Friday last I drove to Canton to be with my sister and mom. We had a lovely evening in Cumming, Georgia. We dined at Tam's Backstage downtown. I loved the food and even more, the conversation. We had the rare opportunity to catch up on life, wedding planning, kid stories and more. We convened in time to see 'Dearly Departed', a comedy about family drama around a Southern Baptist funeral. Southern accents were required for all the actors, but no one was able to pull it off. In fact, the actors were able to pull nothing off. The comedy turned to community theater tragedy and we made an early departure (discreetly, at intermission) from 'Dearly Departed.' On Saturday we made something of a pilgrimmage to the North Georgia Premium Outlets. Shopping with my 2 head fashion advisors and without children made the morning a delight, despite Memorial Day crowds. Thanks for a fun time Gloria and mom. Thanks to dad for keeping his little buddy, Cecilia, for much of the weekend.
