Southern Belle

Madeline and I had a very special Saturday morning. We sipped white truffle tea, wore elegant hats and nibbled on scones and cucumber sandwiches at the Savannah Tea House in downtown Nashville with a group of our mommy-daughter friends.

Madeline choose a red feathered hat and a dainty peacock teacup and saucer, then carefully dropped individual sugar cubes into her tea with tiny tongs. She was so intent on using ladylike manners ("Mommy, can I run here?")...until the sherbet came out after our finger sandwiches and then she slurped up hers and mine.

I told her it was a day I'll never forget, and I meant it. After sweet outings like that, for just a moment, it's fun to think forward about about proms, first dates, wedding showers, pedicures and back-to-school shopping trips. We have so much girly fun ahead, Miss Madeline May!

This is adorable! How sweet. I want to start doing more mommmy-daughter dates too. Wish we lived closer so we could do them together!
