What we're about
Welcome to Your Cup of Tea !
This group sprouted from two women in their early 30s ( Shemeka and Aissa) with strong desires to build an unshakeable bond between beautiful souls, who list friendship as something they value most in life. The two women have been friends since the ages of 11 (Shemeka, acts the oldest) & 13 (Aissa, actually the oldest). They lost touch a short time later and lived separate lives until destiny/fate allowed them to come together once again during their mid-twenties. It was as if they never missed a beat. Though their lives had taken completely different paths (Shemeka is a supermom and wife, Aissa can’t even find a puppy to commit to) they found similarities through both being driven career women but also self- proclaimed mermaids and unicorns. Who does that? We do. And we understand and accept it about one another, as we do many of our other weird quirks. Though we both had our own best friend in separate people, we knew we were filling a void in us both that had been empty for a long time. We had found OUR CUP OF TEA ! So together we made an unspoken commitment to friendship and we have flavored and kept our tea served warm, making sure to support one another in our separate endeavors as well as a few that we would join in as one. Nowadays, the world is superficial, cruel, and uncompromising. People no longer value their relationships and only care about self. Competition runs heavy as the world of social media has us all thinking we aren’t good enough as someone else, we have to uphold an image, or we have to appear to have it all even if we never had it or are about to lose it. Because of this, it has become harder for people to have genuine and lasting friendships, especially amongst women. This is why YOUR CUP OF TEA was created !
If you are a woman ( between the ages of 28-35) who is looking for a place where you can be accepted no matter your quirks, a place you will be valued and your true self will be celebrated, THIS IS THE PLACE. If you are looking for honesty, true loyalty, and no competition or jealousy amongst friends, THIS IS THE PLACE. If you believe that we are not put here on this earth to live alone and that even after you may have accomplished every dream possible, you STILL need your girls/besties standing in your corner for support and celebration, THIS IS THE PLACE. If you need somewhere you can be honest and open about your highs and lows but still reminded of the goddess and superwoman you are, THIS IS THE PLACE. Shemeka and Aissa are seeking like-minded women with whom they can create a fabulous support system. Though our lives are hectic and filled with responsibilities, and we live an hour apart, we have managed to remain friends amongst the chaos of our separate lives. We have flavored our cup of tea by adding and accepting each other’s likes and dislikes without question or need for explanation. We have kept our tea warm with daily/weekly convos, monthly outings, and yearly travel even when we have to struggle to fit them into our lives. We believe we have become better women with the help of each other. If you have always looked for a place to belong and value friendship as much as you value love and family, our little group just may be YOUR CUP OF TEA ! We hope so! Join us!
