Tea for Two

Posted on: August 26, 2015

Yesterday, After taking a package to mail off to our daughter at graduate school in Boston, 

My husband surprised me with a stop in a wonderful tea shop,


I haven’t worn my soft jogger pants as much this season I did last year.  

DH said he loved them with my Clark’s wedges much better than the flats I wore them 

with last season… 


Quintin’s Tea was a delightful place and we had so much fun smelling all the loose leaf

varieties.  We both chose a flavor and enjoyed a cup in the quaint tea room.  

I ended up buying a Harney & Son’s tin of Birthday Tea, 

which we plan to enjoy on our birthday’s which are just a week apart.  

You can see their website here, but if in the Virginia Beach area , you should stop in just for the experience. 


It was very fun way to spend a lazy summer afternoon.  

I know we will do so again very soon, as I make plans to create a tea and coffee bar .  

My very sentimental husband took a sharpie and wrote the date on the bottom of the tea tin,

to commemorate the event.  


I love this shocking pink shade of my Isaac Mizrahi peplum top

Dear Readers,  I am a day behind because my darn modem was messing up last night.  After hitting it a few times, my son got it back to working again today, lol.  He saved us from going out to buy a new one today….

And now onto my thoughts for this very sad day….

Here in Virginia a gunman shot a reporter and her photographer on live tv 

all on behalf of creating a race war and my heart is very heavy. 

The country that I love that has a strong history of creating social change via 

peaceful protests is in trouble .  

I fear greatly that this is how groups like ISIS are formed by those wanting destruction.  

I pray that some strong leaders come forth to lead in a positive manner to honor 

the legacy of Martin Luther King.  

I don’t get political on my blog, but just wanted to put my prayer for this country out there. 


I am grateful to my DH for investigating and finding a tea shop right in my own neighborhood and surprising me with a fun afternoon. 

I am grateful that my oldest stopped by today for a chat, as he is very busy with school and work. 

I am grateful that my son cooperated and got started back on finishing his Geometry class. 

I am grateful for a fun chat with my daughter and her calling to share her new adventure internship counseling at a brand new charter school.  

I am grateful for the Uber driver who worked with my DD when she requested a ride today, after missing her bus, in the rain and not even knowing where she was to direct the driver (apparently she had to walk away from the bus station due to all the NO STANDING signs to a nearby parking lot)

A beautiful outfit. With your hair, this pink is a must! Glad you had a nice day
And thanks for sharing

Very appropriate prayer! I am also praying for strong leaders and God to see our country through these times.

Thank you, Donna I am sure there are many joining us in these prayers.
