Lillian and Camilla May 2021 Date Day

It was a momentous date day. First time for Lillian to go inside of anyplace in just over a year. She was excited. Clothes shopping for our first stop.

Part 2 through I lost count, as we made so many stops, I’m delirious.

Fries and lemonade at Noble Pie Parlor. Then to pick up dessert. Watermelon macaroon for Lillian, ginger rose dark chocolate for me.

Barnes & Noble, Michaels, and stopping to gaze at the full moon on the way home. (Psst …. I do not like shopping. Drains every inch of energy out of me. I shall crawl into bed, and pass out shortly.)

Part 1: Fries and garlic knots from Noble Pie Parlor – Summit Reno, with a salad made by me. First time having the garlic knots …. Delicious!!!

We already knew we love their fries. I’m so thrilled to have this amazing restaurant so close to us!!! Snickerdoodle cookie for Lillian for dessert, heirloom sea salt chocolate for me.

Part 2: A walk on one of our favorite walking trails. Thomas learned to ride a bike on this trail. Many memories here. They sneak up and grab you when you least expect it. ❤️❤️❤️

We had a part 3 to the Lillian and Camilla February 2021 Date Day.
Reading together … 🥰🥰🥰

Fries and a smiley face sugar cookie for her. Peanut Udon Noodle Salad with a peanut ginger dressing and trail mix cookie for me.

Plus, a lovely walk at Wilbur May Arboretum.

A lovely walk at Wilbur May Arboretum. It’s hard not to take a hundred photos at this beautiful place. Nature held space for us to have some sobering conversations about relationships. Which is why I included the serious face photo. Ha!

Closing with an after sunset walk with more difficult discussions. Nature is the perfect setting for this.

First stop was for fries to share, a butterfly cookie for Lillian, and giant vegan ginger cookie for me.

Second stop was a beautiful walk, with a final stop for a bit of window shopping. xoxo

I deeply appreciate all the love being sent Lillian’s (our) way. It may look like all is well in these photos. Yet, the struggle continues. Tomorrow will be one week out from me ruining her life (as she sees it), one week out from me making a decision in the best interest of her mental and physical safety. Things are definitely better than last Friday. Yet, it’s slow going.

Deeply proud of Thomas throughout this entire ordeal. A younger sibling who stepped into the role of an older sibling this past week. As much as I tried not to have the maddening aspect of this, along with the sadness of this situation leak out of my eyes and heart to him, it happened. And he comforted me. Thank you Thomas. I love you.
