Holiday Trifecta-Tea, Earth, & Picnics
Today is April 21, also known as National Tea Day! I love me some tea. Most people know that tomorrow is Earth Day. Actually, it is the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day! It is also a New Moon which is an excellent time for us to begin new, good habits for ourselves. Guess what, it doesn’t end there. April 23 is National Picnic Day!
So, here is the best way to celebrate this week. Pick the day of the week with the sunniest weather, pack your picnic basket, and head out to the park/yard/anywhere you can legally, safely sit on the earth while practicing social distancing. Enjoy a snack, sip some tea, and plant the seed of good intentions for yourself.
For inspiration, I have included pictures of tea.

Happy celebrating, friends! Take care of yourselves and go enjoy an inspired picnic.
