We are Debbie and Mica Smith. A Mother and Daughter-in-Law team! The Lemon Lily came together in such an exciting way. After many years of administrative work Mica called Debbie on the phone to vent about that day. Debbie responded with, “Mica, maybe God is telling you to do something else. Use the talents He has given us. “. That is how the seed to The Lemon Lily was planted. God has cleared so many roadblocks to allow this now to come full bloom into the lovely gathering place it is today. Debbie who grew up in West Memphis Arkansas brings with her over 40 years of baking and cake decorating, Not to mention growing up learning firsthand how to make those delicious southern dishes! Mica grew up in a small town in North Florida near the Alabama/Georgia line called Two Egg, FL. She credits her love of canning jams and jellies to her MaMa Skipper. She considers herself extremely blessed to grow up in a family with so many women willing to teach the younger generation those special recipes.
When the conversation began about the possibility to open the tea room, it all made perfect sense. We have been cooking and baking together the last 17 years. Because God has blessed this plan from day one, our main goal is to bring Him glory. We are so excited and thankful for the journey God is taking us on. We can’t wait to have the chance to pass these blessings on to our customers everyday.
