My A Taste of Paris Launch party was a success!
I was thrilled with the unbelievable turn out. So many friends, past students and trip participants were here to help me celebrate! I felt surrounded by love and support. I hope you will take some time to peruse the A Taste of Paris website, I am so proud of it! Join me in May for Girls Night Out to learn to make this tasty cocktail.
The French Presse cocktails were a hit! My husband could not pour them fast enough!
