My sister and I share the same birthday month.
Each year we either have lunch together or tea.
Last Saturday we celebrated at Cheryl's Cup of Tea
in Oregon City, Oregon.
Normally we need to be a group of at least 4 people
to have reservations, but because there was another
group Cheryl said we could come and have tea too.
How special to have tea in this sweet little shop,
tucked in a neighborhood of historic homes.
Our tea was an English black tea, Typhoo,
made just right (just like Goldilocks would say).
Then we had a lovely salad and almond brie tart.
Followed by the three tiers of fresh fruit,
apricot scones with cream, and sandwiches
of turkey on a croissant, cucumber, and avocado wrap.
Sweets finished off the celebration with a Happy Birthday cookie,
chocolate vanilla cupcake, and lemon sorbet with blueberries.
Not in the picture was a bear that danced for us a Happy Birthday wish.
It was delightful day of tea and celebration.
Do you have special traditions for celebrating your special day?
What do you do?
