Summer afternoon, summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.

Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.

    1. The teacups were my grandmother’s. I used to stay with here for part of every summer and we would always have tea in them. Sometimes even with her fancy hats and white gloves. Beautiful memories.

      1. I love, love, love Downton Abbey, even though I’m more of a Plantagenet/Tudor girl. I’m basically obsessed with English history. I was following the (unofficial) Dowager Countess on Twitter briefly, but she made a grammar error the other day, so I deleted her. The Dowager Countess does not misspeak!
