When sorting through photographs recently I came across a picture of a girlfriend and me taken when we were three years old.
[L-R: Susan and Me]
She was in my wedding, and then we drifted apart when I moved to Oklahoma with my military husband, and she moved to Hawaii.

We finally reconnected again at her 50th birthday party.
She and her husband retired to Arizona, but we've gotten together twice during their return visits to Michigan. The photo below was taken in 2011 at a Chinese restaurant.

One of the perks of eating at a Chinese restaurant is knowing you'll be served properly brewed tea [usually Oolong, but sometimes a Jasmine Green Tea, or a mix of both]. China is the birthplace of tea, so it has a long standing history in Chinese culture.
Here's to friendship and tea - a perfect pairing!
