I can highly recommend the wonderfully elegant experience. Three friends and I treated another delightful lady to tea Saturday, November 6.  This friend has been such a benefactress to us all and greatly enriched our lives.  She is 80+ years young and continues to inspire us all to acheive more with our lives.

This was a wonderful two hours spent with loving friends, in a beautiful setting, enjoying each other, and absolutely delicious food.
