Simple Pleasure - Lunch With Someone You Love

Me and my adorable great niece, Ainsley.
A few days ago, three people, dear to my heart, joined me for lunch in a gazebo near my work. Yes, the gazebo is in the middle of a cemetary, but it's a peaceful (and always quiet) place to escape. :-) I returned to work refreshed and ready for whatever.

Joining my twin for her Simple Pleasures party.


  1. I agree with you about a peaceful place to eat lunch when you are at work. But you had an added pleasure with your lunch. She is adorable.

  2. Looks like that precious little one enjoyed your company as much as you enjoyed hers. I'd say you all had a perfect lunchtime together :)

  3. that babe is the cutest.....and peaceful lunch with friends...always great.

  4. Gayle, your niece is a real little sweetie!
    I love how the both of you have matching waves created by the breeze :-)
    bless you..Trish

  5. I bet you had a wonderful visit and the little darling is loving her Aunt ~~spoil her good 1!!

  6. She has such a precious little smile and looks like it was an absolutely beautiful day. Best wishes, Tammy

  7. such a adorable baby...and she looks so happy. It's always such a treat and "simple" pleasure to share a meal with a friend.

    Thanks for sharing.

  8. It was a very special lunch, and cemeteries have been one of my favorite spots for visiting since 1985 when my dear father-in-law passed away. It's such a peaceful place.

  9. A break like that in the middle of a work day must be so welcome. Looks like it was a beautiful day and baby girl is so cute.

  10. I feel so sorry for Ainsley. The poor little thing is just not loved enough.

    You and Dayle remind me so much of myself when my niece was born. I just couldn't get enough of her. I can't wait until I'm a great aunt.

    In my humble (ahem) opinion, I've been one all along.

    Reading this post reminded me of when we would visit my own aunt (a great one!) during her lunch hour. My mom was a stay-at-home, and Aunt Evie was a secretary. We would shop in the city where she worked and she would take us to lunch.
    Such memories.

    Sorry to write a novel here...
