A Royal Day

Monday was a day off of school for me in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.  My girls had school, a snow make up day having been scheduled to take this holiday away from them.  This is the one day I could come up with to make a trip with my kitchen designer, Jen, to trek to Davenport and look at granite counter top.

Although the purpose of the trip was to select counter top, after doing a little research I found that the Princess Diana dress exhibit was still at the Putnam Museum in Davenport.  I came clean to Jen about my royal family obsession and she agreed to stop there with me.  





The dresses that I once enjoyed seeing in photographs I could look at up close.  Many of them had beading and details that I was never able to enjoy in a photograph.  Although we didn't spend a long time there, I loved the exhibit.

Incidentally, I did select a counter top for my kitchen.  That somehow doesn't seem nearly as exciting as seeing Princess Diana's dresses.

Counter tops can be exciting, but probably not as exciting as the dress. Can't wait to see what you chose!
