We are avid readers and writers, nature lovers, dog lovers and lovers of peace and tranquility in our homes and contentment and creativity in our daily lives.
Meet Tootsie - Our Mascot
Peacocks symbolize Vision, Self Expression, Spirituality, Awakening, Integrity, & Freedom. In mythology the tail has the “eyes” of the stars.
Linda lives in the heartland of the country in Kansas. Maxine is in the Western Sierras of California. Though we are 1,700 miles apart in location, our hearts beat with the cadence of sisterhood. We have been best friends for over twenty years.
Since beginning our partnership in the tea business that began about seventeen years ago, we have experienced many ups and downs, successes and failures, potholes in the road and smooth sailing on calm seas.
It's been an adventure.
We now enjoy the peace and tranquility of semi retirement and wish to share some of our tranquil moments with you, along with our love of cooking, nesting, nature, writing, reading, and adventure.
Our Tranquil Moments Blog, Tootsie's Book Club, and Guided Meditation helps us achieve tranquility each and every day.
