Tea on Tuesday 16

Today my Tea is Jasmin because it reminds me of the beach!
My sweet Mother-n-law passed away the first week in June;
it has been so hard for all of us. As a tribute to her, we are all
going to Florida soon for a beach filled vacation.
When my hubby was a kid they would all pile in the
station wagon (2 sisters&1 brother) with dad at the wheel
and his mom wielding the hair brush (in case of any trouble). They
would meet up with 2 or 3 other families (in their station wagons)
and off to Florida they would go!
The stories they tell about their adventures are so funny!
They made so many great family memories in those vacation years.
So, with much happiness, I am gearing up for the beach with my
hubby, 2 almost grown boys and my dear friend and sis-n-law and
her sweet husband- 7 fun relaxing days beach side......hmmm I
can hear the ocean now......
Hope you are having wonderful Tea on Tuesday!
Please visit my friend Kimmie at art in red wagons to
check out everyone having Tea on Tuesday.

    Sending good thoughts for you.


  4. What a pretty sepia colored portrait of your tea today! I hope you have a fun time on your upcoming getaway .... I love the story about the hairbrush :) As a mom, I can relate! That would be a longhaul in a station wagon!

  5. So sorry to read about your loss. I am sure the memories you will make on this trip will help ease the loss your family has felt. I really love the tea cup you have shown. The sepia colors are actually inspiring.

  6. So sorry to hear about your mother-in-law, but what a special way to remember her with a trip to the beach in Florida. Have a wonderful time.

  7. Sorry to hear about your mother-in-law -- I lost mine last year -- but what wonderful memories rekindled in the Florida trip.

  10. Jasmine tea is one of my favorites! Thanks for stopping by my corner of the world. So sorry to hear about the loss of your MIL. My MIL passed away from cancer in June of 2005; but it is also the month that hubby and I met 19 years ago, so it is bittersweet around here. Your beach trip sounds like a lot of fun. Have a fabulous time. Best wishes, Tammy

  11. A trip to the beach sounds refreshing. I'm sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. How nice that you can do something together in her memory.
