the first Fall images of French bread and family around 34th street ...

i have been a bit absent from blogging lately.
i still haven't gotten my groove back since my visit from Mr Virus McUgly.
...and sadly, he has been lingering with many of my family and friends.

we have had our share of blessings and sweetness this week despite
the congestion, runny noses and fevers.

i took this photograph last Sunday.
Chrislyn and Jason were ready to go on their anniversary date night.

they decided that they would attend a date night cooking class at Sur la Table.  
the menu included lobster bisque and braised lamb chops. 

baby Bennett is set to arrive in two months.
Chrislyn found her shabby chic tunic on a recent trip to Louisiana.
 she looked so cute!
when Jason greeted us in this black and white check shirt...i said,

"where is my camera? the two of you
are the first picture of  Fall 2012!"  


 speaking of their trip to Louisiana...
i asked them to bring me a Fleur d' lys.

they brought us this for our...
"for here or to go wine, cheese and bread basket".
the plate is footed. it fit into the basket perfectly.
 with it's matching cheese knife, our basket is now complete!

"thank you sweets,  i love you!"


while i'm blogging sweet... i must share some images from our time...

... watching and playing with  precious Holland Grace.  

our week was blessed...


{p.s.  i wish you good health and a happy weekend!}
