It was an afternoon of girl mojo as I grabbed mom, Tea and one of Tea’s besties (and girls that we love), Jody, for a tea party to celebrate our girl turning 24! Woohoo! Can I just say — even though I’m the one that arranged it — that it was just tons of fun for all four of us? The Queen Mary Tea Room is this small, ridiculously ornate, extremely floral spot near UW in Seattle that plops you down in your own little London and then feeds you too much. I kid you not. We had the formal afternoon tea and check out everything we got!
