On sipping tea and being cozy…learning to be still during everyday life.

I decided to start this blog because it’s something I always wanted to do.  Sounds so typical, right?  Well, in another lifetime a long time ago I used to keep journals (yes, this probably dates me).  I found it introspective but also relaxing.  It would help me to focus on things that were important to me.  I found my inspiration for this blog from my aunt who has re-started her own blog, and who, with the assistance of my cousin has made video diary entries.  I am so impressed!

So what’s important?  Right now it’s taking a pause to focus on what’s important to me…my family and what they need…my health…my spiritual well-being…keeping a sense of humor in the midst of hectic times.

Why sipping tea and being cozy?  Because these are two things that help me slow down and relax.  Making tea is not instant.  The water has to boil.  The tea needs to steep.  It needs to be sipped.  You can’t rush that.  Being cozy means that I am safe, warm and snug…and there’s a smile on my face.

I hope you’ll come along.


I've always enjoyed writing and finally decided it was time to blog! As part of my profession I write every day, but I'm now trying to take the time to write creatively. My family and friends have been very encouraging as there is little that is written down in the way of a family chronicle. This is a favorite topic of mine! In addition to family history, I write about life, family, friends and faith. My husband is a full-time parent to our special needs daughter. I’ve explored this topic, too. I also enjoy music, crocheting, reading and relaxing with my family. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer!
