Pinky Up

Mother’s Day weekend was fabulous.

Special cards and handmade gifts from the two that made me a mama. Pedicures. Meals treated to by Gramma and prepared by Jay. Mango margaritas. Homemade Cake Batter ice cream. Beautiful Mother’s Day mass. Fancy tea at a local tea house. Pool time. Taking a nap under an open window letting through a cool breeze.

It was just what I needed.

Here are some Mama’s Day moments…

{clotted cream}

{beautiful words}

{the scones were my fave ~ with clotted cream and blackberry preserves}

{petit fours and other miniature desserts}

{my mama, aka gramma}

{mama and her babies ~ elliott was upset they didn’t serve pancakes!}


I LOVE high teas. I wish I could attend/have them weekly, but enjoying them only once in a while for special occasions maintains their charm, I think.

I have fond memories of each and every tea I have attended…to name a couple, The Empress Hotel in Victoria and The Hotel Del Coronado. Holden’s Baby Shower was held at the cutest little tea house in Gilroy, Jordan Rose Tea Haven, which is no longer in business unfortunately, but that is one special day that I will never forget.

This Mother’s Day Tea was no exception…once we diverted Elliott’s attention away from pancakes and found a butterscotch scone, all was well with the world.

Thanks babe, for the special treat.

Putting up my pinky and sipping with four of my favorite people made me feel like royalty!

P.S. Jay made beef kebab and saffron rice for din din…

It was delish, babe. Thanks, again & again!

  1. It was a very special day…from the beautiful message from Father Dave to the last crumb on the tea plate. Love our family!
