Day 18

Afternoon Tea

This time of year presents so many special opportunities to get together with friends and family. For me, this holiday season is extra special with a little one in tow, and I can’t wait to introduce our baby girl to the many traditions that make the Christmas season so special in our family. Aside from decorating the tree and seeing the Nutcracker, some of my fondest holiday memories are of afternoon tea with my mother and late grandmother—the two women after whom Colette was named. I so look forward to many years of carrying on this tradition with Coco—to say nothing of the many pretend tea parties that will undoubtedly take place in the playroom.
