morning tea

Is the air getting a little nippy where you are? I love-love-love the crispness and that autumny smell... Fall is always, always, ALWAYS my favorite season of the year.

Although I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I drink hot tea year-round, I definitely come into my "tea element" when the weather gets chilly. My morning routine starts with a run, then I come home and put the tea kettle on while I shower and dress for the day. By the time I'm ready for breakfast, the kettle has been whistling merrily for awhile, and I brew my tea and then sit quietly with a magazine or a book, taking a few moments to prepare myself for the work day ahead. Teatime is such a comfort, don't you think?

Morning light + English Breakfast = Perfection.
