I’m California born, a BIG SJ Shark’s fan, married to a my High School sweetheart whom I lovingly refer to here as The Husband and owned by an adorable little Italian Greyhound, Indy.
The love affair with tea started on my 13th Birthday when my Mother decided that I should have a Tea Party.It was a huge affair; all my friends our make-up done at the local Macys and dresses up in our crushed velvet finery (it was the 90s), away we went. The Tea Shop was a cute little place in Downtown Saratoga (which is sadly, no longer there) and while I don’t quite remember what we ate or drank, I do remember having a wonderful time. We wore gloves, drank tea with our pinkies up, and giggled the whole time; it was grand.
When I started Fox And A Parasol in March of 2011 I wanted it to be all about tea parties, cake plates and baking but as I’ve grown so to has the blog. I still bake and now I even dabble in photography, but some days I’ll just go out on a tangent so bear with me. Eventually I’ll circle back around to baking because try and I might it’s like a sirens call to me and I always come back to baking.
That doesn’t mean that I don’t still love to dress up for tea parties and enjoy a good cup of tea every morning because come on, some things never change.
