Over the weekend we drove 4 hours to spend Mother’s day with my Mom and Maternal Grandparents!!! It was a quick trip, mostly spent eating, laughing, eating and occasionally taking a tour of my grandmother’s pretty garden. Oh, and my Mom has decided to do a black and white photo wall in her house, so we thumbed through hundreds of old photos trying to pick the best ones, looking through those had us in stitches!
Here are some things about Grandmother, she serves her famous (generations old recipe) barbecue sauce in a Mason jar. It’s so country chic don’t you think?
Grandmother is really practical, and prefers plants to flowers, then she can plant them in her yard and watch them grow season after season. Miss Mendi, my mom, brought her this gorgeous huge hydrangea, it was lovely! That will surely be transplanted later this summer!
My grandfather is so current, he wears cools sneakers that he calls his, “Willie Nelsons”. He even let Tim borrow some when Tim only had flip flops. We couldn’t go down to the club house and listen to a Cajun band in flip flops!!
On the walk home we passed another beautiful home. I used to think outdoor drapes were kinda stupid. But this house, back porch, and yard changed my mind! I have a new appreciation for outdoor draperies!
