The traditions they had were carefully documented in the journals and are still carried out today by the descendants of the family. One such tradition was having visitors stop in for tea time.

Bethany and Meg and Marmalead

Recently we were in Vegas at a conference for makers. It was called Flourish Fusion and it was about running our handmade businesses. So many new friends were made and connections established. We were exploring our hotel which was very cool and artsy - Artisan Hotel https://www.artisanhotel.com/ and had wandered out to the pool area. I struck up a conversation with a couple of guys out there, just being chatty because I  figured they were a part of our conference.
