March 28, 2014 at Enchanted Rock in Texas!
When I gathered with my dear Book Club friends at this table, I knew I was getting close to my goal of listing 60 picnic memories! And it was still a over a month from Mother's Day, when I hoped to reach the goal. But this had nothing to do with goal setting. This group was doing what we have done for 15 years. We have discussed books... and laughed, joked, sung, shared stories, argued, yawned, squealed and even shed a tear or two around many a food covered table. I will always remember this day fondly... the first time our book club hiked and picnicked together!
Mom's Picnic List
In honor of my mother on the first Mother's Day since she has passed, I dedicate a new list... Mom's Picnic List!
Mom loved picnics and she raised her kids to appreciate the simple pleasures of food, family and friends in the great out of doors.
I will spend a year reflecting on as many past picnics as I can remember. But, I'll also
appreciate the here and now by creating new picnic experiences. My goal is to share at least 60 picnic memories, since that's how many years Mom was a mom!
Let the picnics begin!
