Welcome to Earl Grey & Polka DotsHere at Earl Grey & Polka Dots we believe in connection, friendship, and tea: We believe in connecting with a cozy tea chat on the couch, or writing a handwritten note. We believe in celebrating friendships and standing shoulder to shoulder with the women in our lives. And we believe in the quiet & connecting nature of tea: to drink a cup as self-care or to share a cup with a dear friend.
The story of steady + flight
In 2017 my best friend of 20 years died quite unexpectedly. While writing her eulogy I was reminded of and wrote about this story:
The night before my wedding I gave Lisa the gift of an anchor necklace and told her she was the anchor in my life. During her matron of honor speech she talked about the necklace and said "If I'm your anchor then you are my hot-air ballon."
At the end of writing that story I wrote the phrase: together we were the perfect balance of steady + flight. And in that moment steady + flight was born.
