The Tale of the Teapot

The best thing we did during my stay in Vegas requires a little backstory.

I'm a great fan of tea drinking. In particular, I'm fond of a lot of British and Japanese teas.

18 years ago, when she was 10 years old, Jorjanna gave me a very nice Lodge Tea Kettle for my birthday and I made her a promise that we would "season" the kettle together and share the first pot of tea.

Later, I left Los Angeles for Berkeley and we never got to have that pot of tea. But I always hoped that we would so I kept the pot in it's original box and never used it.

For some reason, later on we just never seemed to get around to it.

So on this trip, I brought the teapot with me and, at long last, we shared that first pot. I have some pictures below and, in one, you'll see a very happy dad with his sweetheart! Love you, sweetie!
