TALES FROM ATLANTA: HIGH TEA AT TIPPLE …

This week while travelling to Atlanta I had the chance to attend High Tea at Tipple and Rose Tea Parlor and Apothecary in the Virginia Highlands area. It was such a wonderful way to spend an afternoon with girlfriends! I’ve tried high tea services at several different hotels and restaurants around the country, and I highly recommend this activity if you’re looking for fun ways to treat yourself or a loved one during the holiday season.  Our experience at Tipple and Rose was particularly special because this little tea parlor has a wonderful charm to it and is dedicated solely to the love of tea and local products. So lovely!

WEEKEND ENTERTAINMENT IDEA – HORSE RACING FUN

This past weekend several friends and I got all dressed up for a (rainy) day at the Arlington Park racetrack in Chicago, and it was so much fun. I highly recommend this weekend activity if you’re looking for ideas to change it up as the weather gets warmer. And if you aren’t near a racetrack, this would be THE weekend of all weekends to host a racing viewing party – it’s the 2015 Belmont Stakes
