This was our 13th year of gathering for girls weekend over Memorial Day. We went back to where it all began - North Carolina. Laura and Emily graciously hosted Andrea, Brooke, Mary (Kai) and me.
I arrived first and after a few errands heard over to Laura's to wait for Andrea and Brooke's delayed flight. Once they made it we enjoyed a delicious candlelit dinner al fresco.
Dinner was back in Charlotte at the Peculiar Rabbit for a yummy rooftop meal and we were joined by Mary and her foster child Kai. We were treated to a full rainbow and a gorgeous sunset.
On Sunday we had a lazy morning followed by a walk through the gorgeous Queen City homes. Lunch was a perfect collection of delicious odds and ends. Frank and DIA came over for happy hour margs and guacamole around the fire pit. Dinner was phenomenal. Roasted veggies and Dijon salmon. The girls threw me a surprise baby shower and facetimed Marge and Em to join in the fun. There was a lot of technology and a lot of love flying around.
No girls trip is complete without the bowl game. This year we photographed our entries - popular items were the girls who were not in attendance, Kim, Kevin Cox, and God.
Monday we picked up and packed up. Sad for another year in the books but so very grateful. Can't wait for next year lakeside (TN or WI!)
