Mother's Day 2019

My husband and I went to spend the weekend with our daughter and family in Mt. Pleasant (just across the Ravenel Bridge from Charleston, SC.) Our granddaughter was there also (she lives in Charlotte), so we all traveled several hours, but it was such a wonderful weekend. On Saturday night we all went to Grace and Grit Restaurant (I wrote about this already) and it was yummy. First time I ever had peaches and cream grits! I actually prefer my grits plain with salt and pepper. Sunday, our granddaughter took her mom and myself to brunch at Stars, a lovely restaurant in downtown Charleston. The food was soooo good. The raspberry macaroons were the best I've ever had. The photo is the three of us on the roof top of Stars where people can gather for drinks and enjoy the sunset. Afterwards, we shopped along King Street which had been closed off to traffic. There were food vendors, local crafts, and several musical acts. Several of the little clothing shops had Mimosas for the customers. (In case you're not familiar with it, Mimosas are orange juice with champagne.) I had never had one before because I don't like champagne, but they were refreshing on a warm afternoon. We left to come back home Monday morning. On the way, we toured Brookgreen Gardens which was amazing. It's a 300 acre wildlife refuge and sculpture garden with so many plants and flowers. To me, the most beautiful parts are the centuries' old Oak trees with hanging Spanish moss. We even came across an alligator by one of the ponds. At first I thought he might be another sculpture, but thankfully he moved a little before we got too close. Not that I was taking any chances. My husband took a photo of me with the gator in the background and I have the funniest scared look on my face! It was a wonderful Mother's Day and I never take it for granted. My love and prayers are for all myLotters who no longer have a mom (or never had a good one) and all the moms who have lost a child. It can be a very sad and bittersweet day.

Great picture and it sounds like a lovely time. Our niece lives in MT Pleasant but we have yet to visit there. I do love Charleston.

Mt Pleasant is one of the fastest growing cities in the country, although the residents would rather people didn't move there. It's a very cool place.

With everyone grown (almost), it's really special when we can get together. How was your day?

That's very comfortable house you were at. Mother's Day is never forgotten by all women, I would think.

I hope this is one of your jokes, Joe. I miss my grandmother, my mother not so much.
