Lunch in the Village

 
Saturday afternoon we had lunch in the Village. We've never eaten here before but you can bet we'll be back.

  
This is an art gallery and restaurant and the atmosphere is unlike any other place I've been.
  
It was a bit of a splurge for us right now since we are saving every penny we can.
  
But you can see that it was worth it.

  
The food was incredible. We all got something different and it was all delicious. I can't wait to go back...without the kids. 

  
Afterward we headed across the street to the coffee shop for what appeared to be the perfect cuppa. I wouldn't know as I don't like coffee. This makes me want to try really hard though.
 
Coming back home gets harder every week but we know we will be there soon and for good and that really is keeping us going. We are down to about 3 weeks until we list the house if the weather will cooperate with us so we can get some exterior work done. I might be a little scarce for awhile as I work to get every thing ready. I'll catch up with you all soon.

  6. So funny, I recognized the place in your pictures right away! We've stopped in there a few times while visiting my in-laws but we've never had lunch there. Next time I'll have to go there for a bite to eat.

    Good luck with the final preparations before your house goes on the market. March is the perfect time to put it up for sale with Spring starting to peak out everywhere, it just makes any house look more lovely!

  9. My mother in law used to work at the Sanctuary, and I loved going to visit her there- I haven't eaten at the cafe recently, but the aura of the whole gallery is so peaceful- it makes me happy.

  14. I love that you call all who comment creative and brillant. That is exactly what I tell my husband to call me. lol. What an incredible place to dine.It seems like you'd really be dining there, as opposed to merely eating. So cool.

  16. You don't like....coffee? I mean, like, you took that picture, and you just couldn't take a sip? Jen, I really hate to be the one to break it to you....but livin' in the Village, and not liking coffee? Why, why....it's just un-American. I'm gonna help you move in, ok? Me and Shannan, we'll come, and help....just take us to this restaurant, and get me that cuppa coffee!

  19. You are one *mad* (not "that" kinda mad) worker bee mama! I'm so impressed. It almost makes me feel like I could muster the gumption to mop my floor or something.

    I could mop whilst dreaming of lunch with you in the Ville.

    (Yep - that "whilst" was just for you. You don't like???)
