Every year my mother, sister, my daughter and I like to have a “girl’s day out” or a “girl’s weekend”. The last trip we took was to the Biltmore in North Carolina during the spring time. This year my sister and her husband came to visit for Thanksgiving so we decided to have a girl’s afternoon tea at The Ritz Carlton in Buckhead, Georgia. Off we went the day before Thanksgiving to have our tea.
First our tea of choice was poured. Mine was the Blackberry Tea.
Then delicate tea sandwiches were brought out. Just look at the variety of sandwiches to choose from. Each one was absolutely delicious.
As we savored each bite we talked about different things and enjoyed the ambiance surrounding us. Even my teenage daughter was impressed and it takes a lot to a compliment out of her.
As we finished the sandwiches and more tea was poured by our hostesses, the scones were brought to our table. The scones were served with clotted cream, lemon curd and strawberry preserves. Yum!

Each morning when I wake up, I have so much on my mind. First is to give thanks to God. Then get my daughter up and to school. That is a process in itself! Then there is my tea before I can actually function for the day and then I move on to work related items. I have the great privilege of working in the book industry. Which is perfect because one of the things I always have on my mind is, books. *I can imagine my daughter saying to me if she were watching me type this, “No…who would have thought?”* Got to love teenagers. Anyhow, I thought I would share a few pictures of some books I’d like to get to in the next foreseeable future. Of course I will be posting more titles later on. I’m not going to let you off the hook that easily. *smiles* I know many of you will want to add these to your never ending to-read list. Or for those of you who are looking for a good book. Or you are looking for great gift ideas for Christmas. Here you go. Enjoy!
