Buon Giorno

The coffee shop is open for business.
If only it weren't 30 minutes away.
Not that it stops me from going, but it sure would be nice.
It's called Buon Giorno and I could (and have) spend many hours there. Jenny has created a warm, hip, inviting, stimulating environment. She is so fabulous with design, and she has worked so hard. I feel very proud to have helped just a little.

Here's a little creation called a Tuscany Mocha. Dark chocolate and orange. I've never had a refreshing coffee before. It was faboo.

This is the "six o'clock lounge" otherwise known by some of the adults (who obviously know things) as "make-out room."

Emma and Mom at the counter. It's her last day to be four. She'll be five tommorrow.

sigh.

another sigh.

Jen painted this table. Isn't it so cool? She is just oozing talent, is our Jenny.
So tommorrow is the Princess Party. I'm so excited about her present, I could just spit. I mean it. And I could also spit because I went to Target at 9:30 at night to get a new battery for my camera and they were OUT. grr. We do have the movie camera though. Watch this space.

PS. the coffee shop is in Grapevine, if you are in the area.
