Thank goodness for our medical system and our wonderful family doctor.
Her energy is not quite back where she feels like driving so either my sister or I chauffeur her around town.
Today we had a wonderful call from her saying she'd love to go out for lunch and do some shopping.
We are understanding and devoted daughters, and so jumped at the chance to enjoy some girl time.
Sis drove her vintage BMW convertible...
I must confess that I am the only one in my entire family that does not drive a Beamer...
our son and his wife each have their own...maybe it's time I trade in my old Volvo!
We had a delicious "ladies who lunch" spinach salad and a pot of Earl Grey tea at Adrienne's Tea Garden.
Totally refreshed, we hit the shops.
Sunday's Snowflakes was having a sale and my sister bought 3 things, all tops.
I bought a black BOHO vibe skirt.
Then Mother and I got our pearl fix on with locally designed sterling and freshwater baroque pearl earrings.
I picked up the dress from the tailor's, the one I am wearing to the wedding.
Remember I bought 2 because they were 50% off.
Dress for the garden wedding.
Slimming V neck with ample coverage for the "girls"
contoured for my hourglass figure
fully lined and it's jersey fabric skims the body beautifully
in a cool tropical print
feels very feminine
I forget that I need to pay more on occasion for a great fit that flatters.
Casual dress for daytime
navy and white
slimming forgiving and so easy to put on.
I've worn this with my jean jacket.
classic navy and white
so crisp for summer
long twisted silver drops with vast baroque pearls at the bottom
from the Gallery at Mattick's
funky BOHO skirt
can be worn with capri tights, boots or sandals
a fun piece of clothing to wear.
behold the magnificence of The Humble Bungalow Garden limelight hydrangeas
these are thriving and fill in a large space
they just sing happy to me
Lovely limelight hydrangeas and Lady's Mantle
and beautiful marriage of green.
It's a sunny morning
I'm feeling there's a lightness of spirit
filtering through the windows
and it's making me smile with gratitude.
Wishing you a wonderful day.
