…..filled with so much love and the joy of friendship.  A ‘Thank You’ tea given by dear Amy, to celebrate everyone who treated me on my birthday that turned out to be a true celebration of love and friendship. We were greeted by celestial music from Karina Ward, harpist extraordinaire! Oh my……how exquisitely lovely!
