It was incredible. Friday I had a total “Chick” day! Went out to Perimeter Mall with Beth G for the morning and what ended up afternoon, then dinner with Jill.
Beth and I had a relaxed shopping trip at Perimeter Mall, I enjoyed a few Christmas items for myself and then we spent two hours at the Dekalb Farmer’s Market. I could have spent two days! It was amazing. I’ve never been there before and I walked her up and down every aisle. I didn’t even make it into the wine, fresh fish or pastry to sections. I’m saving those for the next time. I positively drooled as I walked past the Chilean wine selections. I was all eyes and mouth wide open taking in every amazing ingredient in the spice aisle and produce. I kept saying to people “this is my first time here, I can’t believe it “as they looked at me, it’s my first time and they smiled.
I saw items I only thought I’d see on the Food Network and the breads – dont’ get me started. I began to plan such intricate menus! Although I ended up buying very little and settled on enjoying some baked goods and creating a soup of red and yellow lentils.
The people watching was – to use a Begoism – Exquisite! I kept saying I wish I had brought my camera – the colors – oh the floral section and the faces, dress we passed- wonderful!
And I moved into a delightful evening. Dinner was a lovely time with another friend, Jill. We caught up and shared and laughed, oh my, but it felt good to laugh. We ended our meal with Patron XO dessert martinis- yum.
In reflection, the day felt very elegant, very feminine, very Audrey Hepburn.
