Oh, what a morning

Yesterday it was time for my monthly coffee get-together with the other women from the military base where my husband works to learn more about each other’s cultures, raise some money for local charities and most importantly eating food from the host country!

This month the USA ladies got together the Canadian lady and made a North America coffee morning.
