Before I begin sharing pictures from my recent England and Paris trip I thought I'd share some recent happenings so I don't get too far behind.
We returned home from Paris on Sunday evening, September 3rd, and even though we had a wonderful time, there's no place like home! Monday was Labor Day and we stayed home the entire day trying to catch up. On Wednesday, a Dr.'s appointment revealed I had COVID! I escaped it throughout the entire pandemic, but I'm convinced I got the virus on the 8-hour flight home with its recirculating air. Unfortunately I didn't wear a mask. I was quarantined and side-lined with a busy schedule ahead.
The Whitney Autumn & Apples tea was September 16th and I had been asked to make 25 favors. My hubby shopped for the supplies and when I started feeling better I got them made.
I asked for the 16th off from work months ago because I scheduled a tea for the ladies at my church that day, not knowing it was going to conflict with the Whitney event. The church favors were small jars of Dickinson's strawberry jam purchased before I left on my trip, so all I had to do when I got home was put them in organza gift bags with a little fall colored shred.
