A Year of Green Tea

Milestones always mean a lot to us. We celebrate anniversaries & birthdays, We mark those occasions on the calendar. We raise a glass to celebrate. These tend to be the landmarks of our lives that we hang our hats on, as they become important parts of who we are.

This week marks a year for me of replacing my Diet Coke habit (some might call addiction) with green tea.

I've detailed my year-long journey here:
Green Your Routine... With Green Tea
Diet Coke Days Be Gone
The Bad, Worse, & Ugly of Aspertame 

I've come to find the warmth of the tea a trigger to a momentary happy place and literal sip of calm. (Striking for a girl who never fancied warm beverages.)  My favorite way to drink it: my insulated white Corkcicle through my stainless steel straw, steaming though not scalding.  The toasty warmth lasts for hours!

I've also found I've not once missed or longed for a sip of my previously-satisfying Diet Coke soda.  Add in some health benefits and it makes a girl feel good. I'm proud of my year, and not looking back!
