This week, we had our regular weekly playdate – even got to try out homemade Turkish delight! Can I just say that, as delicious as it is, C.S. Lewis had me thinking it was some kind of amazingly addictive candy? I would imagine it to be something along the lines of a french macaron. Instead, it’s more like the inside of a jelly bean. I even have a weakness for jelly beans, but I can’t imagine betraying my siblings for them. Macarons, on the other hand…
Wednesday, I came down with a cold, and ended up canceling everything for a day – mostly fun things, adding insult to injury. I recovered, though, and feel 95% back to normal – time to reschedule those fun things!
The rest of the week, we worked on our business, Wildeflours Denim & Vintage Finds, sourcing, listing, shipping, etc.
We took some time this weekend to hang out with our friends, Stephen and Tiffany, and their kids. It’s rare to find friends that everyone in the family loves, but we have that with their family. Everything I could say about them is cheesy, but they have literally been a gift from the Lord and we love them very much. Anyway, David got to show off his sushi and hibachi skills, and “a good time was had by all.”
Sunday, I was privileged to host a baby shower with several other amazing ladies (really, truly they are all rock stars at pulling together a party – and I want them to plan all my parties from now on). My dear friend (of the weekly playdate fame), Kristal, is having a baby girl – adding to her three precious boys – and needed some girly things, as well as some baby gear reinforcements. I can’t resist sharing one photo my friend Wendi captured before it all got started – can you tell how much fun we had decorating??? And it was especially precious to do this for someone like Kristal. She’s truly the most encouraging, thoughtful friend you could ask for. If I come down with a cold and she knows about it, there will be soup on my doorstep kind of friend. Such a treasure. So it was really nice to be able to turn some of that back to blessing her and her family. It’s hard to believe we have only know each other a little over a year because she has become so very dear so quickly, but it has been just what was needed. Apparently, many other ladies feel similarly, so we had a great time piling on the gifts and loving on Kristal.
That was our week. How about you? Ever try Turkish Delight? Come down with a killer cold this week? Throw a party for a wonderful person? I’d love to hear about it!
