Why am I embarrassed to announce I have four dates this weekend? It makes me feel borderline shameful, like I’m Cupid’s harlot, trying to maximize efficiency. Don’t judge. I look forward to lunch today with J and a post-work rendezvous with A. Tomorrow there is dinner with C. Sunday Downtown Dining Week kicks off with dinner with D. Whew. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Enough about dating.
I want to take a moment to give thanks to all the veterans for their service to our country. No veteran should ever have to go hungry. Click here to help give them meals. Happy Veterans Day to all those who served. Thank you. Your sacrifice is greatly appreciated and never forgotten. Happy Veteran’s Day.
To honor the vet in our immediate family, my dad, we celebrated with a family outing. We took the kids to Mellow Mushroom for a pizza lunch. Watching Adam cut his little sister’s pizza with a knife warmed my heart. Tatum barely touched her food because she was too excited to ‘go bouncy.’ Bouncing aplenty occurred at Kids Play, which is conveniently located next door to the restaurant. I never forget for a second how grateful I am to have my family reunited and living in Tennessee.
Sarah and I have a new spot: Rafa’s! The food is delicious and reminds me of something I would have eaten in California. My stint out west spoiled me in terms of Mexican cuisine. Now that I’ve found something affordable, yummy, and authentic; it just might become my pre-work dinner destination. I’ll be meeting Sarah there frequently as I help her plan her upcoming wedding and give my two cents on her house hunting. Now that she’s doing all these grown up things I’m living vicariously through her. 😉
November 12 was an eventful day. Two dear friends of mine in two different states gave birth to their first child. Missy welcomed a daughter, Lila, here in Memphis. In Texas Lorissa’s son, Stephen, arrived. Pictures coming soon.
Lorissa has been a friend of mine since middle school. We met as campers at Camp Ozark and have been in each other’s lives ever since. Camp friends truly are friends for life.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
