In a week, Kavi will turn 10, but we’ll be full swing into anniversary party guests & prep at that point, and we didn’t want her birthday to get lost in all that. So we celebrated part of it a little early, with a birthday tea party at Serenitea (a local black woman-owned business), which was just lovely. The scones there are delicious — I wish I had her recipe!
The girls had a terrific time, and Anand got to demonstrate his pinky-out tea-drinking technique, which he somehow knows about from tv even though he’s never had tea before. Their strawberry-chocolate rooibos herbal tea was a big hit with the kids.
