It was about 2:30 p.m. and we needed to get out of the house. Little Miss was ready and willing, the older girls not so much. To encourage them to join us, I suggested we walk up Del Mar to the Lavender Tea Lounge. Apparently, it's the hang out for the preteen/young teen group. They were all in. When we got there I discovered this peaceful, fun little hidden gem of a place with lavender and grey decor. And it had amazing light, but it's tiny. We enjoyed our tea and I enjoyed the photo making possibilities.
