This is where I went to a Bridal Shower yesterday (March 22, 2008). This is the Dunhill Hotel in Charlotte, NC, which is the oldest hotel in Charlotte. We had a lovely time! We had a high tea of sorts and everything was delicious!! We were all asked to sign a Chef apron for the Bride-to-Be, so we all left our best wishes on that. Then we were ushered to one long table in the middle of the room. On the table there were about 4-5 antique silver tea services on magnificent silver trays waiting for us. There were about 6 varieties of tea to choose from and they came in those wonderful silk tea triangles! We then were served scones, mini muffins, triangle sandwiches (herbed egg salad, cream cheese with cucumber, cream cheese with salmon and dill) and then the third course was desserts!! The desserts consisted of Key Lime bars, mini strawberry cheesecakes and mini cream puffs filled with cream laced with Bailey's!! The Bride-to-Be got some lovely gifts and she especially loved the Cocktail Shaker and 6 martini glasses Megan and I gave her. It was a lovely shower had by all!

Sherri, I love the idea of High Tea for a bridal shower! I'll have to file that away for 'someday'!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
