When planning a trip to Yosemite in August, you know its going to be hot! We made sure to head out at the break of dawn each morning. While rolling out of bed that early was difficult, getting to see the sun peeking out and beating the crowds made the bleary eyes well worth it! […]

In August we took a family trip to Yosemite. Its about a three hour drive to get there from the Bay Area so there really is no excuse for not getting out and enjoying the natural beauty there! There are several entrances to the 1,200 square miles of Yosemite National Park, but the main gateway is […]

We’ve gotten tea together in Colonial Williamsburg, on Victoria Island, traditional British tea in England, and in cozy Southern tea rooms in Texas, but one of the most stunning places that we’ve had tea together is at […]
