Paper ~ well written books, writing paper as smooth as silk, recipes, blank journals, quite time with God.

Tea ~ as a beverage and a quiet ritual, involving authentic camellia sinesis or herbal tisane.

Music ~ all the good bits that represent excellence and balance.

Words ~ well placed and weighed with courage, weaving well-crafted stories or framing healing truth.

Science ~ evidenced based research that fosters a holistic approach to wellness that includes mind, body, soul and spirit.

People ~ especially women who investing their time, energy and resources in serving, supporting and nurturing those around them.

When it came time to think about the things I was really passionate about, this is the list that was created and gave a foundation to Paper & Tea Studio.  I hope it becomes a place where we can share stories, trade tips, and sip tea in quiet moments while we celebrate the joys of life – even when it is cracked and broken.
