Loving Distractions

"Leave it to a loved one to distract us when we most need it and bring a smile to our face." ~Mama Hen
My cousin visiting from Spain was just the distraction I needed at this time. She is amazing and filled with such love, comfort and warmth. This morning we headed up north to one of my favorite little towns for a couple night stay. We started the day with a delicious breakfast at Little Chick's and my "ladies luncheon" hot spot. They had an instrumental band playing and it set the tone for a fun filled day. We then headed up to Mystic Aquarium to share one of our fond weekend places with my sweet cousin. It was lots of fun as always! We topped off our visit with Little Chick's favorite tradition of a lollipop from the gift shop. We all indulged and were very happy we did. Then we went to the Inn we are staying at and got settled in. Little Chick has been asking for a week now about swimming and so we made sure to get in the pool right after dinner. When we got ready to sleep we ordered hot cocoa, which ended the day perfectly. It was truly a lovely day with family!
