We have been out gallivanting again for the last week and a half, this time out to San Antonio, TX, and then back home again via Baton Rouge and Fairhope (my home away from home).
I will bore the crap out of you pretty soon with some more photos of a pile of fancy stuff I didn't buy, but in the meantime, I did want to tell you about a pleasant little event I was invited to by Jenna at The Painted Apron, one of my favorite bloggers. Kim at Cozinest has organized a group who all blog down in LA (Lower Alabama), and Jenna is a member because like Kim, she lives in both Bham and the Gulf Coast area.

We had the meeting at the Page and Palette's upstairs room over their coffee house which is called Latte Da. Cute, n'est-ce pas? You must try the Almond Joy latte. For those who don't know, Page and Palette is a very well-known independent bookseller, just like The Booksmith here in Birmingham. They sponsor lots of book signings and literary events.
I reconnected with my favorite beautiful, witty redhead LeslieAnne from Fairhope Supply Co., and I met Linda from Coastal Charm.
|I love this house which faces the Bay.|
|This one, too.|
Several bloggers were taking photos, but I forgot my camera (par for the course). I do hope they didn't get me in theirs because I was having a very bad fuzzy hair day. That's what happens when I get up early to be somewhere before noon, and have to work on my hair. I am not a morning person...
Most of us went to lunch afterwards at Gambino's Italian Grill down on the Bay (facing this park area) for a very fattening but tasty buffet where the vegetables were cooked with ham hocks and there was peach cobbler that I was too full even to taste.
Sweet Husband joined us for lunch, the only man, and he introduced himself to the group, "Hello, I am known as Sweet Husband." We all enjoyed getting to know each other, including Emily from The French Hutch who had to get back to Tuscaloosa after lunch.
After a fun interlude, we all went our separate ways, and they graciously invited me to come back for the next meeting. However, I don't know when I will get there again because I hope to be able to get going with my knee surgeries pretty soon. If I could just convince the aforementioned Sweet Husband to move to Fairhope, I would be in like Flynn.
The other bloggers at the meeting were Lorraine from Clamco, Karen from Swim Team Lifestyle, Debbie from Flower Child Designs, and Beth Anne from Eat Beat.
I do hope you have enjoyed my latest visit to my favorite beautiful little town down by the Bay.
