One Charmed Day

Our daughter came home for winter break for essentially one day. She arrived Sunday evening and left first thing this morning. Yesterday she and I punched through a joint to do list (items to order, summer abroad bills to pay, resume to update), chatting and laughing as we did. Our son was at work till late, but the rest of the family went to dinner at Red Lobster (don't judge; those cheddar biscuits are to die for) and enjoyed being together. Our girl is back at school now, having caught the bus in the midst of another New York City snowstorm. Glad she's back safe and sound. Of course, I miss her.

  1. A too-short time, but an absolutely lovely one. That picture of you two is so warm and charmed indeed.

  2. I love Red Lobster but alas, we don't have one here where we live. Maybe that is a good thing because I would be eating there way too much.

    It is nice to have the chickadees in the nest. My son is getting to leave home and I just think on it and I start sobbing. I can still feel him in my arms for the first time. How can he be reacy to leave the nest?

  3. I haven't eaten at Red Lobster in years but I do remember that I loved it!
    How sweet that short visit must have been! To sleep knowing that all the chicks are in the nest again.

  6. This just made me very happy. You are all so loving and beautiful, inside and out. Also and I've said it before but you look great! What ever you're doing, it's working. And Red Lobster is amazing. In the worst way possible. I also love it.

  11. Lovely photos of beautiful people. Please tell this UK visitor to your blog ...what is " Red Lobster" ? I get the impression they sell great tasting food…but not necessarily healthy food !!
