Did you know that Marie Antoinette had a BFF? Princesse de Lamballe stood by Antoinette during her time as queen when it seemed all of France was against her, including her husband. She was with her during her imprisonment encouraging her and praying for her until the end. Most of us have a best friend, some one who would stand by us through it all, never judging, just there by our side. This Sunday in "Paris" we celebrate these friends with our Valentine Tea. I encourage you all to honor your best friend during Valentine's week end. If they are far away, give them a call. If they are close, take them to lunch or just drop by with a little something that says "Thanks for always being there". Whether it's your best gal pal, your Mom or like me, your sister, we need these folks. Who else can you tell that you ate entire package of cookies and know it won't get back to anyone else. Who has seen you at your worst and still loves you? Aren't they worth a little extra effort?
If you won't be making the trip to Paris In A Cup this weekend for Tea, we will miss you, but save the date for our Spring Tea on Saturday, April 3rd. Guests are encouraged to show off there best Spring Hat. Start fashioning yours today because there will be prizes!
