All my darlin' daughter and son-in-law told me was to be dressed to go to lunch and that we would leave at 8:30 am Saturday morning. I had no clue where we were going. And believe me, I tried to find out; but no one would tell me!
I delayed our start time by a half an hour at least, because I needed to get Victoria Leigh's passport out of the safe deposit box… Yes, she was leaving for Italy and the only thing she had asked me to do was get her passport for her…and I forgot. Thankfully, I was able to get it as soon as the bank opened, and we were on our way.
Me and our oldest gift, Audra Elizabeth.
Our first stop was in Lebanon, Tennessee at Watermelon Moon Farms. Audra and Matthew had stayed at the B&B that is there before. I remembered how much she enjoyed staying and had actually guessed that this was where we were going. It was lovely!
An inviting side porch.
They had strawberry punch and appetizers on the front porch.
Audra, her husband, Matthew and his mother.
Are they not the cutest couple ever?!? They planned our outing 3 months ago!!!
Me and Debbie on the front porch.
My place at the table.
The lodger's room.
I love sticks…was so tickled that this was my view to the right of the table.
And this was my lovely view to the left of the front doorway.
They served a strawberry pretzel salad that made me think of my dear mama, because she made the same salad. My dear mama went to live with Jesus in July, 1989.
They sent our vases home with us and mine fit perfectly in my door cup holder!
Then we headed to downtown Franklin for some shopping! I love the architecture and historical buildings in Franklin. It was a pleasant day weather-wise and we enjoyed strolling from store to store.
The light fixtures were so pretty!
I really liked this skirt; but my daughter said ~ no!
More lamp lights and sticks.
Audra sporting her new lace jacket.
I found a really cute handbag.
I think this moss is so pretty.
Vintage dishes that caught my eye.
Matthew and Debbie with pretzel necklaces!
Our youngest sent me a picture of us together. This was the first Mother's Day in 21 years that we have not been together; but I am thrilled that she has the opportunity to study in Italy this month. I miss her. She face-timed us at 5 am this morning - what a treat!
Family picture at church on Sunday, minus Victoria Leigh.
Victoria had left homemade love on my desk. I hung the LOVE banner at my kitchen windows near the sink. I so enjoy homemade gifts.
Between the adventurous outing and the desk full of gifts, I felt totally blessed. I hope you had a Happy Mother's Day too! What did you do to celebrate Mother's Day?
