Everyone needs a girlfriend weekend.  I just got back from my friend Sandy's house. I spent several days of girlfriend time eating, shopping, laughing, eating, shopping, talking, and eating, shopping, and drinking good wine.  I got to hang out with long-time friends Sandy and Carole Jo.  I also met some new friends and am looking forward to seeing them again.  Mary is Carole Jo's work colleague  and good friend,  Kate is her college roommate, and Judy is Kate's mother-in-law.  Judy is a talented artist.  Here we are after a breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt, and cinnamon crumble coffee cake, energized to shop.

We spent the day in Berlin, Maryland.  It's a quaint town where the movie, Runaway Bride, was filmed.

It was a day for boutiques and antiques.

We found some accessories at TaDa and Nest, two boutiques.

Entering Nest.

Inside Nest.

Then we had lunch at the Hotel Atlantic.

Rockfish tacos.  Yummy.

Then some antiques here.

 We ended the day pool side at Judy's home.

You can tell how sunny and beautiful it was by the washed out photos.  Sorry.

The next day we spent in Lewes, Delaware.   More boutiques and antiques.  Here's Heritage Antiques where Sandy has her fabulous finds.

And, her booth.

If you missed the photos of Sandy's house, go here.
My next post will contain  images of the vignettes in her home.  Don't miss it.

Then off to eat at a bakery/cafe called Cake in Lewes.
Grilled cheese sandwiches with fontina cheese on home made bread with a side of duck fries.
(I guess I'll be jogging this off all week.)

What a good time.  Please make time for a day (or two) with friends.
