This past weekend was absolutely Fabulous! I was able to spend my 21st birthday with those whom I love most! My mom and I had been planning to tea party for a few months now, and it was exactly how I envisioned it!!

Before everyone arrived, I opened my gifts from my parents. I got 2 more charms for my Pandora bracelet, and the complete series of "I dream of Jeanie"!! I was sooooooo surprised! Pretty much every morning while we were in Maine, I refused to go to the beach until I had watched the back to back episodes on TV-land.

After that, mom and I began setting up for the tea party!

The finished product:

I bought a huge packet of a whole bunch of different fruit herbal teas. Peach was by far my favourite!

Sipping tea (please note the pinky!)

The first bunch of the guests

Love these girls!!

Once everyone had left, my parents and I ordered pizza, got into our PJs and watched the Masterpiece Theater version of: "Sense and Sensibility". 

I still can't believe how quickly this year has gone by! I have only just gotten used to the fact that I was 20.. and now I'm 21!!! What the WHAT!????!!!!!!

Definitely one of my favourite birthdays!!! So grateful for the people in my life.
