The celebration of Mr. Mickey’s eighty-fourth birthday continues. I reserved our favorite table in the sunroom at Rowland’s in Westglow on Sunday evening.
We snapped the photos above in front of the bank near my home. The photo below was taken along the way to Blowing Rock. That is Grandfather Mountain in the background.
The rain was falling for much of the evening, but we were snug inside the mansion before it began in earnest.
Gary Brown manages the restaurant and expertly pairs wines with our dinner choices. He always makes sure every moment of our visit is top-notch. Mr. Mickey thoroughly enjoys having champagne and an hors-d’oeuvre while we unwind for a while in the living room after our long drive.
The adorable evening bag is the Sade Mini, created with a handwoven fabric made for FW Style in Nigeria. The Bag has been featured in everything from Vogue to Shark Tank. It also comes in different colors (black, stripe, purple). I appreciate the quality and details put into each of these bags. This one was a gift from Alexandria, whom I met for the first time at the Wine, Women & Shoes event a couple of years ago. She is the designer of FW Style bags. You can find the small size here and a larger scale, Sade “Midi” here.
The tweed pumps are by J. Reneé from last year. The necklace is old from Chico’s.
I hope your path leads to a garden that brings you joy.
