What I Miss Most In Quarantine

What are YOU waiting (and wishing) to do again?

In this season of social distancing and carry-out, I’ve found myself longing for a nice dinner out socializing with friends, and although patience is by far not my strongest virtue, I keep reminding myself that good things come to those who wait.

So when frustration & feelings of isolation set in, remember: This season won’t last forever! This too shall pass...

And when it comes, I'm sure it will be better than we could have imagined because we will appreciate it so much more!

What's first on your list to do when society opens back up again?

Stop Saying No!

I was inspired to share something I learned over the weekend. 

First let me give you a little context...

My husband & I went to Arkansas for 5 days on a trip that my husband and I have been asked to go on for 10 years.  We were visiting my husband’s best friend (and locker partner) from 8th grade where he's made his home since graduating from law school back in the 80s.

It happened at a VERY UPSCALE restaurant in Charleston, SC where my daughter & her husband live. Number 1, they NEVER go out to dinner. Number 2, when they do, it's never upscale. (They have 3 kids.) But it was my son-in-law's 40th birthday and it was worth a big celebration.
 
Here's how it went down...
 
They...
