Happy Mother's Day! And Winners Announced!

Just wanted to pop in and announce the winners of the Apron Giveaway!

Marie at  A Year from Oak Cottage won the vintage apron and Sharon at Miles to Grow won the yellow and blue apron I made!  Congrats to both and I emailed you to get your addresses.  Dont forget tomorrow is National Apron Day…wear your apron with pride!

My Mother’s Day started off lovely!  Rachel got up at 5am to make cinnamon biscotti for me to have with my morning coffee.  It was so good!  I hear I will be having lots of company in and out today.  I am happy I will get to spend part of the day with all six of my children.

Have a wonderful day and see you soon!

In my next life…

I think I would like to own a chocolate shoppe.  One a lot like this:

This lovely little shoppe was in the village of Valencay where we stayed in France.  Isnt it just adorable???

This is the owner on the right and her helper.

Thank you Hannah and Rachel for helping me out with the French!  They had several conversations with these nice ladies.  I stood there with my mind completely blank.  Nothing I practiced would come to me.

We visited this little shoppe several times during our stay.  It is hard to say what our favorite thing was but the Pain Au Chocolat was pretty near the top. And these lovelies were delicious as well:

That little hazelnut chocolate gateau was especially delish.

My mom, oldest daughter and I catered for about a dozen years…having a little shoppe might not be that far fetched.

Today is National Train Day!

How about that?!

Pretty cool huh? You know I have never been on a train. Nope never. I would love to hop a train and go some place. You know like an overnight kinda trip. Where you get a sleeper car and everything. But actually there are no trains going anywhere from here. Not a one. I think I could drive to New Orleans (that’s not very likely) or over to Texas, take a bus some place else and THEN get on a train. Sounds like an ordeal to me. But I have toyed with the idea of taking a train to Philly to see my friend who lives there. Or to New York City or Vermont. Or anywhere in the North East. I figure as easily as we accomplished the Metro, surely we could hop a train. All the signs would be in English!!
