I am blessed. I have a wonderful group of Women in my Family who sustain, nourish, entertain, and love me. We had a wonderful, all too quick, night away to Portsmouth, New Hampshire this weekend. I have been driving through this small city on the ocean for years, but have never stopped in. It’s actually quite nice, and I will go back to explore again.We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn right in the center of Strawberry Banke. Arriving at different times during the afternoon, we all happily valeted our cars as we were able to walk everywhere. Everyone walked over to, at various times, Popovers, a very cute, great bistro where we had a light repast before our planned dinner later in the evening. Then we all meandered the streets popping in and out of the great little shops and boutiques.
At 5:30, we descended on the Auntie’s suite for
cocktail hour, or two. It was so
wonderful to sit, be, and laugh with these Ladies, three generations of
them. Finally at 7:30 we walked over to a
wonderful small restaurant, Rudi’s. for an amazing dinner. The Auntie’s don’t eat much. My Mom says that she has almost no appetite
anymore. The lesson I learned there is
that I must continue to enjoy my dining experiences now, while I still can!
