artist in studio Toast

Hello, Friends. Did I tell you about our date last Friday? It was a total failure — but it made me laugh. Since it was our first date here, we were hoping for dinner at a charming bistro or something very classic and French. We left the house about 8:00 and headed to the center of our little town, but everything was closed. It was like Christmas day — not a soul anywhere. We explored the streets till we came upon the only two restaurants with any lights on. One was McDonalds. The other is called Buffalo Grill — and it’s American themed. There are menu items like the Arizona Burger and Alabama Burger and there is country music playing. Hah!

I’m sure there are wonderful date spots near by — if not in our town, then in one of the surrounding communities. We’ll just have to keep hunting. : ) If you have any advice for hot dates in the French countryside, we’d to love to hear it. In the meantime, here are a few things I’ve been wanting to share with you.

– I want to be an artist (see above).
– Are you ready to think garden?
– Very helpful, Gwyneth. Thank you.
