Do you see us in the reflection?
The decor is very girlie! The walls are very soft pink and .... well, Parisian! I loved it! It was very comfortable.
This is our cute little table. I absolutely loved how the sun streamed through the windows. I think Rachel did, too, because we both kept exclaiming, "This place is SOOOOO cute!" or..."Oh my GOSH! I JUST love this little shop!"
We each ordered the Chocolate Cherry cupcakes. The cake was perfectly moist and the density was perfect. The icing was delicious. The cherries were reported to have been imported from Italy. It was the perfect blend of yum. And just look at the adorable dishes!
Here is the birthday girl with her giftie from me...I wonder what it could be?
Why! It's MITTENS....handknit, in Rachel's favorite color of blue, of course!
(another first for Rachel).

With sub-zero temperatures freezing our nosehairs together inside our nostrils and warm, woolen mittens merely slowing Jack Frost a bit, we quickly understood the meaning of the words arctic blast. But when the sun came out, I was awed by how a little amber glow could change the way things look.
- made three long roadtrips, alone, (well, with Quincy!)
- three of my five kids started Orthodontic treatment
- got my passport
- travelled to Canada with my long-time friend, Shelly and her parents
- got a new-to-me-car
- got engaged
- finished to flooring in my kitchen
- made several new quilts
- completed knitted bedcovers for my kids
- learned to knit socks
- scored some really cool thrifted items
- officially launched my Etsy site
- enjoyed several holiday events
Of course, these are not my only accomplishments...nor are they necessarily my greatest accomplishments. They are memorable. I look forward to this year and the new twists and turns I may encounter along the way. I know some will be HUGE! And some will be meaningless. I do hope they are memorable and that I learn something from each experience.
Thank you for reading!
