Before starting this blog, I spent some time figuring out my identity (which is actually not a simple task to take on if you don't know yourself, by the way.) But given some time, as Oprah would say, I came to an "epiphany" that copying off from someone's brilliant idea wasn't a bad idea. I decided to steal my blog's name from a friend who composed a poem for me from way back in highschool (saving that for another page). Entitled Ginger Tea, I thought it was a great way to start off my blog. Ginger (the spice) + Tea (the simple) = ME (oh, that was lame but ya kinda get the point - or help me out here :-p).
My blog is an expression of who I am from the inside-out. Just like tea, straight-forward and simple, but can be served with several kicks, I come off that way. What you see is what you get. I'm just. . . . . . interestingly chill. A friend described me as, "kooky" - a word which I never thought to associate myself with. But I guess I am (depending on certain situations or the people I'm with, of course!). Been too often now that people give me weird looks when I do some random, funny thing like as if they didn't know me. HA! Laughter is just too good for the soul, everyone needs it. My job as a preschool teacher demands that I come off this way too, cause who wants a straight-faced, mono-toned preschool teacher anyway!??? (Uhhh. Crickets make some noise.) What you do is pretty much who you are inside, so it's not that easy to separate my career from who I really am. But I can be serious, too you know (probably much more than being cray-cray.) I choose to tone it down a notch and observe life through different lenses. As much as possible, I relate my life in the light of God's Word and work from there. Because we're all a work in progress and no one is perfect, I turn to Him because He's all that I want to be. Another thing closest to my heart is family. All throughout my blog, you will notice how much of a family gal I am. I was raised to enjoy the company of the people I was born with and I value what I have. By the end of the day, family's all you got and by the end of the day, a good pair of shoes should make you feel awesome. I love fashion, though I'm no Rachael Zoe or fashion obsessed geek, I know what's pretty and lovely enough. It's no rocket science to appreciate something that's deemed widely FABULOUS. I like FASHION. Period. But I must say, like tea that's safe and simple, you will not see me wearing fur or tops with tassles.
So, that's that. I hope you enjoy my posts as I enjoy writing them!
