Bloom Where You Are Planted

Good afternoon my dears, how have you been?


Yesterday, it was in the 70's with Carolina blue skies, birds chirping, a gentle sway of wind, and sunshine - glorious sunshine. I met my hubby for a lunch date at one of our favorites, Bravo, which serves up food with an Italian flare.

Oh. My. Goodness.

I ordered a dish, akin to a Mediterranean meal with rice pilaf, vegetables, and grilled shrimp and it was delicious, not just the first bite, but all the bites. So I'll definitely be ordering that again.

I came home and took care of my routine in our home and garden, then sat on the front steps, and took in as much of the spring-like day as I could. I pulled out my camera, and started snapping pictures of all the flowers that were blooming - a flower journal of sorts.

Then I found out that we're expecting snow this weekend. Which is random, considering we've only had one snow day this year, so I'm praying that my flowers will make it through.

Last weekend we were mostly outdoors, in the garden, bagging straw, reseeding, planting flowers, and getting our pool clean and ready for spring and summer. It takes us a few weeks, from taking of the cover off, to chlorinating, pumping, removing leaves and vacuuming, which is arduous for some, but for us it gets us active outside - enjoying the sunshine.

We also went to go see the movie Before I Fall, based on the book by Lauren Oliver. The main character, Samantha Kingston, is played by Lea Thompson's daughter, Zoey Deutch. She and her friends get into a car accident, yet everyday she wakes up and relives her last day, like purgatory. 

I think the movies lesson was that we all have an impact on those around us, so be a role model, and encourager.

Last but not least, we had Sunday brunch at The Gallery. My mini waffles served with warm syrup, whipped cream and fresh berries was delicious. And my hubby said his eggs benedict was delicious too before venturing for ideas at the Southern Spring Home and Garden Show.




That's all for now.

From our home to yours, have a blessed weekend.

Oh my, your flowers are beautiful.
I hope all turns out alright with the weather.

How would you rate the movie?
Did you see the movie The Shack? I read the book The Shack several years ago. I am thinking of seeing the movie. Please give me your review if you saw it.

Flowers and food are two of my favorite things and you have captured them beautifully!

Also, thank you so very much for your warm and heartfelt comments.

I wanted to let you know that I am nearing the end of my college experience and am currently doing a 7-week internship at a museum as a requirement for graduation. It is an interesting experience to be sure.

I must admit that I am struggling to try and manage my time and make sure my family's needs are met. Sadly, this leaves little time left for visiting my favorite people in the world and their fabulous blogs. I hope you'll have patience with me. Thankfully, this time won't last forever and I will soon, once again, be able to see all the wonderful things you are doing.

May glorious weather and lovely flowers put a spring in your step,
Laura
