A Beautiful Day for a Sisters’ Road Trip

Kathi and I are so blessed to be members of a sisterhood of six amazing women!!  That’s right, six sisters, and no brothers!  Four of the sisters, Kathi, Carla, Nancy, and I, still live in close proximity to our original home on Grange Hall Road.  Pam lives in Arkansas and our baby sister, Angela, lives in Wisconsin.  Our bond with each other has remained extremely strong over the years.  That does not mean that we don’t have differences or disagreements.  In fact, we have been involved in some very heated conversations.  But that strong bond of sisterhood always brings us back full circle to our roots and our love for each other makes that bond invincible!

One of our favorite activities is taking a road trip, whether it is one day or several days.  This past weekend, we traveled to the LaTeaDa Tearoom in Clinton, IL.  What a delightful place.  The tearoom is housed in an old two-story house with the tearoom downstairs and a gift shop upstairs.  The lunch was delicious and the desserts were incredible.Read More »

Weekend Trip!!!

Hello all!!  It is slowly getting warmer here in the Midwest.  Now we are having the April showers that hopefully bring our May flowers.  Pat and I, and our sisters Carla and Nancy, are planning a Sisters day trip this weekend.  We are going to a tearoom for lunch and some shopping.  We love to do these Sister days and we are always on the lookout for a new place to visit.  I plan on taking some picture of our outing, hopefully they turn out good…     Come back soon to see them.

Although the past couple of days have been relatively warm (in the mid-50’s) and spring-like, the skies remain cloudy and a brisk north wind is blowing.  At least the 7+ inches of snow we received last Sunday have melted!  I am determined to think spring and put winter behind me.  I hope you enjoy more pictures of spring decorations and our annual Easter Egg Hunt.
