A revolving door.....

"The reality is that the AWC of London has a revolving door,
some come and some go,
and some even come back for more!
The memories are many, the friendships are true,
joy and happiness are our wish for you!
 Again, we say goodbye to another good friend. Becky managed to touch the heart of so many women in her short year and half. These are just some fun pictures of her farewell party at the Admiral Codrington...
Imagine ...a cocktail party at Tea Time? Canapes of Spring Pea and Mint Soup, Mini Yorkshire Dale Sausages. Not pictured are the Goat's Cheese Tartlets, Chili Salt Squid, and Smoked Haddock Fishcakes! Now you aren't going to get that at "American Joe's"!
I can totally embarrass my family when I cry at the airport - and that is when I see STRANGERS saying goodbye! So instead of a speech, which I surely would have blown, I wrote a was a hit...laughter instead of tears!
Our gift was the Timothy Richard's bookends featuring a red phone booth and a red pillar box (mail box) British! We also signed our favourite recipes in Jamie Oliver's newest cookbook. Becky was entertained with the comments!
As you cross the pond to the Lone Star State,
remember your adventure in London,
wasn't it great?!!!

The party was such a special tribute to Becky! And your creativity with that poem was unbeatable! I know she was overwhelmed with so much love.
