i brought my 5 piece silver tea set that i pulled out of the box that morning. it was a tea set i had begged my mom to buy me when i was 8 and i never opened it. i never thought at 18 it would be the day. alex poured the passion peach tea which we sipped out of our favorite mugs and set out mini brownies and raspberries. the sun started to rise and some runners passed us sitting there having a tea party at 5am...awkward! it was such a thrilling experience. we sat and told our secrets of summer and plans for the fall. we talked about boys and music and ice cream. it was perfect.
one the sun had risen we walked out toward the river where a smokey fog had begun to cover the water. it was beautiful and we danced around taking pictures. again more runners passed and we laughed so much.
later we hopped the fence to the japanese gardens and took pictures on the bridges and in the little houses completely ignoring the "call for reservations for photography use" sign. we looked ridiculous with the self timer setting it then running back and forth to see if our pictures came out. it was so much fun and we were done by 8am feeling refreshed for the rest of the day.
a sunrise tea party is definitely happening again.
