No longer falling
Revealing the Sun
Warming the day
Time to Come Home
No Complaint Here
Finds Ourselves in the Essence
Embracing these Still Moments
Birthday Celebration, Louisiana Style.
It was Sunday, the Sun beamed. It was Pat’s special day. The rain stopped, the sun beamed in glee. Friend’s, who are like family meant at Okra’s in Old Town Manassas. It was like being transported to Bourbon Street, New Orleans. Okra’s offered a nice variety of Cajun and Creole Appetizers, Entree’s and Desserts. Blackened Catfish is their top seller and they were out. The menu, music vibe, the decor, plus hospitality gives you that Southern feeling.
The Alligator and Crawfish appetizers were so delicious. Shrimp and Grits were a hit, along with Blackened Salmon and Jambalaya. We had a wonderful time of celebration fun, food and fellowship.
Next time your in the Northern Virginia or even passing through, stop in.
COMFORTABLE. CASUAL. CAJUN. CREOLE.

Reflecting back to our Friday Morning, excursion two weeks ago, brought a smile to my face. Our trip to a Flower Farm in Nokesville, Virginia was wonderful. We arrived around 9:30 at Burnside Flower Farmer. Mr. Sun was hiding behind the clouds, however it was extremely humid, yet still a gorgeous day.
It is definitely a Family Friendly place and a great place for a Photo Shoot. Admission is only $8.00 which includes Pull Wagons for your young children, access to play and Small Petting Zoo, Bouncer, and Picnic Area with Widescreen TV, picking access, a basket for flowers and Flower Clipper. They allow you to borrow lovely umbrella with a Giant Radiant Sunflower on it. You can also purchase your own umbrella, T-Shirts, drinks and snacks.
It was so captivating as we seized the moment, with every part of our being. The Sunflower🌻 Field was Nature’s Art, reminding us a touchable Sun.
There was much anticipation as we excitedly clipped each flower, then removing the leaves, putting them in Compost Bin. Selecting the perfect Vase underneath the covered white tent was fun. The prices varied from $2.99-$5.99 and the Sunflowers🌻 were only $1.50, the Lavender was only $1.00. Watching the Bright Orange faced Sunflower, smiling bright with Yellow petals, a touch Gold glistening softly “take me home.”
We took some wonderful photographs. Each Sunflower🌻 looked as though it was hand painted. A slight wind blew, the fields danced with such dazzling colors, it was elegant canvas.
