the loveliest tea party birthday for {ALISHA}

About a year and a half ago I got to help my sweet friend Alisha celebrate her birthday with a grown-up tea party.We went to San Francisco for a lovely afternoon at Crown & Crumpet. It has recently moved locations, but let me tell you that I cannot wait to check out the new spot when I get the chance. The decor and atmosphere were lovely and the food & tea were even better!
This creative girl made us little tea box favors…even though it was for her birthday…how cute is that?
These home-made crumpets were so good that I went on a crumpet kick for a while after I had them. Trader Joe makes some that you can toast up and drizzle with butter and honey…YUM! I’m licking my lips just thinking about it!
Pretty Lady…Love this Girl!
I love Alisha! Let me count the ways! I love her parents & siblings {they have been dear family friends for years} and I love her hubby and kids. We went to high school together and church youth group. She moved back to the Bay Area around the same time as us and it was such a treat to get to know her again after years of living apart. Our kids are pretty close in age and love playing together! I trust her so much that she is the person I called to pick up Paige the day my dad died. She took her and kept her busy and happy and fed her…I was so comforted in knowing that Paige was in good hands while we were at the hospital. She loves her family so well, loves God, is a loyal friend and always makes me laugh! Lets just say I adore this sweet, creative, funny, loving girl!
Alisha with her mom and sister…it was a sunny & beautiful day in the City!
And then it was time to go.
look at these cute girls…they have been friends since high school…i love it!

a life on hold

While Aaron has been in fire academy & we’ve been living here at my parents our life has felt sort of “on hold” and temporary. Needless to say this is kind of tough on a marriage and the occasional date is required to stay in tact. So thanks to the help of family to watch our kids we had the best date in the City last Saturday {we were unofficially celebrating the close of academy life and welcoming a new life in the Bay Area and the hope of great new things to come}!
