The Mother of All Celebrations

Around here, we kick back on Mother's Day
and do the actual celebrating one day ahead,
in order to beat the crowds.

Dear, sweet Rob
and the child who makes the whole
Mother's Day thing possible
made reservations at Kincaid's tonight.
Clearly, they love me.
We don't eat there often -- only on special occasions.
The food is somewhat pricey, but oh, is it incredible.

There's the crab dip...
and the teriyaki tenderloin appetizer...
and the creamy Caesar salad...
and amazing fresh fish
(furikake ahi with chili aioli)...
not to mention the delectable filet mignon that Rob had tonight.
Of course, there is nothing quite like sharing an amazing meal
with the ones you love...
to include the sharing
of the best dessert in the world-- creme brulee.
Of course, we observed our usual "coffee dance."
Watching the cream and sugar swirl together
is a total mind trip.
After a game of sugar packet trivia
and an hour or so
of wandering through Borders,
we called it a night.

It was SO worth the 36 hours of labor
to be able to celebrate this way.

Happy Mother's Day!


  1. Oh, yum, sounds like fun! And somehow just seeing those sugar packets makes me so homesick for Hawaii:(

  2. Happy Mother's Day, Jill.
