a day at Longwood Gardens…

I LOVE Longwood Gardens, just outside West Chester, PA. I decided on a whim that on this amazingly clear warm late summer day that Daryl and I were BOTH off, we should spend some time here. We strolled and sat, strolled some more, then ate a leisurely lunch. Daryl took an extra allergy pill (he truly works at our relationship) and everything was fine until he said at the end of our outing that “Mr. Longwood should be proud!*” I laughed SO hard that I actually cried. I love that silly man.

SO relaxed while enjoying a spectacular day at Longwood Gardens.

    Hahaha… Mr. Longwood. Daryl, you are a funny dude. I miss you guys so much. A few more weeks & i’m hoping I can get away for a drink or a quick bite so we can catch up. Lots of love to you both.
