Who Doesn’t LOVE a Tea Party?

{Editor’s Note: There are so many fabulous annual events in Bozeman, it’s hard to pick a favorite. But I can authentically say, the Christmas Tea, hosted by the lovely folks from Friends of the Story Mansion ranks in the Top Ten. Maybe it reminds me of tea parties from years gone by, or the fact I get to dress up and sip tea from fancy China cups, or simply the fellowship – whatever the case, I anxiously await this holiday event every year. 

If you have not participated in this event – don’t miss your chance! The Christmas Tea is being held at the historic Story Mansion on Sunday, December 2nd with seatings at noon and 3pm. Won’t you join the fun?}

Ruby knows how to drink her tea…pinky’s out…

The lovely Gilbreth Girls!

A special thank you to the Friends of the Story Mansion for once again hosting a lovely Christmas tea party. Not only do the Friends of the Story supply the tea and delicious treats, they also organize the borrowing of the table decor and China from local residents. In fact, one of the “Story Friends” who was serving us tea, shared that the China on our table belonged to her Grandmother. (I told you it was one of my favorite local events – the sense of community and fellowship is overwhelming. It literally warms my heart.)

Everyone at the Walters table “voted” to come back again next year.

Snowy Christmas Stroll

It wasn’t until the last minute that I decided to “cowgirl up” and attend the 31st Annual Bozeman Christmas Stroll. Since Sexy Hubby was still recovering from his back issues, and I was still not 100% on my game, I debated, then decided, I simply couldn’t miss it.

It was picture perfect with snow lightly falling and not cold (last year it was a nippy 12 degrees!), thus I layered up and made my way to Main Street.

Just me and The Rebel.

Love the silver number!

I stopped in Hey Dey and admired all their lovely Christmas table displays…

Loved the darling Montana magnets!!!

And look what the “Bobcat” dragged in – one-happy-advancing-to-the-next-playoff-round fan!!!  Way to go MSU!!

Bundled buddies all in a row…

There was no pomp and circumstance for me this year.

No treats. No fancy toddies. (It was killing me that I wasn’t feeling up to street treats and a toddy!)

About all I could handle was some cool strolling, and a few photographs.

There’s always a toddy for dreams to come to true…
