May all your weeds be wildflowers!

Jay's parents took us and my Sis-in-law and Bro-in-law to Rising Fawn, GA for the weekend. It was so beautiful and we had so much fun. It was just one night but we ate enough food for about a week. I feel like I'm going to explode.


This morning we had brunch at a place in Mentone called The Wildflower Cafe & Country Store. It was the cutest place. None of us were hungry (we had already had breakfast) and thought we would just look around at the store. Of course, after we got in and heard the brunch special, we had to stay. They had an appetizer called Sweet Potato Biscuits which I have to say, was OUT OF THIS WORLD!

We had just gotten seated by the sweetest girl when we realized we knew each other! It turns out we went to high school together and she and her husband now own the place! How crazy is that!? We were even entertained with live music.

Ya'll totally need to check out Laura's website http://www.mentonewildflower.com/. Make sure to peruse the lunch and dinner menus. You'll be wishing you were in Mentone!

I just LOVE Mentone. Is the Gourdie doll shop still there? I went there a few times as a kid. It's so pretty! Oh, and I'll post the beautiful blogger thing soon. I started it, but got distracted by my crazy new puppy who loves to CHEW and PEE.

We're going to Rising Fawn in a couple of weeks too! To the B&B we stayed at a few months ago - General Woods Inn. Is that where y'all stayed?

And we have thought about eating at the Wildflower Cafe - it looked delicious online!

I just took my daughters there for a birthday trip. They turned 12. We had such a sweet time. We stayed at DeSoto State Park, but went to Mentone, had lunch at the Wildflower and shopped at the White Elephant. It was such a special time.
