I am about to gratuitously frost this blog with an icing full of photos from Lucy's tea party on Saturday. It was given by Lucy's mother-in-law, hosted at our mother's home, in celebration of the soon-to-be born Betsy Beesley.
The table was full of treats, English scones, clotted cream, tea sandwiches, cupcakes and crackers. I rolled out my fruit tarts topped off with strawberries, raspberries and mandarin oranges. The only reason I just included that sentence is to remind me that sometimes I am NOT lazy, even though most of the time I AM lazy. Tea in bone china tea cups were sipped while conversations endured. I was struck by the beautiful the women in my life. Just lovely:
Lucy's baby is set to arrive sometime this month. Or next month. She doesn't behold herself to due dates. Smart child.
Gosh Alrighty I can't wait.
p.s. As a way of support and assistance with your Mother's Day gifts, I am suggesting a little book I contributed to called, the mother in me. The feel of the book is very sweet and yet real, with ideas ranging from pregnancy to infertility. You can purchase on Amazon here.
