Today's Storytelling Sunday at Sian's. So grab a cup of something and head to her blog to read other people's contributions. Here's mine:
This year we explore precious things, past or present (at least, that's my reading). This month, I chose one tradition I'm slowly but surely establishing: a Saturday tea/journaling ritual at a special place. I could drink tea at home, but I find that going to a tea place is taking the whole sensory experience to another level (especially if there are some pastries involved ;-)).
Here is a look at a few of my experiences so far in Bordeaux. First, Couleurs Sucrées, my favorite place of all time. They have traditional and original pastries to go along and it's very cosy. And they sell quality products:
Ailleurs à Bordeaux is a nice place to go too, though it can get crowded and noisy. The decoration and china they use are so old that it's a trip down memory lane or to another time to go there.
Coffea is a franchise, so it doesn't really have any special identity to it, but it's a quiet place to go and it sells awesome tea.
This little Saturday thing is my little self-care bracket in very busy weeks. It is my little indulgence to relax and connect to my writing while being outside. Grateful for what I can enjoy and just to be where I am. I used to hate tea and now I cannot live without it.
What about you? What are your precious things?
