So, when I was preparing for our tea party, I realized how many friends I have and how generous they are. . . the party was just for Sarah and myself, but there were reminders of everyone there.  As I set the table, I was very happy to be able to use my yellow napkin rings, which were a gift from Maria.  She bought them for me ages ago to match this yellow napkin holder that I bought in Miami on a trip to visit Crissy.  I’ve never had an occasion to use them before, but they were PERFECT for the tea party.  Later, on Friday evening, I was making thumbprint cookies, a recipe from Mrs. Jeanette.  And when it got time to fill the cookies with jelly, I used grape jelly from my sister-in-law, Kim, and guava paste from Alex’s friend, Carmen.  The teapot is mom’s (or was, rather, since I suppose it’s not ever going back to her), and the two tiered tray was inspired by Pinterest, and happened because Erin and I were so excited by the idea and exchanged ideas and bounced ideas off of each other.  It was such a little gathering, but it reminded me that the things we surround ourselves with are a reflection of our whole selves and the people we hold close to us. . .
