I don't know about you, but the last few weeks have just been insanely stressful.
So when one of my best friends, Mary, texted me Tuesday morning and said "Asterisk for lunch?" I was all in.
It was so great to talk, to sip tea and share tea sandwiches in a lovely book-lined restaurant for a few hours on a crazy hot day. Afterwards, I felt rejuvenated, refreshed, and much less stressed out.
I read somewhere that Brits used to call (or still do call?) 4:00 tea "solace."
Good friends, tea, and yummy food are always solace in my world.
