friday finds ... the 5.16 edition

I love Friday Finds with Kim Klassen ... "it is a place to gather and share ... a place to cherish life's simple pleasures" ... doesn't that sound like such an inviting place?

I need to confess my guilty pleasure ... my weakness want NEED.

Starbucks ... but not just any liquid beverage ... a skinny Chia Tea Latte.  I try to limit myself to one a week ... but usually i cave before three days have slipped by.  

It is my pick me up on a stressful day ... my reward on a fabulous day ... or my "just because"...

My find this week was on the sleeve of my starbucks cup ...

"Steep Your Soul"

Oprah has teamed up with Teavana and Starbucks ... wow what a perfect match.
Their mantra ...  
"take a few moments to pause and reflect each day ... your own personal 'steep time' ... love it!
And Oprah's quotes on the sleeve ... perfect ...

My personal "steep time" is my time behind my camera lens.
 It is my time to breathe deep ... slow down ... and reflect ... 
And then a little magic can happen!

  1. You and I would be fast friends as I so look forward to my Chai Tea latte, too! Love that quote from Oprah, and yes, my time behind my camera is my "steep" time, too. I am one who needs to be reminded to slow down . . . and immersing myself in beautiful photos like yours today, helps me to reach this goal. Such lovely bokeh in your image today - love that angled line of the tree blossoms against the blue sky. A truly successful photo.

  2. I love Chai Tea Latte too! I haven't had one in a long time. The weather is perfect for one in Ohio today, rainy and cold. I may have to make a Starbucks run...
    Your image is beautiful. I love the bokeh and color.
    Have a great weekend!

  3. That quote just hit me smack between the eyes! Such wonderful words and truths. And your photo, well, it's the perfect showcase for those awesome words. Yes, my camera is my personal 'steep time' as well.

  4. Great quote but you can rely on Oprah, I can't get into Chai not sure why but I love your image so pretty, have a lovely weekend...

  5. That's a great quote, NancyJean, love it !
    And your photo is so very lovely ... just perfect !
    Nice weekend,

  6. That is a breathtaking shot. Love the blue!

  7. Gorgeous image...slight and cheerful! Great Oprah quote, too!

  8. Thank you for sharing your "find" -- steep your soul. I'm going to think on this one :)

  9. I have never tried the Chai Tea Latte's. Still a Coffee person but whatever helps you to unwind is what's important. Love that your photography helps you achieve that. It's quite lovely.

  10. Those words and that lovely image... such peace.


Thank you for your kind words. I enjoy reading each and every comment!
