    I love that Bev’s cafe…. they have a breakfast dish called ‘The Nest’ (I think) It’s a pancake with sausage or bacon in the batter & cooked with an egg right into it…. one of my favorite breakfasts EVER ordered anywhere! I wanna go back to Red Wing. I do love your picture memoirs. Happy early Summer!! 🙂

    Loved seeing bits of your week. A perfect one it seems to me–family time, me time, food time, shopping time, outdoor time…:) xx

      Thank you, Danielle! It’s been a good spring so far. Trying to focus on balancing the different areas of my life. It seems like when I’m working on a big project it has the tendency to consume the other areas too. It’s been nice to give myself actual “office” hours so I can leave work like other people. Otherwise my “scenes” posts would just be photos of my computer, notebooks, and camera 😉 hee hee…xoxo
