Mother's and Daughters



I had a wonderful Mother's Day Weekend. Jen and Kristine came for a visit and Papa watched the kids Saturday while us girls went to the Women's show (donated $4 each..sort of a waste) But then we did what I really wanted to do which was the Wine walk on the Avenue. I Love shopping and exploring the downtown stores. Found a new store (Can't remember the name)that is Amazing and will give the Gilded Lilly a run for their Money. We sampled a few wines, nibbled on cheeses and crackers, enjoyed free samples of chocholates, candies and then a coffee tasting at Cafe Mela (where I bought the Saddle Rock Blend) We had a great time together and went for Pedicures after all the walking and finished our day with dinner at Smoke Blossom. Sunday was a beautiful morning at church and then Brunch at Chateau Faire Le Pont Winery. They have new Chef and I must say that I was quite impressed...as were Curtis and Kara. We all fell into a food coma and Jen and I finished off our time together watching Julie and Julia.
I've had a pretty stressful couple of weeks and even bordering on Depression. God knew what I needed and sent Two of my girls to come hang with me. Melissa called and sent some Love over the Cell phone and knowing that I will see her in a few weeks helped heal the hole in my heart that misses her. 16 Days until I introduce the Mouse to my 3 daughters, 2 son in laws, 5 grandkids and 1 son in law to be (We think) It's going to be a memorable time. I am Blessed beyond measure.

The store is called Etcetera. I checked it our yesterday and fell in love with it. Did you see that black and white animal print chair? I NEED that for my room.

Glad you had a good time. Hope they cheered you up for a long while. I laughed about the $4 donation. I went several years ago and wasn't impressed. Haven't been back since. Now, if I'd known you were going on the wine walk, I may have found a way to join you. :)
