Savor the Day....

Like you, I was so impressed with Pat's thoughtfulness. She is a definite joy to know.

Your tea cup/mug is my color blue, too. Gotta love it. And the quote is very special. Amazing that I have never heard of Eleanora Duse before. That's always the joy of these Tea Tuesday posts. They teach so much!

I have a Jessica as well! Feels like I've told you that before now that I'm typing it. Scatterbrained today I guess. Love the blue mug.
