How would you describe your perfect day?
For me, any time spent with my family is perfect in my eyes. Whether we’re going on an adventure in the RV, or lounging around the house watching movies … if I’m with my family, I’m extremely happy and content!
This weekend has been perfect in my eyes.
I love exploring places we’ve never been before. Restaurants are no different. While we have our “favorites,” it is nice to try new places. Friday after work, I was mindlessly scrolling through Facebook when an article caught my eye. It was about the oldest restaurant in Columbia. Three generations have owned and operated it, with the current ones being the great grandchildren. It was impressive enough for me to gather my family in the car and head that direction for a nice meal. And, it did NOT disappoint either! Villa Tronco was a quaint little restaurant in downtown Columbia that I’d never heard of before reading the article. I can assure you that after Friday’s Italian meal, we will definitely be going back. We also recommend this place to any one visiting in our area. The food was so good that my youngest daughter actually wanted to lick the plate clean! I didn’t let her, mind you, because we do have manners. HA!
It’s been so hot here in the South where it is torture to ride with the top down in the convertible unless it’s later in the evening. As we left the restaurant, I put the top down on my Volvo and enjoyed the ride back home with the music turned up and the wind blowing through my hair.
Saturday, we spent a great deal of time at home with my husband tending to the lawn while our horses grazed freely in our yard. Then, as the day turned into evening, we took our horses for a sunset ride. Although it threatened thunder off in the distance, the storm held off for us to ride for a good hour and a half. I did not want to leave, it was that peaceful! There was a refreshing breeze blowing, and it made for a most comfortable trail ride providing a break from the summer heat we felt earlier in the day.
Sunday was spent around the house watching movies, laughing and playing with my children, and loving on our dogs. My husband finished cutting the front of our property, which with six acres is no small task. An evening storm rolled in awakening me from my much appreciated nap I had taken earlier in the day. Another movie, a short swim in the pool for my little one after the threat of the storm subsided, and that wrapped up a perfect weekend for me!
