Sharing A Memory Of My Husband-A Cadillac Breakfast

New Year's Eve is a very significant day for me because, on December 31, 1981, I met my late husband, Paul. I have shared memories for the past three years. If you would like to read them, feel free to click the links below:

On this NewYear's eve-I would like to share a memory from our honeymoon in 1983. We received an invitation offering an opportunity to purchase a timeshare, which I talk about more in this post- 1983 Honeymoon Purchase.
In the phone call invitation, they told us a continental breakfast would be offered.  Neither of us knew what a continental breakfast was; at any rate, we thought it sounded like it would be a hearty breakfast. When we arrived at the presentation, both of us very hungry, we soon discovered that a continental breakfast consisted of coffee, juice, toast, and fruit, which was a far cry from being a hearty breakfast. We were looking forward to eggs, bacon, sausage, and hashbrowns. Not exactly what we had in mind; however, we made the best of it. This became a joke between the two of us throughout our marriage, and we renamed that breakfast "A Cadillac Breakfast." Since Paul was a mechanic, this was a unique way for us to always remember that day.
I do like sharing memories; they bring me joy.
