Afternoon Tea With My Bestie

Seasons come and seasons go, years pass us by, and tomorrow's a promise. Whirlwinds of time can leave  rubble, if not challenged, and hinder one's desire.  Birds migrate in search of belonging, seeking refuge, a haven, a cocoon of a kind. My heart beats for a kindred spirit, one neither boredom or inequities will ever cease. Whispering to each other of life's sweet journey, may it be joy or any trajectory, we are there for each other; a friendship promised to last till eternity.
Friendships are paramount to ones health and well being. They bring sunshine, laughter, wisdom and comfort every time.
My dearest friend and her husband came over for a late afternoon tea a few weeks ago. I was able to bake some cupcakes and make some smoked salmon and egg sandwiches with some berries on the side.

Thank you friends for visiting. Hope you are all well.

This week I'm joining Terri Of artful affirmation

  we sat by the tea light candles, chatting away listening to the distant echo of the night.

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother... Proverbs 18:24

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work; if one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him...Ecclesiastes 4:9-10



  1. You have the best smile! Thank you for sharing all your friendship fun!

  2. It is always fun to have your best friend over to chat and for tea. Love the heartshaped sandwiches, that is new to me. Your pictures and words make me smile.

  3. You are so right...the best things in life really are free. I am glad you had such a good visit with your best friend. Your tea table looks so lovely, and so cheery too with that red checked table cloth, and your brightly colored flowers and berries. I am sure your friend was delighted with your effort. I love your heart shaped sandwiches!
