Sue, my long lost friend!But the years passed, they went off the road as evangelists & pastored a church at Bloomington. Though we were not too many miles apart, we seldom saw them. Whenever our paths did cross, Sue & I would say that we needed to go back to Nashville for lunch, like we did several years ago.
She was busy being a pastor's wife, mother, & also worked. We intended to get together but it just never seemed to be the right time.
Our new lunch find...just off of Bean Blossom Road
Ten years passed & they left their Bloomington pastorate for one in Milton, Kentucky...just across the bridge from Madison. Somehow we got each other's email addresses and began writing once in a while. We promised to get together, but weeks, months & finally a few years went by.
Do you think we had a lot of secrets to share?Finally, today, after way too many years, we made time for each other! Sue drove up from Milton, we hugged each other & were on our way to Nashville! It was so good to see her again. We had plenty of catching up to do! Both of us are now grandmothers, she with 5 grandchildren & me with 6. You can imagine the time we had sharing!
Can you read the sign?
If he brings you flowers for no reason...
there is a reason!Thanks to the suggestion of a sweet little shop owner in Nashville, we traveled out a country road past Bean Blossom & had lunch at The Farmhouse Cafe. What a lovely place to eat, visit, & just enjoy each others company. I'm definitely going back to that little corner of floral heaven!
Beautiful gardens to tour..
& of course the plants were for sale!Then it was back for a little more shopping in Nashville, on to Columbus with a stop at Starbucks for a couple of Frappuccinos (it was 94 degrees out there!) & home for a little more visiting.

I'm so glad Sue made the effort to come to Columbus & we finally after all of these years got to have our lunch date in Nashville...or at least out in the country sticks nearby. Hopefully, neither of us will let the years pass by & we will get together for a little lady friendship lunch in the not too distant future.
