Moody, dark floral dresses are really “in” right now. Every time I look at one I love it in pictures but don’t like it on me…I’ve simply never been a floral girl. But, here my niece Georgia pulls off a sweet black floral dress for our dinner date. As I sat in my typical black dress with navy nails I couldn’t help but sit back a bit and smile at the next generation of smart, confident women coming up behind me in the next generation. With her black floral dress and navy nails she clearly discussed being at camp, who she met, what she liked as well as some pretty mature topics and what makes her hesitant about going into 8th grade.
Sakura was perfect and we both had yummy dinners (and finished them!) but I think the best was our stop at Lancaster Cupcake on the way back to the car. Peanut Butter Oreo Cheesecake for her and Toasted Coconut Caramel for me! She played some of the Hamilton soundtrack for us while we sat outside enjoying our treats. Such fun…if you need cupcakes for anything, this is the place to go.
Georgia turns 13 in a few days and I hope we have many, many more dinner dates and chats like this…it’s always good to get a fresh perspective on life.
Fortune cookie of the night…I think this is pretty spot-on.
