I turned 37 yesterday. Wow. Doesn’t that number seem really big? It certainly gave me pause, but it doesn’t feel as dramatic as I thought it was going to.
Last night we dropped off the kids and had dinner at a local Korean restaurant I’ve been wanting to try. Not as good as our favorite, but I thoroughly enjoyed my bibimbap. Afterward, we had just enough time to pick up a mini chocolate cake to celebrate with the kids before bedtime. My daughter loves to sing “Happy Birthday” and to blow out candles, so we got her a mini-cupcake with sprinkles, too.
And right now? I’m sipping some organic rooibos africana. I tried it at a christmastime tea in Colorado with my mother-in-law and sisters-in-laws. I only brought back a small packet and was sad to run out. Luckily a local tea shop carries it, and David stopped to get me some. I’ve been partial to South African rooibos before, but this particular blend with cornflowers, blue mallow and vanilla is so deliciously warm and comforting. And it is caffeine free – good for late nights. 😉
Ever since going to Vietnam, I like to drink tea in the asian “milk tea” style, with sweetened condensed milk. It sounds weird, but its really good. Rich and creamy and lightly sweet. If you are usually a coffee drinker and don’t particularly care for tea, I think this one will change your mind.
