I took a trip over the river yesterday afternoon to pick up a few things from Pottery Barn. For the first time in a while, I was able to just leisurely browse through shops. Normally I'm either with someone who wants to run in and out, or I'm with my son who isn't a fan of spending time in a cart.
Yesterday was different though. I planned the trip around nap time. This meant my son slept peacefully (he's a great sleeper) while I pushed him up and down aisles, and in and out of stores. Eventually, when he did awake, we were at the mall and I rented one of those tacky little cars for toddlers that push like a stroller. It kept him happy for the rest of the afternoon. He was so busy making car noises and asking other shoppers to "beep beep", that he didn't make a fuss once. I even got to treat myself to a latte (he sipped milk out of a sample cup happily).
It was just one of those days. I was completely relaxed and it felt good.
Anyway, I came across this little pot of honey for $3! It's packaged in the cutest little tumbler with a pretty bee printed on the front. What can I say, I'm a sucker for packaging. It's called Braswell's Select Orange Blossom Honey and it's 100% pure honey.
I've been trying to limit my sugar. I take it in both my coffee and tea because I need the sweetness, but it's just getting excessive. I figured adding a touch of honey would sweeten a cup of tea while being less refined and more natural and healthy.
This morning, I tried it with breakfast and, I have to say, it really is delicious.
A slice of lemon made it even more refreshing, especially with the fruity flavours in the honey.
There's something about these garden roses that I love. They're called O'Hara (so rightfully named), and they're just gorgeous. They smell amazing too - like a true garden rose. One little bloom in an old milk pitcher is a pretty little addition to the breakfast table.
I simply substituted my sugar for honey.
