Mother of the Bride Spot

Random thoughts on being a Mother of the Bride...although since we are now past The Wedding, perhaps this would be better titled Random Thoughts On Life In General...

Wheaton's French Market

Bob and I have just returned from the French Market which is an integral part of downtown Wheaton on Saturdays from 8:00 to 2:00, May through October.

It's just delightful. All sorts of vendors, from vegetables to jewelry to flowers to pottery to cheese to baked goods -- and a few other odds and ends. Today we came home with our usual two bunches of mini-carnations (cheap date, only $3/bunch, and they last nearly 2 weeks), a cranberry scone to split, a small jade plant which Bob hopes to nourish along (we are great at killing jade plants) and an inexpensive black leather fanny pack that I hope to use to house a walkman in order listen to audiobooks -- but that's for another post.

It's also a great place to run into friends -- today we saw Sean and Jenn (Jenn was Jill & Torrey's wonderful wedding coordinator, and Sean made the wedding slide show into something more than a powerpoint presentation! And our wedding video into a treasure).

It's always crowded -- even when it rains. Sometimes I see moms who proudly reintroduce me to their babies; fat, sassy, and often still breastfeeding. Sometimes it's folks from church, and sometimes a neighbor or two.

As we drove home, I commented to Bob, "Have I mentioned this week how much I just love living in Wheaton?"

Not ready to move yet.

Nope, not yet.
