If we sat down for a cup of tea...

If we sat down for a cup of tea, I'm sure we'd have a marvelous time. We would talk about our adventures, our love lives, our day to day joys and trials. We would listen to eachother's problems and offer good (or maybe not so good) advice in return. In that short period of time, we would become great friends.

I would tell you about how I had a breakdown last week, sobbing to my thoroughly confused but wonderful husband about how I don't feel like "me" anymore, that I missed America, and that I couldn't go another day without feeling happy.

I would also tell you that all it took was a hair cut and color, a few yoga classes, and some warmer weather to completely change that and turn it all around. Life is beautiful again and I feel silly for my meltdown.
I would complain that my body is totally not built for yoga but my soul definitely is. It hurts me and I make a fool of myself, but I love it. 

I would laugh with you about how one knows they are in housewife mode when the highlight of their week is getting a crockpot. No really. I'm over the moon.

I would tell you that we spent all day saturday cleaning our apartment and doing laundry and this is probably the first time since we've moved in that I'm not embarrassed about how it looks.
I would tell you that I'm learning what it truly means to blog for "me." I can't force inspiration. I can't pretend to be a fashonista/DIY-master/gourmet chef when I'm just not. I can't force projects on myself if I'm not in the mood, just because I know it would be great on the blog. I'm learning to just go about life, living it the way I need to live it, documenting it along the way to share with you.
Not to you,
Not for you,
with you.
Because you are my friends and I love you. 

I would tell you that sometimes I wish my husband and I could pack up all of our stuff into cute little backpacks and just wander this beautiful earth like nomads.

I would also tell you that sometimes I wish my husband and I could just hole up in our little apartment and forget that any world outside exists at all.

Oh, and you can't forget the time we'll spend going over the best-dressed and worst-dressed of the Oscars this year. I mean, that's totally a must.

Thank you for being my friend, and continually reading about my little life. 
I'm looking forward to having tea with you.

I have never liked the taste of tea very much. But I love the concept of it. :D

I think we would agree on just about everything you just mentioned! I too get to feeling rather shallow sometimes, because when my moods get all rollercoastery, its always such little fluffy kinds of things that boost me up again. Like hair appointments.

I'm so glad that you are finding your 'blogger self' and being true to you and the things you want to write about and share WITH us. You have a beautiful heart!

This post makes me so happy! I need this reminder daily - that blogging should come from the heart and the self and not be something done just to "look great" or to appeal to others.

I often feel that desire to give up the "roots" part and just have the "wings." I want to go everywhere and not feel stuck and walled in. And then I remember that I'm kind of a homebody! Still, the desire is there.

I would seriously have a cup of tea with you any time.

Sweet, honest and genuine. Some of the best traits of a good friend :)

I am a huge fan of tea & yoga. (not together though) You may not think your body is built for yoga but if you keep doing it a few times a week, come next month you'll change that view. I find yoga is better than therapy.

I've had the similar meltdown before, sometimes you just need a little change and you'll feel better.

Also, I want to wander this beautiful world and have tea with as many people as I can. <3 I feel the urge to send you tea now. We have a local tea lounge who makes all of their own blends and because I now want to have tea with you I feel like sending you some. Is that weird?

When ARE we going to have this cup of tea? Well, actually I don't like tea sadly but that's beside the point. I'll have an apfelschorle or whatever.

I am so glad the warm weather, clean apartment, yoga classes, etc have brought Daryl back into Daryl!

Maria said...

Awh! I hope everything is feeling better! It's crazy what warm weather can do for you! Sending you happy thoughts and warm wishes your way! PS: if you ever need a care package from the states, totally let me know. It'll be from Louisiana though, so spicy foods are a must! Glad to see you're all caught up on Oscars as well...some looks last night were just NOT okay!

Can I just say that I LOVE this post. Seriously. Wonderful. xx

Tabitha Mahoney said...

This couldn't have been said any better. With you. LOVE IT.

it is amazing what a little yoga and a little bit of pampering can do! I was in the same sort of funk the last few days and had a good cry, some hugs from my husband and snapped out of it. Surely it was a combination of stress, jetlag and not enough exercise, so this week it is daily yoga for me! My favorite way to practice when I cant make it to the yoga studio is (amazing for expats and when traveling)
glad to hear you are feeling better :)

Renata said...

I feel like this sometimes too.

Next time you start to feel like your you has been lost, send me an email or something. I'll have coffee and then I'll send you one back, and you'll have tea. :)
