It’s been an awesome Valentine’s weekend here in Florida. I mean – how lucky can one girl get!
On Friday evening my handsome son Blake took me out to dinner – just the two of us! We had some absolutely delicious fried shrimp at the Turtle Shack and talked about this being the first Valentine’s Day we’d spent together in almost 20 years. Needless to say, this mom was a very happy lady!
On Saturday my handsome husband surprised me with candy and roses in the morning and took me out to dinner that evening! We ate at the Funky Pelican (Shrimp & Grits for me) – totally yummy!
After the flowers and candy on Saturday – but before the dinner – I spent a couple of hours in a volunteer orientation session at Flager Humane Society.
COLD, COLD, COLD, COLD. . . . . on Mackinac
Mackinac Island is getting a giant dose of VERY cold weather. It’s -2 degrees, with a wind chill of -15 as I write this at 5:30 p.m.- but earlier today the windchill was -31!
MY BIG MACKINAC NEWS!
It’s official! Ted and I will be on Mackinac Island June 7-11, and I’m so excited I’m about to split! Stefanie Congdon, the General Manager for the Inn at Stonecliffe, has invited me up to do some free lance writing for them!
Ted and I have never stayed at Stonecliffe, although we’ve eaten there several times in their incredible restaurant. I can’t wait to write about the mansion AND the Summer House Suites. And how lucky is this! We’ll be there in the middle of Lilac Festival, so I’ll also be able to share all the festivities and beautiful flowers that week. I’m pinching myself!
Much more to come on this – including how Bree’s Mackinac Island Blog was a contributing factor to Stefanie coming to live and work on Mackinac Island! I’ll open the Mackinac Island Blog back up for these stories and for everything else going on while we’re there, so stay tuned. EXCITED!
Y’all have a great week, and I’ll see you back here in a few days!
