The last 24 hours in a nutshell.

1. Drove to my parents' house for a short, but sweet Mother's Day visit.

2. Saw a Piggly Wiggly, a small town square, tall pines, short bridges over "branches" (instead of "creeks"), brown thrashers, mockingbirds, cows, horses, and one mama deer and baby standing on the side of the road.

3. Smelled the aroma of speckled butter beans pressure cooking on the stove, jasmine on the vine, and smoke that had traveled for miles from the Georgia Fires still burning.

4. Heard a little girl giggle with her PaPa.

5. Tasted way too many speckled butter beans, some pork roast, a Hardee's breakfast biscuit, homemade hamburgers and pound cake. (It's a good thing I was only there for one night!)

6. Enjoyed the sweetness of being a mother and a daughter all at the same time.

And did I mention the butter beans?

Happy Mother's Day!

Butterbeans and a Hardee's biscuit is about as good as it gets for me.

I hope it was the pork chop one. :)

Sounds like a great way to spend the weekend!

Yeah, you mentioned the butter beans. I would have mentioned them more than once, too. There is just something wrong with people who don't like butterbeans. :-)

Sounds like the perfect Mother's Day to me. And you know? Even though I'm blessed to have both my mom and MIL with us here and spend every Mother's day with them, I never quite thought of it in the terms enjoying the day as both a mother and a daughter, if you know what I mean.

There's really nothing like being under your own Mother's roof, is there? Glad you enjoyed Mother's Day!
