Tea Time


As i mentioned last Friday, I was invited to afternoon tea at the Ritz Carlton yesterday. It was a "thank-you" gesture to all of the ladies who had helped my cousin over the past year with her twins.

It was lovely, fabulous, and truly wonderful and I was delighted to have been invited. However, it was certainly a break from the norm for me. I certainly do not regularly attend "tea." (Although I do drink tea everyday, it is usually in a thermos on my way to work or in a chipped mug while lounging in sweats). I am a girl who hikes and camps and revolves her weekend around flag football and watching football all day on Sunday.

So to change my usual Sunday of sweats and stew to one of ruffles, tea sandwiches, and crumpets was certainly a nice change of routine. (And, I still got home in time to watch the Skins play the Ravens!)

How fancy! I love tea time...there are really some wonderful tea houses in the least expected places. I'll have to add the Ritz to my list of place to go!
