two o’clock tea

I’ve been promising the girls a tea party and decided today was the day. I think we all needed a boost today.

Here are Emma and Sarah’s special tea cups, filled with a very weak chai latte kind of concoction. Take a pot of milk, add lots of honey and wave one chai teabag in there for flavour. Frothy milk on top and macaroons on the side make it feel positively royal.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
