My sister and I have a tradition. When I visit, I make sure I get a flight that delivers me around noon. She picks me up and we head over to Nordstrom's at the Florida Mall. Shopping is not on our mind. Eating is! We head straight for the cafe, paying no attention to the stylish clothing and accessories along the way. After a bowl of their sinfully delicious crab bisque, we share...
...a light dessert.
(There were two forks involved!)
I peeled off layers of clothing and we sat by the pool
waiting for our other sisters to arrive.
The snow that was falling when I left Chicago was fast forgotten.
"Floridians put salt on margaritas, not sidewalks",
my sister texted me on one of our snowiest winter days
back home. I think I prefer it that way myself!!
My brother-in-law is as competent in the kitchen
as he is in the operating room!!
This turned into a delicious dinner
of filet mignon in a wine and mushroom sauce.
We knew there was a surprise for us later that week.
The suspense was rewarded with the best seats in the house for
I think it was the best I've seen.
When you think Cirque can't get better,
The week passed quickly.
The weather improved in the midwest.
It was time to come home.
Now to get busy and check out what's going on in your world!
