My cousin Ginny who lives out in Lacey, Washington was here this week and we were able to grab dinner with her and her friend Richel Tuesday night in between their sessions.

On Thursday night, my sister Lindsay was in town for a concert. She sings in a professional choir called Festival Singers of Florida. They were performing at a conference in Winston Salem and came through Charlotte for one concert at Myers Park Presbyterian Church.
The church is very beautiful with lots of traditional details.
That's her. On the left.
To hear some of the concert, watch this!

And last, but not least, Brian (who pastored a church Zach was on staff with back in Decatur, GA) came to stay while he was in town for yet another conference. We had a fun time catching up and also trying out a new restaurant called Barrington's. Thanks for taking us Brian!
Barrington's is almost a secret, tucked away in the side of an unsuspecting shopping center. The entrance is hidden from view and easily missed altogether. The interior is an extremely cozy intimate space of only 13 tables.
We had an incredible server and the food was rich and divine. Wish I had better pics, but it was dark inside, as usual. I tried out a few things for the very first time including foie gras (duck liver) which is surprisingly delicious. It was served
I also had rabbit for the first time, in a traditional pot pie dish. O-mazing.
Incredibly creamy mashed potatoes
Lastly I has ginger cake served with frozen apricot yogurt. Very unique.
Zach had the r
And what a great week. I am so thankful for friends, family, food, and incredibly inspiring places like farmer's markets.
