Today was a day filled with excitement, fun and sadness all at the same time. Our only daughter was heading to London to complete the first semester of her Junior year in college. She is the glue that holds the boys together and my right arm and we will all miss her dearly. She is about to begin an adventure though that is an experience of a lifetime and I am beyond thrilled that she is able to do this. She was accepted at the school that she applied to in London where she will be enrolled in classes as well as participating in an internship with a PR Firm. She was a bundle of excitement, preparedness and nervousness all rolled into one, the last few weeks. To put her at ease and celebrate her departure we had a little English Brunch for her today. My lovely British friend lent me a British flag to set the tone.
One cannot have a proper English affair without tea
and scones with lemon curd and raspberry jam!
A Buffet table filled with traditional English fare
as well as some other foods from countries she hopes to visit.
(You cannot have a brunch without quiche.)
We threw in a some little goodies wrapped in adorable Paris wrap from Cavallini Press
and a lot of LOVE and well wishes from family and it was a perfect send off!
Sending prayers and wishes for safe travels across the pond Kelsey~
