This week, I leave for London.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OMG IT’S TIME!!!
There are so many things I’m excited about for this trip and I’m focusing on those and not my nerves.
So to kick off vacation right (once I arrive), I scheduled an Afternoon Tea session at Fortnum & Mason’s Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon at the recommendation of my food guru, Robin.
And to prepare for my formal English tea service (because I’m not that fancy), I went with two friends to high tea at The Drake’s Palm Court in Chicago. It’s not London, but it gave me a chance to observe and prepare myself because, I don’t want to that girl at tea.
Okay, I don’t know that much about tea but it’s fancy and fun experience and I am really kind of digging it.
So here are some photos to show a lovely afternoon with good friends, conversation and snacks. Pinkies up!

Menu and fancy china. Obviously, tea is on the menu
Three tiers of joy. My favorite: second tier in the center. Roast beef w/horseradish. Divine
