I know, I know. Some of you are probably rolling your eyes and could care less about the Royal Wedding, but I am a romantic at heart. Doesn’t every little girl dream of being a princess (or a rock star?) I did. Thirty years ago I remember getting up very early so not to miss a minute of Princess Di’s wedding. On Friday I will wake my little Princess Daelyn at 4 or 5 am to see Kate and William’s Wedding. I have already enjoyed explaining the British Royalty to my three children and they seem fascinated by it all. Since I enjoy a little bling in my life, I created this drink to look like Lady Di’s/Kate’s engagement ring. So while little Dae and I curl up on the couch to watch the Wedding of the Century we will sip these bubbly drinks- the grape juice version, eat some tea sandwiches, along with scones with cream and jam. And don’t forget the tea! We will be downing plenty of tea. Pinkies out. Clink.
