I received this beautiful ATC from another Mother's Day Swap participant. It is from Sherry Campbell of My Mother's Daughter.
Look how beautiful it looks and the lovely work she did. Thanks Sherry, I love it!

Saturday we went to Charleston, a neighboring community on the bay for dinner at Portside Resturant and Lounge.

We got a table by the window so we could see the water.

This old boat was part of the decor outside the resturant.

Sunday we went to breakfast and as we were looking for a place to park ....wait what do I see in the window? Is it? Let me get closer.....

It is! Right there in the window of a novelty store was a huge picture of Audrey Hepburn. The same image used for an award by Jeannene from Love Conqures All !

I could hardly believe my eyes but there she was! How funny! Guess you were thinking of me huh Jeannene?

I got calls from all of three of my sons and a wonderful card from my oldest son David. Also a really touching email from my granddaughter Melissa. I also had many comments about the tribute to My Mother and I thank you all. You all made the loneliness not so bad.

That was my weekend. What did you all do this weekend? Tell us about your Mother's day.

Well, that is just toooooo FUNNY!! bet I was thinking of you dear Patti. I can't get over that sign in the WINDOW, if you don't mind I will copy this picture too/or you can send it to me please!! (How very ironic.) "GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE UH?"

*I am so glad you had a lovely Mother's day hearing from everyone. You are blessed!!

Many hugs,

Hi Patti! I'm glad your weekend was nice and that you heard from your sons. I talked to my mother on Saturday. The conversations are not long as my mother has a hard time talking due to health problems. But you know, it seems we get quite a bit said in a few words, the most important things anyway. I also talked to my daughter on Saturday. Sunday she and her family were going to the zoo in Seattle? I think. It also happens to be my son-in-law's birthday! On Sunday I had the house to myself. You might think that's not much of a Mother's Day, but this year it was nice. My husband and son went fishing and when then came home, we had a very nice dinner. I went to a nursery and shopped for plants, had popcorn for lunch, and watched some corny movies. It was a very relaxing day. Now if the rain would stop long enough to plant my garden, I will be thrilled!

Patti, I'm glad you and hubby got out and enjoyed Mother's Day! A beautiful place to have dinner :)

David had to work 12 hours and then we went for a drive so I could show him where my BF moved. I had helped her some on Saturday. We are going out to dinner one night this week when he's not working and take a few friends.

He gave me a beautiful card and I got lots of hugs! Good day!

Sounds like you have a lovely Mother's Day. My daughters took me out to lunch and then my oldest daughter and I drove to Vermont to wish my mom Happy Mother's Day. My youngest daughter drives now and she was so proud when she walked up the path with a huge hanging plant. Karen

I am glad you had a good Mother's Day Patti. The restaurant looks like it would be fun to go to.
