Two important changes are in store for April 1st for me. It is the beginning of Spring term for my grad program. Winter term is always the most difficult one of the year, so to start Spring term means I made it through the hard part… here’s to a new start and forward motion.
This upcoming term has a lot in store. I am going to take my first board exams, for one. Luckily I have a mini vacation lined up in May to look forward to. I will be going to the Black Mountains in North Carolina for a botanical medicine conference. Learning and traveling, can’t get much better than that.
April 1st is also the day I am putting my Etsy shop in vacation mode for the entire month.Â Yes, whole month ofÂ experiential herbal exploration my own accord. Besides a slew of regular business-related activities (mostly making back stock and taking product photos) I envision new, simpler and more eclectic formulations of teas incorporating what I have been studying in regards to the natures and flavors of herbs in Chinese Herbalism. There are more than a few local herbs that I have yet to connect with, too.
It is time to go deeper, to not just establish but solidify.
I don’t know what that will look like, but the journey is enticing.
Another amazing thing going in in April is …The Love Project. Here’s a description:
