They meet monthly, and they have a marvelous time. I was told they have so much fun, it's practically illegal, and I believe it!
In addition to being loads of fun, they also excel at hospitality. My sister-in-law and I were welcomed into the group with open arms.
We had the most lavish and amazing high tea with so much yummy food. Cucumber sandwiches, raspberry cold soup, lady fingers, mint chocolate cakes, chicken salad, mini quiches, strawberries, and so much more. And Earl Grey tea.
In addition to the wonderful meal, we also each got to choose our own teacup and matching saucer from the china cabinet. I chose a pretty one with black-eyed susans.
And even more fun...we each chose a hat from the box our hostess had for us.
After our meal and much laughter, they invited me to talk about the book they had just read, A Bride's Portrait of Dodge County, KS, and a little bit about how I became a writer.
Next month they're reading Katie Ganshert's Wildflowers from Winter!
Here are a couple of pictures from the day.
|This is my adorable sister-in-law Linda in her hat. We had such a good time!|
|Here are the Tantalizing Ladies! They are so much fun! That's a copy of A Bride's Portrait of Dodge City, KS on the table. Don't you love our hats?|
