How is your day going? Lately, the bees have been buzzing non-stop over here. It feels good to be able to take a short break once in a while and enjoy a nice cup of tea. I'm exhausted! It's hard not to daydream about sneaking under the covers and taking a little catnap. But these will do!

“The best thing about dreams is that fleeting moment, when you are between asleep and awake, when you don't know the difference between reality and fantasy, when for just that one moment you feel with your entire soul that the dream is reality, and it really happened.” ~Unknown
