Mother Daughter Luncheon

It became an annual event at Antioch Christian Church about 5 years ago. On the last Saturday in September every year the Ladies Aid Society hosts a mother-daughter luncheon for the women in our community. This year I'm proud to say that we had 65 guests for lunch! Keep in mind, people, my church only has 47 members! Ha!

This is one of my most favorite events at my little country church because I am a HUGE fan of women in general. But I'm especially fond of the mothers in my church and my 'hood. I love bringing these women together and just marveling at the children they've raised and the grandchildren they're making memories with. You can see the love in the room...

And I am especially giddy when my own mother and daughter get to attend! Living 4-5 hours away makes for special planning to get here. And I respect that they both have schedules to keep, husbands and homes to care for and, quite frankly, it costs a lot of money to travel anywhere these days. Which is why my heart was so full this weekend because I got to have them both with me! We didn't think my mom would make it for a number of reasons but she (and my father) so unselfishly got up Saturday morning at 3:30 and made the treck to NC simply so that my mom could have lunch with me at noon... Believe me, I never doubt how much my mom loves me...

I thought I'd share a few pics from the day...

Here's little Bran with her proud mama!!! Isn't she beautiful?

And here we are! That little schtoogy of mine, my mama and me! Obviously, I got the Robinson (my dad) genes - tall, "monkey arms", wide nose and big feet - and I'm proud of all of it!!

After dinner Saturday night, my mom, dad, Bran and I went to The General Store Cafe in Pittsboro to enjoy the music of a local band called "Rootzie". That's me and Bran up there!



See what I mean? I AM MY FATHER'S CHILD!!! THERE'S NO DENYING THAT (look at those noses, people)! SMOOCHES TO YOU, DADDY! YOU ARE MY HERO IN EVERY WAY!!
I had a wonderful weekend and I am one lucky girl.
