Meet Tootsie - Our Mascot
Peacocks symbolize Vision, Self Expression, Spirituality, Awakening, Integrity, & Freedom. In mythology the tail has the “eyes” of the stars.
We live about five miles apart in a small mountain community in the Western Sierras of California with our husbands and dogs. We have been best friends for over twenty years.
Since beginning our partnership in the tea business that began about fifteen 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 mountain living and wish to share some of those moments with you, along with our love of cooking, nesting, nature and adventure.
We're both avid readers and writers, and our Tranquil Moments Blog and Tootsie's Book Club help us achieve tranquility from those passions every day.
We hope you'll sign up for our blog HERE
