My dear friend Kari and I hosted our annual Christmas Tea on Sunday. Being the good friend that she is, Kari not only brought teas, lemons, and two very yummy dishes, but she brought me a gift - a new teapot/warmer. I'll have to invite her over more often!
Kari and I both moved back to Columbus 4 years ago. This is our 4th Tea together in Columbus, and I've now co-hosted the event for 10 years in Memphis, Mexico, and Columbus. It's always a great time to catch up with friends, make new friends, eat some delicious food, and take a breather from the holiday hectic-ness to enjoy the season. (Click any photo to enlarge)

I have very creative friends, as evidenced in the ornaments they selected for the ornament exchange and their holiday dishes.

Some of the beautifully wrapped ornaments
Angelina's beautiful decoration
The Tea was especially wonderful this year given the busy weeks I've had at work lately. It was so great to relax, chat, and enjoy the Christmas holiday a little bit. Thanks to all the ladies who made the day so special.
See you next year!
