Look Who Came to Dinner!

Late Sunday afternoon my youngest son, Jeremy, called and wanted to know if I'd be working yesterday, because he had a meeting at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel [in downtown Detroit] and could come by The Whitney when his meeting was finished.

Yes, I was working yesterday and I'd be delighted to have him visit.  When Afternoon Tea was finished I clocked out and waited for his arrival.  It was his first time to visit The Whitney and see the mansion.  I waited for him on the front porch of my home away from home!

After the three-story tour of the mansion, I treated him to dinner.  Appetizer was Calamari, then Crab Bisque, and Jeremy's entree was Beef Wellington.  Mine was Seafood Sauté: Shrimp, Diver Scallops, and Maine Lobster on toasted Orzo.

It was so nice having one-on-one time with Jeremy.  Now I need to get my daughter, Lori, to The Whitney, then all three children will have seen where their mama works. 

I like the night view of Woodward Avenue as seen through the Drawing Room window in the picture below.


  1. What a nice surprise! One-on-one time with our grown children is rare and precious.

  2. How wonderful to enjoy dinner with your son and to share The Whitney with him. What a great start to the new year.
