I drove Mother and Mr. HB to my sister's home, we brought a bottle of wine, some flowers and a roasted veggie dish.
Mother made the pumpkin pies as she is well known for her fabulous pastry.
Family and friends gathered together to share a meal and give thanks.
One of my LBD's made an appearance
as did those hardy Stuart Weitzman shoes.
(If they were red I'd be saying "there's no place like home")
These shoes say "party" to me
perhaps because they are patent leather or maybe because they have bows on the toes.
I wore stockings for the first time this season.
Messy up do
Faux Fuchsia does such a neat bun but I am all thumbs...
sparkles just because...
a little bling looks good in candlelight
I wore eyeliner and shadow in a slightly darker shade
Chanel lip gloss
and a quick spritz of Hermes scent.
I gave myself a manicure and slicked on a clear glossy glaze
to disguise my gardener's paws.
After dinner in the kitchen my hands submerged in soapy water
I wondered if the polish would peel
I should not have worried
trusty OPI is a warrior among nail varnish.
Today all was back to business
a walk on the seafront with my BFF
and the start of a new week...
We had an extra special invite to have dinner
with our lovely grand daughter Isla
and her very clever parents
lovely daughter joined in too...
Time spent with family humbles me beyond measure.
I am in awe
soak in so many blessings that I feel I might burst.
"As we express our gratitude,
we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
but to live by them."
- John F. Kennedy
Hope that your week is off to a good start.
