skipping off to play

today I have the gift of a girls day out and I will celebrate the gorgeous day that is shining outside. I see the Bradford Pear making buds and the robins are peeking around. I know it's February....but, today feels like spring.

Today we did things that are only in Birmingham and not Montgomery. Four women who thoroughly enjoy each other's company - laid back and amiable. Shopping in Homewood at our favorite stores, getting to see the look on Nita's face the first time she bit into a baby bite caramel cake (baby bites are these heaven on earth teeny tiny cakes in flavors that your grandmother made - real homemade caramel, red velvet, strawberry)...lunch at PF Changs, more shopping. Oh, a pound of chicken salad that I've never tasted anything else like - from O'Carr's.

Oh yes...it was a good day. And it's 61 outside and I have my windows open. I will sleep the sleep of the happy and content.
