the sunday slowdown



There's nothing a little tea and a sweet letter can't fix.
I love the peace and the quiet of a Sunday,
the way it bookends the week with a little pocket of solitude and wind-down time.
This day of the week keeps me sane and centered.
I dance to a slower melody.

Today I checked the mailbox and found the sweetest snail mail from a dear friend who knew exactly what I needed to lift me out of a little mood rut.
I made myself a hot cup of British tea to remind me of home, set out fresh roses and set aside an hour to slow sip, read over fond memories and just be.
I'm forever blessed to realize I have friendships that have survived time and distance and prolonged absence.

Swoony, cozy, cups of tea-filled Sundays are where it's at.

  4. You can't beat a cup of tea... especially Yorkshire tea, or Twinings!
    That looks like the sweetest of letters.

    1. I miss Twinings SO much, but it's too expensive out here :(
      I usually get my mam to send me good ol' PG Tips in the post!

  5. Those are the best friendships - the ones that start where you left off, no matter how long it's been since you've seen each other.

    What a great relaxing Sunday - tea and a sweet letter from your friend [the card is so cute].

    Have a wonderful week, Lou.
