☕☕ Sip this poem David wrote just for us:
THE SECRET TO SUCCESS
I took my Folgers
To my chair
In hopes my muse
Would meet me there.
Alas the date
Was not to be,
My muse preferred
Her Lipton’s tea.
I’m brilliant now,
Don’t wish to brag,
The secret was in
The Lipton’s bag.

☕ Cuppa of Choice: “One of my favorite kinds of tea is Green Tea. Power packed and good for you. Sometimes I may put almond milk in it as well as agave. The restaurant where I bought the tea is GustOrganics, which is located in the Chelsea section of Manhattan. They serve organic vegan cuisines. I don’t go there often, but when I do, it’s happy time. Don’t get me started on their Tiramisu! Happy Tea Drinking, Everyone!”

☕☕ Lap up this poem Charles wrote just for us:
Sipping tea, you and me,
Gazing at the sparkling sea
We are now a family,
Holding hands, breath to breath,
There’s no place I’d rather be.

Be still my heart. I need to go lie down and cool off.
Cabana boys, fan me with palm fronds.
