Today was a beautiful day.
It has been a rough week for me and I really needed the gentleness of today.
My mother, daughter and I went to a local tea house to celebrate our new baby due next month. When my daughter was coming, I was given a beautiful baby shower and it was such a nice way to welcome her into the family. However with this little guy I wanted something quiet, relaxing and gentle.
I decided a tea party would be perfect!
Having never been to this (or any other tea house) we really didn’t know what to expect and to be honest, that was part of the fun! We had delicious scones with clotted cream, salad, quiche and I enjoyed a decaf marzipan tea (which I had to buy to enjoy again at home!)
Afterwards we came home, sat on the front porch while the little girl played, hubby did some yard work and mom and I chatted. 64 degrees, and gorgeous it was completely my kind of day! I am balanced, and feel like myself again.
I also promised my podcast listeners that I would share some pictures of our Easter chocolate making. For those who don’t know, my mother and I would make Easter chocolates when I was a kid and the molds have been passed down to me. It is a nice tradition to continue with my own kids. Even though my little girl was more interested in playing with her “dancing fairy” and eating the chocolate
I hope however you celebrate that you are having a beautiful weekend.
Until Next Time…
