Day 239: Pinkies Up!


Our tea party was a shoulder and hip shaking success. From the Bollywood Flashmob to the yoga demo to the saffron and cardamom macarons, we somehow pulled off another amazing event.  Of course, it was not without A LOT of help from our friends – which is the perfect foundation to build anything. This was born from love and will grow out of of the love of the hearts of those who want to nurture it.

My partner Jennifer and I joke that we began this journey together with only two hands between the both of us because we have been carrying a baby on our hip with the other one (Jenn has a daughter only three months younger than #sirellisroy). To see our vision come to fruition at these events is a gift to these two new mothers who desire to carve our own corner of color in the world.

While the Les Elephants High Society of Do-Gooders and Tea Drinkers is a secret society until you can attend of the tea parties – our manifesto needs to be shared with the world as it continues to inspire me to be ruthlessly passionate about being my own person and following my heart – laughing all the way.
