A couple of weeks ago my sisters and I had a tea party for our lovely Mother and her friends. Since her trip to London last April, my sister M. has been a little obsessed with the Proper English Afternoon Tea ritual. It was her idea to have this little affair as a Mother's Day gift to our Mom. We had cucumber, watercress, tomato, and curry chicken sandwiches, cake, fruit salad, scones with clotted cream, and, of course, tea! (herbal and lemonade for us Mormon gals) It was quite the spread and a fun afternoon was had by all. One funny friend arrived fashionably late wearing her ever-so-proper white gloves! When you live in a house with five boys like I do, it's nice to feel like a lady every once in a while! Thanks to M. for being the Hostess with the Mostess!
I'm a stay-at-home mom of five who likes photography, quilting, reading, cooking when I'm in the mood, watching movies, going to the beach, home renovation and decorating, swimming, and hanging out with my kids. At the moment I'm a bit obsessed with Downton Abbey.
I live in New England, and my favorite season is spring. I love the colors green and pink.
