Simply a Moment

Today is the 15th of the month and time for Alexa's simply a moment. I meant to post this last night and didn't get around to it. Today is now the 16th.

The Smart Party
The room is cosy and quiet. Just for a split second, while we all oooh and aahhh over the cakes. It was a super idea of Sarah's to take our Danish friend out for Afternoon Tea. So very English.

How the years have flown by since I first met Gitte, standing in her shop with a new baby. In that time she has become very dear to me.....how lucky was I (was we) to find such a lovely friend and one who loves to scrapbook.

The time has come, the one I dreaded. To enjoy her company before she leaves for her homeland. She has assured us she will blog regularly so we can follow the progress of her new life and the renovations of her new home. Today is not about how I (or even we) feel, it is about wishing our darling friend the best of luck with her new life.

 I thank Alexa for her monthly moment that gave me the prompt to record a special moment.

  1. Lovely cake photo!

    It's always difficult when a friend moves away - especially if it's quite a distance. How lovely that you had all that time to be friends together and get to know each other, so that now Gitte is going back to Denmark, you all want to stay in touch. And Yay for blogs!
    Hope you manage to keep in touch with your lovely friend and perhaps fit in the odd visit too - Denmark is a lovely country.

  2. What a lovely tribute to someone who has clearly meant, and means, much to you ... You write so poignantly that I have a lump in my throat. Hoping that your warm friendship will continue across the miles and you will get to visit each other. Thank-you so much for taking part today and for linking up :). I'm just going to have to go and find some cake ...

  3. Yum the cake looks yummy. My aunt and uncle live in Denmark - Copenhagen - and we keep meaning to go and visit them. Perhaps you could take the boys there on a holiday?

  7. Parting is always such a sweet sorrow...I know you'll have many memories that you will share with one another via your layouts and blogs. The sweets look delectable, as was your very poignant retelling of such a sweet and sorrowful moment.

    Cheers~

  8. I can't think of a better way to spend time with a dear friend than over a pot of tea! Your tea treats look yummy!

  9. A lovely way of capturing such a special moment. I know exactly how you feel - I had to waive off my best friend to Adelaide a few years ago and it was so tough. Keep smiling and be thankful we live in the age we do with facebook, email and blogs as that makes the keeping in touch so much easier x

  15. That's such a nice moment - it's always hard to say goodbye to a good friend but can't think of a better way than over some tea and cakes! Blogging is a great way to keep in touch and see what is going on in each others lives. Your friend is just a click away :)
