We went to a charming town for my birthday and ate dinner at an Italian restaurant with pictures of Italy adorning the walls. As I was coming out of the bathroom during dinner, you'll never guess what song they were playing......Sherry Baby! I was thrilled! (and no, my kids didn't request it; that's why it was so wonderful). Nel gave me a nice gift card to Macy's. Jess knows I love children's books, so she bought me What a Wonderful World book, illustrated by Tim Hopgood.
The ceremony was so nice. If you've ever heard of the PhD robes, they are very full and heavy with their big floppy hats. I was filled with awe when I saw Nel receiving her degree.
I noticed a red rose in the distance, and had to take a picture of her with it.
Jess made this hilarious sign, and when Nel was walking down the aisle, she saw Jess waving this sign and couldn't help but crack up.
On the way home we stopped at the delicious Pea Soup Andersen's for their famous split pea soup.
Me and Jess browsed through the gift shop, and I bought her a tea cup ornament and some blackberry jam.
On the top of the door was this sign as we were leaving the gift shop.
Thank you for sharing Nel's exciting day with us. You are always with me in spirit.......always.
