(Today's song: Cup of Tea by Kacey Musgraves- Each blog post this month is inspired or anchored by a song. I'm curating a playlist I will share at the end of the month!)
Yes, that is the Queen Mum over my right shoulder, but no, she wasn't really there at Robinson's Tea Room. Who WAS there was me, my mom, my sister, and my daughter, Megan. Megan turns 9 on Tuesday and this year, circumstances dictated a change to our usual birthday party routines. I wanted to plan something that Megan would enjoy- that would feel special and out of the ordinary. I enlisted my mom and my sister, Christine, to come with us to Robinson's Tea Room.
It is the cutest place. You pick from a menu of many different types of teas (I had vanilla cupcake to start and then coconut cocoa as my second pot). You get a three tier tray with scones, tea sandwiches, and various pastries. Robinson's Tea Room is about 45 minutes away so we had lot of fun conversation on the way there and back. Lots of laughs and stories shared.
In my quest to find a good "tea song" for today's post, I found Kacey Musgraves song "Cup of Tea". The theme of the song is you aren't going to be everyone's cup of tea and that kind of mirrors the conversation we had on the way home about not killing yourself for a certain title or status level to impress others. My sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in July. She is cancer free and doing great but it has changed her perspective on what really matters. The song is definitely one that will help me remember this special family day and that making time for what matters most is really important.
