hanamiandhightea2 Last Friday, I turned 36 (and proud to say so)!  A few good friends gathered at our humble abode to enjoy the blossoms along our street (photos to come in the next few days as they thicken up) and to partake in an almost traditional high tea (there was coffee, too, but we’re keeping that quiet.) Thank you for a wonderful evening to all who came – I had a ball! A special thank you to little Takumi who provided some live music!
