fun to talk and pray and grow closer to God during this weekend.
These two sisters have been my friends since the 80's when we went to summer camp together. I loved being together and reconnecting. Spending time with friends is always a good idea.
Even though I only see these gals a few times a year it is a blessing to have friends that you share so much in common with. Friends that also love Jesus and care about others. Friends that you can share your concerns with, pray with and laugh with. These are those friends for me!!
During the weekend I bought my tea, syrups, electric kettle, frother and other tea items. I had fun playing barista and sharing my love of tea with the other ladies. My love language is gifts and I considered it a joy to share this gift of tea with them.
I made Pumpkin lattes.
I made new friends this weekend too. Friends that I look forward to seeing again, laughing with, drinking tea, and loving Jesus together.
I made chai Lattes.
I made butterfly pea tea.
I made mango Bubble Tea.
On the way home I got a tea at Sonny's restaurant we stopped at. It was really good, I had 3 cups.
What fun gift do you have that you can share with friends? Sharing your gifts and talents with others is a great way to share joy and encourage others.
Share you love and passion with others...for me that is Jesus and tea.
