Senses and memories…

Leave a comment

Bed. Blankets. Tea. Peace & Quiet (well except for my precious B playing with his new Legos…may be awhile before he zonks out). 
Something special about this particular tea. 

*Long Post*

Gosh time flies. A few years ago my dear friend and I went to Costa Rica for a retreat. They had this tea there. I LOVED it. I thought *Twinnings* I can get that back in NY. NOPPPE couldn’t find it anywhere..not even online. 

Another dear lady we met there ended up returning back after a year or so and I mentioned to her to bring a box back if she saw it there. Months later I receive a box from Canada (she lives in Canada) and it was THIS TEA. She got a box in Costa Rica & mailed it to me when she got home in Canada. 

I was pregnant at the time with Brayden and couldn’t drink it. I put the box in the freezer to keep it as long as I could. Once I had my Baby B I savored some of it but didn’t want to use it all up….in time I thought I had drank it all up until our fridge/freezer went caputz I found a few bags left. Savored one and it still tasted and smelled the same.  

When I packed for this trip I grabbed some tea bags and remembered these. I thought once again ‘Oh since I can drink them now’ I’ll bring these with me. 

As I let it steep. Deep inhalations of the smell brought me back to such a peaceful place that I first initially tasted it. 

Funny how our senses -tastes and smells do that. Funny how the oddest things trigger such memories. Funny how things connect in full circle. Funny how my mind works.

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
