It has been our tradition to take an over night 24 hour Mommy and Me Day every two years beginning when my girls are eight years old. Grace waited a LONG time for her first Mommy and Me Day as she was almost nine when we finally found the time to leave the family and get off by ourselves. Oh yes, there is the obligatory mommy and me selfie.
Grace’s choice for dinner was La Madeline. She chose to dine outside and it was perfect! Our favorite meal at La Madeline is the salad sampler. We always get the strawberries and cream, a soup, and a salad. Yum!
We turned in to our lovely room for some girl talk and a movie. There wasn’t anything great on TV and we both wanted to watch a movie so we purchased one that was still in theaters and watched it from the comfort of our room.
Grace is my shy, quiet middle child. It was amazing to get her off by herself and just watch her come to life. She had so much fun; she never quit smiling. It was a great day, just Grace and me!
