Earlier this month we were thrilled to host my parents and Mary Katherine for my birthday weekend. We started Saturday with brunch at a new-to-us restaurant in Dallas: Ida Claire. Everything was scrumptious, and we can't wait to go back.
Mom and Dad provided some much needed wise counsel during a trip to a nursery for some new plants, and we had a great evening grilling steaks, playing a board game, and eating delicious strawberry birthday cake. Sunday morning was church for all, and we loved having them in Sunday school and the service with us!
The next weekend took us to Jackson for an engagement party, a long overdue reunion with some of my law school friends, and the Jackson St. Patrick's Day parade. We had such a great time in one of my favorite places on earth. We made the drive early Friday morning and got to town just in time for me to meet Deanna and Rebecca for lunch at Beagle Bagel. After lunch I got to meet my friend Sue Ann's precious new baby girl which was such a treat! Friday night we got to catch up with law school friends and celebrate at an engagement party. Then Saturday was the big parade, and despite the cool and windy weather, we had a ball! The visit passed too quickly, as always, and I can't wait for the next one.
So thankful for a March full of family, friends, and celebrations!
