New to Florida!
My silly expression seems to reveal just how excited I was to be picnicking beside the river I had sung about for nearly all of my 10 years.
We had just moved to Tallahassee from Grinnell, Iowa and I was giddy over this new world I was experiencing. We had Spanish moss and palm trees. We had air-conditioning! (Not to mention a dishwasher and disposal for the first time!) And best of all there were beaches we could visit on the weekend! This was probably my first picnic in Florida.
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!
