There is something so heartbreakingly adorable about preschool class pictures. I almost cried when I saw them. I am already getting nostalgic about these days, and am trying to enjoy every minute.

This is a project I have been working on, and am excited to share. After designing their packaging, I teamed with Wild Sage Apothecary, an artisan tea and herbal remedy shop to create a line of event favors, Pretty Little Packages. Each tin is filled with Wild Sage's healing herbal loose teas or an all-natural soy candle. Renee Dixon is a local herbalist who custom blends all of her teas, and they are wonderful. Everything is organic, healthful and delicious.
I quit drinking caffeine about a year ago and I let go of my beloved daily coffee. Now, having my big cup of herbal tea each morning is a ritual I look forward to each day. As a mom, these little rituals are an invaluable part of my day, and offer a small respite from the loving chaos created by a 3 year old boy. Also, Renee has turned me on to the health benefits of drinking loose tea, and I haven't looked back.
"When you purchase tea loose, you enjoy the visual and aromatic experience of the beautiful herbs each time you make a cup. You get to see what the individual plants look like and connect with them. You get to see the plants after they have steeped and given up their aroma, taste and medicine to your water, which can make you feel grateful to them. This is a lovely part of the tea ritual and not to be overlooked."
