About a mile from where we lived back in Pendleton, SC was a cute little wine bar in the town square. Palmer and I frequented this spot, but also he would sometimes play guitar and sing there on the weekends or on special events. It was at one of his performances there that we met the Eaton family and specifically little Adeline who, though she was quite shy, was always the first one to get up and dance.
Fast forward a few months and Jennifer Eaton (mom) and I joined the wine bar book club where we read some really great and some really bad books, all while sipping down some delicious wine. We were often the only two that showed up regularly to our club, so we quickly went from just book club friends to real friends. Now that we’ve moved I still miss those once a month meetups to chat books and life with chilled rose, but I’m glad I was able to take a snapshot of their lives on my last swing through Pendleton.
