Every spring, the ladies in my family gather for tea at my mom’s church. It’s an event I look forward to each year as it includes delicious, homemade scones, cakes, tea sandwiches and warm, cozy tea which we drink out of fabulous little tea cups. Everything is prepared by an English chef and is just awesome.

It’s sort of like a girly tea party except I’m not 5 I’m 31 and we don’t wear hats. It’s quality time with the ladies in my family, whom I all adore. It’s one of those times you know you need to embrace and cherish. And I do. Each scone-crumb, every tea-filled second of it.
