Mommy, Me and Crown City Tea

Today I took one of my daughters to her first tea. We went to one of my all time favorite towns....Coronado! I LOVE that town. It is full of beautiful houses, wonderful shops and of course, the famous Hotel Del Coronado. We had an absolutely delightful time and Katee learned some very valuable lessons. She is now extremely thankful that she wasn't born in the Victorian Era, tea is very yummy with 4 lumps of sugar and cream and not everyone supplies premium drinking water for my water snob. The Tea room was brimming full with antiques, beautiful tea sets and trinkets and baubbles. Art work adorned the wall, framed ornately. Porcelain dolls, mirrors and gawgeous chandliers! It was truly the afternoon break that I needed.
