Happy May Day

In a family tradition started by my kindergarden teacher, we greet every May first with strawberries, preferably in the form of strawberry shortcake for breakfast. I don't know where she got the idea; if it was something her family did or if she just wanted an excuse to eat shortcake at 7am. Regardless, it's a fun tradition. I love knowing that out there somewhere, my sister is eating it too.

I paired it with some Earl Grey Lavender tea, out of my French cup that she found for me in her travels. I love this cup, and keep it out on display, save when I take it down to use for special occasions.

How cute are you? I definitely shared in that breakfast...although lavender earl grey tea in that adorable cherry cup would have made it even better. Glad I found you something so cute in Paris! ;) Love you!
