Lillian and Camilla April 2020 Date Day

Fries and dessert at Team TLC Casa with our lovely sky view (bonus watching the massive amount of ongoing construction as they finish the clubhouse and pool along with the remaining buildings).

Fries from Burger Me for Lillian with a snickerdoodle cookie from Great Full Gardens. Peanut butter chocolate chip cookie for me.

We may continue the date after dinner. We shall see what Ms. Queen for the Day wants.

Part 2: An after dinner drive around South Reno.

Lillian and Camilla February 2020 Date Day

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.

Lillian and Camilla January 2020 Date Day … (a little late)

First stop was a wonderfully warm walk around the lake.

She and I have had an incredibly rough day. One of the toughest, roughest parenting days I think I’ve had to date. Please send us love and good juju that she eventually understands and accepts the decisions I’ve had to firmly help her make today. She is not happy with me and is deeply sad … xoxo

Second stop was for fries for us to share, with a lovely heart shaped cookie for Lillian, and yummy piece of dark chocolate with pink Himalayan salt for me.

Next was Barnes & Noble so as to use a gift card Lillian got for her graduation. Last was a quick stop for a few more minutes of window shopping.

First stop: Fries and pretty in purple sugar cookie for Lillian. Tahini Broccolini with a Neapolitan cupcake for me. Yum!!

Second stop: Browsing at one of her favorite stores. You should have heard what Bones said to me!!! 😱💀He was just joking, though, and we moved past it.

First stop was to pick up the printed graduation announcements.

Second stop – Fries and a bright and beautiful shortbread cookie for Lillian. Crispy cauliflower with a siracha aioli sauce and a vegan oatmeal coconut raisin cookie for me. The cauliflower was amazing. So incredibly good and perfect amount of spiciness in the sauce. 🧡🧡🧡

Last stop – Craft store for sparkly things to embellish the graduation announcements. Lillian still has Christmas money so she picked out a shiny pencil case she’s had her eye on to use for traveling with her colored pencils.
