Mother Daughter Day

I love Mother Daughter days.  Just because my nest will be empty...doesn't mean we won't continue with this tradition.  If Anna ends up in Milwaukee or Justine in places North of here...we will just have to road trip it.  For now, at least another year or so, we will enjoy each other's company here.

This is how our day went.  Friday is our Weight Watcher's day.  I take care of my Mom every Friday during the school year from 7 - 8:30 (ish) am.  Then we go to our class...



Our class is at 9 am.  We don't eat breakfast before we weigh in.  We stop and eat before we go grocery shopping for my Mom.  Today, however, we flipped that so we could go to lunch at Johanna May's Tea House.  This place is so cute!  Very good tea.  It is so popular you need to make a reservation.  The food is delicious.

Then we did a ceramics project at The Clay House.




This cute studio/shop has been open for about 9 months.  It is owned by Gretchen Kluz.  I went to high school with her and her sister.  My girls went to grade school with her daughters.  She is a graphic artist had had a successful business with that.  Her Mom passed on from cancer and decided that life was too short not to do what you LOVE to do.  My philosophy too.  I was blown away by her art, painted walls and cute shop.  We were on the PTA together and did our little grade school's year book - but, I had NO idea how artistically talented she was.  Her original paintings and designs are super nice!  I didn't know they had gourmet, hand made food and candies.  Next time, we will order a tomato, basil pizza.  Here is a link to her page:  http://clayhouseonline.com/









We had a great day together, an investment in our relationship and memories that are priceless.  

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

What a great mother/daughter day! You have lots of interesting little places around you. I guess I need to find some like this in my area.
