Sometimes it is necessary to disconnect in order to connect. And, this weekend I did just that. I restrained from checking any of my social media or other online accounts and simply lived in the moment. I visited my children in Kentucky. Only saw my son for a short time, but we all had a lovely dinner to celebrate my birthday which is this upcoming week. Then, it was girl time with my girl for the rest of the weekend.
I stayed Friday night through Sunday morning with my daughter and it is just what the doctor ordered. I know it's not easy on Mr. Reuel to have me gone, but I SO needed this time away. We talked, ate, shopped, had a few drinks, and simply enjoyed seeing each other. It was perfect.
We started our Saturday at a local coffee shop where I was able to have some of the treats that my daughter makes at work. She works for the bakery who supplies Heine Brothers' coffee. My daughter personally makes the rugelach and they are so darn good. Then, it was off to 'Build a Bear' where my daughter bought me my first ever. 'Louise is a starving artist who loves dragons and chai tea.' After we made our bears we spent the rest of the afternoon shopping at various locations. For once I didn't go crazy with the credit card, but I did come home with some new Funkos and other items.

I'm always pretending that I'm sitting across from somebody. I'm telling them a story, and I don't want them to get up until it's finished.
