We loved our trip to Houston! If you don't follow us on Facebook, you should jump over there to see all of the pictures and fun that we shared. Here are a couple happy endings for you! We stayed at Le Meridien hotel, a very good home away from home for 4 nights. It was an easy and safe walk to the Convention Center and since the weather was nice, we enjoyed the stroll.
|I wanted to share this design on the wall in our room above the headboards. |
It's crafted to look like somewhere out in the galaxy!
It really was a very cool statement wall.
|And you know how we quilters can find quilt inspiration everywhere we go! |
This was the hallway carpet!
|And how thoughtful that they put a hexie pillow in the room! It was kismet!|
|And great graphic design in the hallway!|
|And then, there's the food!|
Our favorite morning stop on the jaunt over to the
convention center is Phoenicia.
It's a blend of market, deli, bar and restaurant.
We stopped there for breakfasts and sandwiches or salads for our lunches.
I love the tasty Mediterranean specialties that I don't see back at home.
|Even the names of these salads are enticing!|
|And how about all the varieties of beans and legumes |
on the never-ending shelves!
|Condiments, sauces, marinades, etc., etc.|
|A still life of fruit and olives!|
Knowing that this city so recently suffered damages from Hurricane Irma, and that the same convention center was a temporary shelter, our experiences are all the more memorable. Can't wait to go back!
