A Spot of Tea


Life has been very busy lately and more than a bit overwhelming. I feel pulled in a hundred different directions. When things get this way it's hard for me to stop and just relax. The other day my 5 year old took care of mommy. She invited me to a tea party. She even made her own invitations. The dress was formal, but I persuaded her to just let me wear a pretty apron. :)

She made the tea herself-lukewarm mint green tea (our favorite). We even had snacks (nutri-grain bars she had cut up). Her table was all pretty and classical music was playing in the background. I sat still...relaxed...and had such a nice time with her. It warmed my heart to know she did this just for me. What a special little girl. What a special time.

I love that! We had to stop and take a morning too this week. But we settled for a stroll thru the pumpkin patch and a story. would have been much nicer if it hadn't felt like July!
Sweet Memories!!

Hi, Tamm. You stopped by my blog and asked about the dress form. I couldn't find an e-mail for you so I'll try to leave the link to the store of the ebay seller I used: http://stores.ebay.com/dressformmall I hope you find just the right one! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Carla
