My sister, DeeDee, and I share the birthday month of March.
So each March we make a date for tea or lunch for just the two of us.
It's a wonderful tradition and one I definitely recommend.
I have always said we must celebrate the small things along with the big things of life.
Last Saturday we celebrated another year together.
DeeDee and I didn't grow up together.
We have different mother's and DeeDee didn't know she had two other sisters.
About 15 years ago we found each other.
So you see our celebrations are even more precious.
We had tea at the Lavender Bleu Tearoom in West Linn, Oregon. Since we are both watching our weight these days, we opted out of the largest, tiered afternoon tea; but we found the tea we chose to be just perfect.
There was a veggie tart, a stacked reuben sandwich, yummy cucumber sandwich, chocolate chip scone, fresh fruit, apple cobbler, lavender heart cookie, and coconut cream tart. My tea choice for the day was Blackberry Sage Black Tea.
Sharing tea with someone special in your life is so special and highly recommended.
