Bonjour everyone and Happy Bastille Day to all of my French friends and Francophiles everywhere! Even if you are not French or a French-loving person, you can still celebrate this infamous day. Bastille Day is about freedom, liberty, and democracy, beliefs that all people in the US and other free countries hold dear.
In honor of the French national holiday and in honor of freedom and democracy everywhere, I thought I’d start my day off with a little French breakfast.
I had some of my favorite Harney and Sons tea – Paris Tea of course! It has a citrus flavor that is to die for! And, the little sachets that are in each of H&S’s teas are amazing – they truly are not your grandmother’s tea bag and somehow make the tea taste better (although I’m sure that’s all in my head!)
With my tea, I enjoyed a HUGE flaky croissant with raspberry preserves. Just lovely! But I have to admit, I did not eat the whole thing – it was just too filling!
I am also listening to Paris Combo, a fantastic Paris-based cabaret group. My husband and I actually saw them in concert a few years ago. The concert was surprisingly fun and the band didn’t even speak English!
Now, I’m off to get some work done – more writing of course, but this time for my real job.
