Celebrating Daughters, Mothers, Sisters


"Take time out of your busy life to make memories!"
I said this to myself this week and with Anna back from Colorado and school not yet started, we did just that.  My mother will soon be 78 and you just never know how much longer you will have with your loved ones.  My mama is a real southern belle and she loves afternoon high tea at nice hotels. I hadn't ever taken my younger 2 girls to a high tea and it had been over 6 years since we had been. It was a nice afternoon.....no boys, no toddlers, live harp music, cherishing each other, wonderful food and beautiful surroundings.  I think I'm going to make it a yearly event with my girls......it seems to ease the sad August goodbyes when college starts back-up. 



 We had 4 different types of tea.  This hotel didn't have the antique teapots that we are used to but some really cool modern ones. 
My darling Anna looking so grown-up. 

 MaryKate's first high tea.  She came home and told her Dad that the food was beautiful but didn't taste that great.  Well, she loved the chocolate at the end : )
 Caroline at 10 years old really appreciated it.  She had been before as a baby.

Ellie and Nana......twins.
