I haven't been able to share this due to computer issues, however, I think I've found a way! :) We decided to do "happy" things to honor this precious girl on Saturday, June 21st. She would love that!

We had "High Tea" in the afternoon in Dallas at Lavendou Bistro Provençal
It's such a beautiful and quaint restaurant and the service is impeccable. If you're in the Dallas area, I highly recommend that you make the time to visit and relax. This is their website and they are on Facebook too.
This was something we had planned to do with Abby, however, we didn't make it. :( Make the time, my friends, to do the things you or your family/friends want to do! You never know when you might not have the opportunity.
Here's a sampling of the goodies served with our tea ~
The flowers were for our guest, Miss E. She's the daughter of a friend of ours and loves tea! I wish I could share a photo of her...just adorable. She's just had a birthday and turned 7. She has an incredible personality and dresses herself in style but appropriately. She loved the flowers and immediately chose one of the roses for her babysitter. (Her parents were on vacation and she and her 4 year old brother were staying with the grandparents.) The sitter was wonderful in taking them to their activities, etc. Miss E immediately presented the sitter with the chosen rose when we took her home ~ so precious and giving!
We had been there awhile and Miss E needed to go to the restoom. She advised us she knew where to go, she'd been there before. :) There were only 3 people left in the restaurant and were seated in the front plus we could see the path to the ladies room. In her absence, the manager stopped by to see if we needed anything and if this was a special occasion. We explained why we were there and he expressed his condolences. He offered us a mimosa and of course, we were happy with that! He brought Miss E orange juice in a champagne flute and she thought we were all having only OJ. :)
We had a balloon release that evening and I will try and share those photos later. Please know that I haven't been able to "edit" photos so it is what it is!
