A Queen's Feast

Charlotte, NC

Hi there,
Doesn't Charlotte have a beautiful skyline? We don't drive into the city very often, and I am always amazed by it. It is Charlotte Restaurant Week, which is a great way to try out a new restaurant at a reasonable price. Last night we went to the Myers Park neighborhood, one of the oldest and most well-known areas near uptown, to an Italian place called Primo Tuscan Grille. We enjoyed a delicious four-course meal with primo friends Susan and David.

aka Typhoon Tammy & Stormin Steve

Notice the beautiful scarves worn by us belle ragazze. Sue and Dave just returned from #atripofalifetime to their family homeland, Italy. They brought me this bellissimo cotton scarf, most definitely in my best colors, a bello leather bracelet, and a box of chocolates from Torino, site of the 2006 Winter Olympics.

Our daughters played soccer together from ages 11/12 to ages 17/18. We have eaten together more times than you could count at every Cracker Barrel within a 200-mile radius. Lots of trips with teenage girls! Those years will always be some of the best memories of our lives, and the end result has been the permanent friendships our families have developed from those days. Now we enjoy getting together for any excuse we can find.

I hope you'll visit Charlotte one day. Queen Charlotte will be waiting to greet you!

  1. It's always fun to get together with friends, and adding a good meal only makes it better. Love the scarves!

  2. I love Charlotte, it really is a great city; my daughter wanted to move there until the Army had other ideas.
    Glad you are having a great time.

  3. I would love to visit one day in my future, you've made it sound delightful!! Gorgeous skyline :)

  4. So, so, so much fun - dinner with Tam and Steve!!!! Like Tammy said, we go waaayyy back and have lots of great memories to cherish! Our families have grown up together and we continue to celebrate the big (and small!) moments with each other... that will never change!


I'd love to hear from you!
