Time for Breakfast


When Melissa was home getting ready for her spring break trip to Florida, we managed to fit in some time for breakfast, at our favorite spot.

There is something about going for breakfast with my daughters, that starts the day out in a perfect way. We take the time to talk and catch up, as we drink our coffee together. Mornings in my empty nest are mostly quiet, so going out for breakfast with my daughters is special and something we have always done together. They are busy, but always make time for each other and I love seeing that sisterly bond.

Our favorite breakfast place has great omlettes, but this time, I decided to try a new menu item - whole wheat waffles with dried cherries and almonds. Much healthier, but very delicious all the same. And, they have the best coffee and just keep filling your cup - a sign of a great breakfast spot :-)

Beautiful flowers, yummy food and pretty girls. So glad we took the time for breakfast and more importantly, for each other.

Happy Wednesday!

    That's so special and one of the nicest things a mother and daughter can do!
    You both look so happy.x
    I have to travel to France to see my daughter and it's over 12,000 miles from where I live in New Zealand. I usually stay for 6-8 weeks though to make it worthwhile! Three darling little granddaughters there too!
    Sending you some warm Summer sunbeams from my corner of the world!
