Wow, it’s been a full weekend over here! I don’t remember the last time we’ve been out two nights in a row. It’s sort of like getting back from vacation; I feel like I need another weekend to recover from my weekend, ha!
Friday night was the Phillip Phillips concert, and we had such a good time. I talked a bit about that in yesterday’s newsletter. It was his first live concert since the world shut down last year, so it was a really cool opportunity to be there for that. Plus, our last concert before Covid was actually a Phillip Phillips concert, so it was sort of like coming full circle.
Phil is such an incredible musician, and the two guys he played with — Dave Eggar and Errol Cooney — are also really special. If you’re into music at all, you should look them up.
Anyway! Suffice it to say, we had a great time, and I don’t think I’ll take live music for granted ever again. It was a great night.
Then last night, we met up with good friends who moved away last year. They were in the area, so we grabbed dinner at the Lititz Springs Inn and Spa in Lititz, PA. It sounds stuffy, but it’s not at all. It’s an old inn situated on a main corner in downtown Lititz that has been remodeled and modernized, with a beer bar modeled after a British pub attached to it.
Both have indoor and outdoor dining, and we sat outside in the courtyard that’s part of the inn. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent and perfectly paced, making it was the perfect spot to catch up with old friends. Plus, it was a beautiful night — warm and breezy without much humidity.
Paul and I got in early, so we walked around Lititz a bit, and of course we had to stop into Wilbur Chocolates and stock up on treats to bring home.
In addition to the chocolate shop and the inn where we ate, Lititz has lots of cute shops and bakeries, and in the summertime there’s a calendar of special events. If you ever find yourself in Lancaster County, I highly recommend checking it out.
I should have taken more pictures, but the one I put on my Insta Story doesn’t translate very well. The filter I had on kind of dulled the colors, and I didn’t take time to frame my shot. I always enjoy following people on IG that take lots of good pictures when they’re out and about, but I always feel rude to my companions, and awkward when there are strangers in the shot. Am I the only one?
Paul did snap this one at dinner, before our friends arrived. I’d rather have had him in it, but I didn’t want to bother the waitress. Anyway, it shows the courtyard a bit. It’s beautifully landscaped with lots of pretty flowers greenery.
So yeah, it’s been a full weekend, and today we have church and a gathering afterwards, so I’m really going to be peopled out when all is said and done.
I’m not really sure what this week holds, but I’ve got a feeling it’s going to be a doozie. I’m kind of afraid to look at my calendar, lol! It’s our last full week before we take Caroline to college, so yeah… there’s a lot to do, and also a lot of emotions flying around our house at the moment.
Meanwhile, I’m going to try to relax and enjoy my Sunday. It’s a pretty one, for once! The sun is shining, and it should be nice all day, so maybe we’ll get some pool time this afternoon.
I hope you have a restful and blessed day!
