Serendipity Sundays ~ Meeting Up with Special Friends

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

It was so fun to catch up visiting with my brother and sister in law, Frankie and Nannette Saturday morning for breakfast at La Madeline's Bakery at the Arboretum.

It was a delightful morning sitting on the patio and we were so glad La Madeline Bakery was open! Face masks going in and ordering and removing them at the table. Practicing social distancing of course. It was so nice to dine out again! We could have eaten inside but with the weather so pleasant we chose the patio dining. We visited for 3 hours and I could have stayed all day catching up! Frankie is Geno's brother and these two were our traveling buddies. We are thrilled for all the years we traveled and explored the world together because that wouldn't be on our agenda now.

So nice, Dorie, to have that chance to enjoy a breakfast together and to catch up... I'm sure Frankie is missing Geno a great deal, as well.

Dorie sounds like a special time.  Good thing they let you take the mask off, it would have been challenging to eat with it on ...... LOL

glad you got to see them and enjoy a visit.  I've missed so many friends during this pandemic and don't know when I'll see them again.  Some are NOT going out period and I'm certainly not visiting them at home.
