Lillian and Camilla July 2018 Date Day

Lillian and Camilla July 2018 Date Day

First stop: Fries for Lillian and a beautiful purple flower shortbread cookie for Lillian and a vegan oatmeal and date cookie for me. That was one darn good cookie!!

Second stop: Lillian absolutely LOVES decorative throw pillows. So we spent about 30 minutes ooh’ing and aah’ing over the shiny, sparkly, and oh so soft pillows.

Third stop: A special feature of one of Lillian’s most favorite movies: “Barbie and the Diamond Castle” in the lodge theater. We’ve been watching this ever since Lillian was about 5 years old so I’m sure we’ve seen it at least 109 times!

We would have loved to have a walk at one of our favorite places; yet, just too hot!! Perhaps later tonight! xoxo

Ended the date with a sunset walk. Just beautiful!

Thomas and Camilla May 2018 Date Day …..

First, Mexican for lunch with fried ice cream for dessert.

Twelve years of monthly date days. I’m incredibly blessed he still loves these. And, please, I’m not boasting. It’s never too late to start having them.

And, it’s amazing how an aha moment one night can lead one to feel on top of the world the next day.

Thomas and Camilla May 2017 Date Day

May 15 2017:

Thomas and Camilla May 2017 Date Day ….. Thomas bought us ice cream at Icecycle Creamery.

Vegan Passion Fruit Coconut for me. Yum!!! Thomas had one scoop of Dark n Stormy and one scoop Home Means Nevada.

Enjoyed it with a view at Audrey Harris Park. Then went for a walk around the loop. Tough, yet loving conversation followed by lots of laughs while walking.
