An Unexpected Mother's Day Gift From CC
Yesterday, the three of us took a trip downtown to Angelique Cafe, a quaint French bistro almost completely hidden by delightfully plentiful plants and flowers that sits on a triangle of land where Spring and Main streets meet.
We grabbed a table upstairs, which was light and airy and opened out onto a small balcony, where you could sit and enjoy the sun and the various and sundry characters (a clown, a mermaid, just to name two) who were strolling the gritty streets.
After several visitors finished their Croque Monsieurs (or would that be Croque Messieurs?) and salads, we had the whole top floor to ourselves, and CC decided to use it as her personal ballet studio.
I'm so glad I was able to capture this moment in the above video. It was spontaneous, beautiful and completely unselfconscious. Whatever music was playing overhead seemed to know that, too.
A perfect gift for Mother's Day.
And a very Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and grandmothers out there!
