I've been married to this Sailor for years now... 30 years to be exact, so it was time to celebrate and what better way to celebrate than with my favorite guy and TEA!
We journeyed north to West Baden Springs Hotel in French Lick, IN. This place was built in the early 20th century way out in the country and had an authentic "Old World" feel to it. I was smitten the moment I saw the red dome peak through the tree tops.
First stop was tea and what a tea it was! Delicious and elegant and so deeply enjoyed by both of us.
The harpist was lovely and had a beautiful smile and we could have lingered all day just to listen to her play but there was more to do on this celebratory get-away...
Next day, next stop was in Danville, KY, home of Elmwood Inn Fine Teas. I had placed an order for the tearoom before our trip and so I thought maybe, just maybe we could stop by and pick it up in person.
We got to sample a few teas I'd been interested in and had time to visit with my first tea mentor, Mr. Bruce Richardson and his lovely wife, Shelley. I was thrilled and could have stayed awhile longer but it was time to head home.
After all, after 30 years of marriage we had this beautiful bunch to get back to. My, it's been a spectacular 3 decades!
