Where I've Been and Where I'm Going

You may have noticed that things have been a little quiet around here. The blog has continued at a bit of a reduced pace and I just haven't had the time to be as active on social media. The main reason for that is that I've a taken a leap of faith, leaving my rather comfy job to take on a management role at +Tea Drunk. Change is scary, especially for a worry wart such as myself, but it is also exciting and challenging. I work long hours but it has been amazing to have the chance to do something that I love.

My boss is currently on a buying trip to China and I've been holding down the fort at the tea house seven days a week. My poor boyfriend hardly sees me anymore but he's been incredibly supportive and understanding. It's hard work but I feel happier and more fulfilled than I have in a very long time. Some folks were worried that I might have to stop +Tea for Me Please but I'm still as committed to this blog as ever.

Now that you know where I've been, I'm excited to tell you where I am going. World Tea Expo! I've been wanting to go to this event for years and came close last year but in the end I wasn't able to afford the airline tickets. I'm beyond excited to meet tea folks that I have been talking to online for years like +Geoffrey Norman+Jen Piccotti and +Ricardo Caicedo. I'll technically be going there as press but I'll also be using the opportunity to scout teaware distributors for +Tea Drunk. The Tea Bloggers Roundtable is something that I am particularly looking forward to. Check out this nift flyer for more info on that!

Tea has opened so many wonderful doors for me. I can't help but feel grateful that I have so much to look forward to. Do you have any exciting plans coming up? I'd love to heart about them, especially if they involve tea :)
