Six months ago I became the mother of a baby girl named Gala. Since we got the news we couldn’t stop imagining the moment we were going to meet her and have her with us. In January the 2nd she was born and our lives have been boosted with the sweetest and most loving energy we can possibly imagine!
When I knew I was pregnant I reduced tea consumption to a minimum, once in a while I would sip a bit of jasmine green or maybe an earl grey but very little. So it was a long pause for a tea lover like me but it was something that just happened that way: I didn’t want to drink too much tea and my body didn’t ask for it either.
These days I try to have one cup in the morning when time allows me. The good thing is that my husband also likes tea and either of us will find the time to do it. Although there are not long breakfast with endless cups of teas anymore and there is less time to sit down and write about it, tea is still here.
I believe there is a time for everything and even though I wish I could post more frequently and take more photos, tea is in our lives as it should always be: intimate, simple, ours.
I was meant to write about this journey few months ago but the time is just right today, the day our baby is turning 6 months old. Today we toasted with a nice Cui Yu to celebrate her arrival and had a delicious tea us three.
Tea to celebrate, to wake up, to pause, to relax, to start the day, to think, to be happy… To toast to you Gala! Happy 6 months florecita!
