Afternoon Tea

I started a fun little afternoon ritual a couple weeks ago: tea time. :) So sometime in the afternoon I make a point to sit down and have some tea and a little treat. I love finding ways throughout the day to sort of perk up my day and celebrate my finished tasks by sitting down with a cup of tea and maybe a quick read. It feels good to stop whatever I'm working on to relax and take a little break.

Last week I had Lemon French Macarons to go along with my tea, and it made me feel extra fancy and French. :D 

I recently read the book French Women Don't Get Fat and it helped spur on this new activity (I highly recommend the book! I'll dish on what I love about it, but I'll save that for some other day). 

Be daring, be different,
be impractical, be anything
that will assert integrity of
purpose and imaginative
vision against the play-it-safers,
the creatures of the commonplace,
the slaves of the ordinary.
Cecil Beaton

What is a tradition you have (or want to start) to take full advantage of each day?
