Tea for Two

During Princess' high school years we have made 
it a tradition to have a back-to-school lunch
at the Glenwood Tea Room.

School will begin on Monday.
Princess will be a Senior.
The tradition ends with today's lunch.
*sob* boo hoo* waah*
Fancy napkins.
Tea Cups on quilts.

We had Strawberry iced tea,
dainty little finger sandwiches,
and a cup of their signature soup.
School starts on Monday!

Just a side note:  Our table was directly beside
the table of two women who appeared to be
in their 80's.  Their voices were a little loud
so we were privy to their conversation.
They provided out entertainment as they
chatted about their families and their
church activities.
Grand ladies, both of them!

How nice to have the ladies nearby for your entertainment. I am sure I would like your tea shop and can understand why Princess being a senior can make you want to shed a tear or at least tear up.

How special is that? But I understand your sadness, too. Being a woman who likes to savor every moment, I am sure you will make this senior year a memorable one together. Blessings.

Oh, Sweet Tea
My granddaughters love to go to a tea room with me and my daughter.

So I LOVE your tradition. Good luck to the senior.

(And sniffling is absolutely understandable in these circumstances.) :)

What a sweet tradition. I wish we had a tea room nearby. My daughter is married but I know she would enjoy doing this with me. We are both tea-obsessed.

Your tradition with Princess will be missed as the years go by. But she will always remember. xo, Susie

What a fun tradition. Just remember that Princess being a senior and looking toward graduation means she is moving in just the direction she should be. Our back to school activity will be a picnic next week....if a tea room saw us coming they would be afraid, very afraid. I do like to go to the tea room here with my grandaughters from time to time.

No one has mentioned that the teas don't have to stop! My daughter is starting her final school year before receiving her doctorate, and we've still celebrated our annual back-to-school lunch - all these years.

Princess is beautiful! What a lovely tradition- I love the old fashioned teas. I hope you find a way to continue it through college-

Now, why does the tradition have to end? Can't you make up a new one? She's the same age as my oldest Granddaugter who will be a senior this year too. Can't believe it! It makes me feel really old even though my son was 3 when he had her..and I was only 7 when I had him....Your daughter is so pretty and you both look great!

What a fun tradition. It's hard to see your little girl grow up, isn't it? I had moments where I was so torn between being extremely proud and extremely sad. Sometimes I still miss those days of her being home.

What a fabulous tradition. Don't let it end, keep it up, if possible, every year before college starts! So wonderful. I can't wait to start some traditions with the granddaughter...her arrival is next month!

This is so sweet! I love tradition! Perhaps you will be close and can continue this each year. I love the photos you share.
