In the midst of the craziness of Thanksgiving, Big and I took off. We had to run errands (sincerely, I needed to get a lamp part and there was only one place I could get it).
But, we also needed some time.
A little hanging out.
A little something special to hide away in our hearts during the bustle.
And what better place than Le Madeliene?
They have girly food.
And a fire.
And insanely delicious desserts.
So we stole some time.
And ate an early dinner.
And hung out.
And it felt like we played hooky from our obligations for just a little while.
And we kind of did.
Because sometimes when you’re 44 or 13, you need a break.
And a little treat.
And a chance to breathe and be yourself.
And a special little memory to hide in you heart.
And maybe a strawberry Napoleon.
I know I needed it.
Big needed it. She said it was her favorite part of the week.
How about you? Any special breaks this week? Please, make a plan for a little something special for you and a loved one during this crazy holiday season. It doesn’t have to be fancy. Or expensive. Just a little time to hide away and a memory to cherish.
