So here goes.
As I may have mentioned before, a great perk to living here is the proximity of my in-laws. Yes, that's what I said: my IN-LAWS. They are wonderful, helpful, fun and great to be around. It has been a huge blessing to be able to see them almost every day, for them to come to the children's school events, and to have a some support with transportation and child care when we need it.
Also, we are now significantly closer to my parents, who live in Tucson. Two weeks ago, my dear mom and dad drove a Budget rental truck the 808 miles from Tucson to Kerrville to visit, and also to deliver some long-awaited furniture to our new home. More on said furniture later.
I loved having my mom and my mother-in-law in the same place at the same time! Especially fun was exploring places in the Texas Hill Country with two of my most favorite ladies.
My mom and I visited Old Ingram Loop, which is a small shopping and arts area just west of Kerrville. It was Ladies' Night, so all the shops were open late, serving snacks and beverages. We had a ball.
A few days later, Mom and I met up with my mother-in-law in Fredericksburg and ate lunch at a really neat little spot with a great gift shop. It was a few days before Halloween, so we had to indulge.
|Got a couple of these bad boys for my Halloween decorations.|
Yes, we wore our Halloween finery to lunch, and caused quite a sensation. A woman from another table asked if she could take our picture. Hee hee!
The Herb Farm has beautiful grounds, which we all enjoyed on a lovely fall day. Thankful to be with my two mothers, and for all they mean to me in my life.
|Okay, Texas. Calm down.|
|That's my cute madre.|
|Really, French people?! Love is NOTHING without bread and wine?!|
