It’s been a while since I posted something here. And a lot of things happened around me lately…things which make you stop and think about life at a different level … The good thing is that I am not anymore upset because our pc crashed and that we lost every single photo of our children, holidays, soaps etc; I also restarted reading novels…I know, you would say WHAT ? but when you have 2 kids, a job, some hobbies and when you want to make almost everything yourself at home, finding time for reading is not easy. And… it’s May: I love this month of the year more than any other month especially because I go to see my mother. Usually she would come to see us but… Strange how this mother-daugther relation gets stronger after all those years, even if we see each other only twice a year.
10th may is Mothers day in Belgium. It felt so nice to see my girls coming to me with poems learnt at school, presents and flowers. I only wish those moments would last longer. It made me think more about my mother and her habits.
My mother loved/still loves her daily tea moments and we loved seeing her enjoying it. Every time we visit new places, we bring her some tea. During his last business trip to Chile and Argentina, my husband found a tea which one could buy almost everywhere there but of which I have never heard before: maté tea. I love to discover new ingredients, so immediately I started to google about it . I was surprised to find out that this tea has “ the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate” all in one beverage. Almost known as a national drink of Argentina, this tea has become my morning routine at work at least 2-3 days a week. Drinking it, feels like being on holiday 😉
Soap made of: maté tea, coconut oil, olive oil, cacao butter, shea butter, lavender essential oil, lemon essential oil.
