Why do I do these things to myself?

This morning, I got a strange e-mail from my old best friend's ex boyfriend. It was completely unexpected and quite frankly freaked me out a bit. I don't deal well with losing friends and losing my best friend was tough on me. I've tried several times to reconnect with her but no such luck. Her ex's email to me got me thinking and of course I emailed her again. WHY? I wish I didn't need closure so badly.

Anyway I hate to get so personal and mushy on here. But there you go.


Back to the Oregon recaps. While in Bend, Andy and I REALLY wanted to try out a brewery. But no, this post is not about that. This post is about the teahouse we stopped at while waiting for delicious food and beer for lunch.


Here's my baby brother Daniel and my cousin Wally. They kept themselves entertained while the adults ordered tea.


There were tons of varieties to choose from.



Ignore Andy's big red eye. Andy's eyes got so red and dry. He looked kind of scary. Love you husband!


Is that better? Not really...moving on.


Isn't this teahouse so cute? I love brick walls.


My aunt Margie was smart and didn't order hers to go. She got her tea in a fancy glass cup.


I wish we had teahouses near me. It was so nice to sip a warm glass of pear and pomegranate black tea while waiting an hour to eat lunch. Especially on a cold snowy day.


If you ever get to downtown Bend, I would suggest trying this place out!

Do you like hot tea? What's your favorite flavor? I'm partial to fruity black teas. Do you have a teavana near you? I love buying loose leaf tea from there.

I love hot tea!! My favorite is Celestial Seasons Candy Cane Lane green tea. It is the ultimate comfort (in tea form) in my opinion!! :)

Ooh, that tea looks fancy! Love the displays of the tea here. Personally I like english breakfast with milk and sugar or jasmine/green tea/ pu-erh.

I know it's really none of my business. But as someone who has experienced lost connections (with friends and a parent), it's hard to do, but sometimes you jus thave to let them come to you. They will come to you when they are ready. Sometimes the more you try to reconnect, the more they push away. At least thats what I did. I got in touch when I was ready.

p.s. Again, I frikken love that coat of yours!

If you're ever in NYC, you HAVE to try Alice's Tea Cup -- they have a tea list bigger than most restaurant's wine lists! Plus, their fresh, homemade scones are to die for...

Every year my girlfriends and I get together for an afternoon of high tea! It is so girly, I LOVE IT! The teahouse you went to looked adorable.

Wait. You're leaving us hanging. So what happened to that old friend? I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing...maybe she will respond well. If not, oh well. At least you have the bigger heart.

Love green tea! Esp mild, Japanese sencha!

I'm the same way as you with old friends. The girl I grew up with and had been best friends with since I was in 7th grade no longer talks to me. It was so weird. We shared an apartment in college even. But then I don't happens I guess. I've tried reconnecting with her multiple times, through multiple forms of technology, and nothing. It's devastating to me right now because she's expecting her first child later this month and it's heart-wrenching to me to know that I won't be there, I may never meet her son and I don't think she really wants me in his life...ugh.

So yes. I feel you. :(

I so hear you! And I agree with Karly, you just have to let them come to you if they will, when they are ready. I have a friend right now who won't return my phone calls or Facebook messages, so I've just had to let it go. I've also been on the other end, where I've had to put a distance between myself and someone else. It stinks but whatever happened to cause the situation in the first place, you can only do so much: forgive them and yourself and try to move on.

Also...I looooove tea! I think Stash is my favorite brand (Tazo a close second) and my favorite flavors are peppermint and chamomile but I'm always willing to try new ones because I just love tea that much.

that place is so cute!

losing friends is such a hard thing. I lost a few in high school, pretty suddenly, and have no closure at all, but they made it pretty clear they were what do you do, you know?

chickie, I feel your pain. I also lost 2 close friends and whenever I speak to someone that is a mutual friend, it brings back so many memories. It's hard when you part ways with friends esp when they were very close. Till this day, I get the urge to contact them but then I remember what happened the last time I tried, and I move on.

BTW I think you and Andy are such a cute couple...

I drink tea every morning and I love chamomile. Where is teavana?

Mmm, I love hot tea! My favorite is Fortune's Blueberry Vanilla, with some french vanilla creamer. I also love Stash's White Christmas, and their peach. I always want to try loose tea, but haven't gotten around to it yet...
Good luck with your "friend"!
