I have always liked this quote by Winnie the Pooh, “It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?”
Here were the short, easy words I heard this weekend. What about cocktails and a show at The Lerner? What about a day antiquing? What about stopping by your friend’s store, Sojourn? Do you want to grab coffee before we head out to Dad’s? Do you want to come over for dinner?
Here is a re-cap of my family and friend filled weekend!
My dear friends, Nancy and John Banks invited me to a performance of The Music Man at the recently renovated Lerner Theatre. A great musical about a con-man from Gary, IN who ends up in River City, Iowa, claiming to want to start a band. I won’t spoil the ending…support local arts and go see this. Liz from B on the River did an amazing job catering the event! I saw so many old friends from growing up at the reception, it totally enhanced the evening! Thank you Nancy and John, I had a great time. Btw, Nanners...I'm celebrating YOU all day today in honor of your birthday!
Saturday, Amy and I took a tour of South West Michigan. Who knew this corner of the state offered so much to do and see? Aside from the sandy dunes I used to frequent growing up, there were tons of antique shops along the bluff and country by-roads to keep us ‘bin digging’ all day! We also went to Stacia’s amazing store, Sojourn and walked away with some awesome new things! (Aim, I’m thinking we need to go back next weekend and scoop up all the stuff we wanted but hesitated on before someone else gets them!) Stacia recommended some cool shops and a delicious lunch spot to break up the day. Best.day.ever!
Sunday was family day and spent the majority of it working in the yard out at my dad’s place. Dinner with my niece, nephew, brother-in-law and sister capped it off.
Have a great week and use some short,easy, simple words and go do something fun with someone!
