And then on some days I find beautiful messages from my customers, like this one from Karen of MooBeeTees, in my Etsy inbox:
I just have to thank you for sending me your divine tea blends. I think I'm in love!! As tea is my only drink beside water, it is so nice to find some beautiful fresh blends that do what they say they do - relax!
I also wanted to let you know that when your package arrived, MooBee [Karen's daughter] wanted to know who it was from. I told her 'Verity'. She thought on your name for a couple of minutes and then asked me, 'Is Verity a fairy? She has a name that only a fairy would have.'
So in our house you are now 'Verity, the tea fairy' :)
Well... so long as I'm someone's Tea Fairy (how awesome is that?)... I can remember that it's all worthwhile!
