And now an ode to my Heart's Day Weekend in the good ole ATX.
Roses are red, violets are blue,
I needed some fousin time, we were definitely due.
So I headed to Austin, down I-35,
It was a wee bit icy. It made for quite the drive.
We toasted the start of the weekend with a spot of red wine,
we talked for hours on end, twas quite divine.
The next day called for a bit of light shopping,
and coffee at Mozart's. It was definitely hopping.
Then out to Malaga for tapas and more wine,
on flatbread, mahi-mahi and chicken we deliciously did dine.
The following day began with church and a stroll,
with the sun shining bright, there was no nead to cajole.
After some iced coffee and browsing, we made our way
to a Valentine's brunch at South Congress Cafe.
On the delectable menu for the day were items both savory and sweet,
we feasted on carrot cake french toast, an omelette and mango-infused mimosas that couldn't be beat.
We concluded our celebrations with an afternoon show,
as for the film Valentine's Day, it's most certainly a no-go.
Nevertheless, the weekend was just what the doctor ordered and more.
A weekend in Austin with one of my dearest fousins is never a bore.
Thank you China for such a fun weekend! And thank you even more for your wisdom, counsel and friendship. Your presence in my life is a blessing!
