Queen Mary 2 Alert … 🚢 I heard from Susan Gannon today, our reservation person for the crossing next May 1, 2022 ~
She asked me to write this quick blog post and say how sorry she is that she hasn’t been able to get back to some of you. She knows she’s been missing you, and wanted me to tell you that for faster service, making sure you get your spot reserved, you can call Cunard Reservations at 800-728-6273 and say you’re with the “Susan Branch Girlfriends Group, Voyage M211, TNM” (if you’re American) or “TN3” if you’re Canadian ~ that way they can keep us all together. And she will follow up with you later! Our girlfriends have now taken 75 staterooms on this ship! Can you believe that? Me either! And I’ve been helping to figure out the Most Wonderful Tours I promise you are going to LOVE! Three parts of the country, gardens, tea rooms, castles, cathedrals, British film locations (the good ones), history, charm, lambs, cottages, I can’t WAIT to tell you about them ~ Can’t WAIT meet everyone on the back of the ship to raise a glass of bubbly in a bon voyage toast as we sail by Lady Liberty and out of New York Harbor together ~ both in real time, and in arm-chair-travel time! On our way to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee with the Queen! Only one year from now! Much more to come!
What else? I bought a new computer! I thought I should get it now so it will be nicely broken-in for our trip! It’s now updating my photo library, a very long update considering the number of photos I have! Soon I’ll be updating the blog with all the new news! Until then, Alo-Ha-Ha, arrivederci, and adios! See you soon! Your Girlfriend, Susan XOXO
Oh! Yes please, very much, I would like to be entered in the drawing for that daring 4th of July cup! Pick me! Pick me!
I sat down with a cup of tea to have while I read the newest blog post. Preordered the mugs and enjoyed the time spent reading about lovely things. Thank you, Susan!
Oh, my, so much deliciousness and beauty and love!
I, too, will have to follow you virtually, this time, but I am sure it it’ll be the trip of a lifetime.
I love your cups!
So excited for the cruise. Will look at the English tours now !
. Will look at the English tours now ! Would love to win a cup !
I adore your positive energy! You always see the good in every day. Thank you Sysan!
Dear Susan, Thank You for being such a bright spot in my day! You bring laughter and joy through your Blog. I enjoy seeing your flowers in the garden…your sweet kitty and beautiful quilts. I live in Florida so it feels like summer has been here and hot for awhile already. Those beautiful Peonies were my Moms favorite in Michigan but those don’t grow this far south. Those buds were so beautiful in your photos. Your new teacups are beautiful! I love the ones of yours I own. I make tea and drink out of the apple and the New England Corgi cup constantly. They serve the perfect cup of tea! I would enjoy adding another one from you to my collection 🙂 Hugs, Suzanne
Ooh, I’d be delighted to receive any one of your tea cups!
Ooh, this post is such joy to read and lightens my day. I’d be most grateful to be entered into your teacup raffle. Yippee!
I have long been a fan of yours. ; ) Thank you for sharing your enchanted life with the world. I sincerely hope you will decide to place another order of the 4th of July cups. It’s a special design. I’m happy for whoever wins it. My real wish is that the cup be made available again as I would happily buy several! The trip to England sounds a dream. I hope everyone is safe and has the time of their life!
Beautifully done, as always. Such a great treat and thank you.
Susan – loved this lengthy blog post! Can’t wait to see photos oh your Dahlias! Isn’t your Joe a dear to plant them for you. I, too, adore anything old, and my kitchen windowsill is one f my favorite places in my home, too! One old ‘thing’ that I have and won’t part with is a selection of Susan Branch place cards from the 90’s of hats and champagne glasses and pansies! Some are even used with my name on them, but they were the last of each and I still love them when I find them. Anyways, thanks and – yes, I would love that 4th mug! Enjoy summer!
Always such a pleasure to drink in your beautiful illustrations and happy thoughts! 🙂
Wishing I could attend your yardsale for some of your linens! The cups are adorable!
Please enter me in the drawing! Enjoyed your posts and the pictures of the flowers!
I just loved opening up your blog post, turning the Musica up and soaking in ALL the Good News! thank you for bring the Cheer to my desktop. 🙂
