My wife and I took the train from Chicago for a reunion in St. Louis with long-time friends from Kansas City who, fortunately for us, like to stay at B&B's instead of motels. Their choice of Casa Magnolia at 4171 Magnolia Ave. made our 3-day visit to St. Louis far more memorable than anything Forest Park or anything else in the city could have prompted. The breakfasts, the room, the bed, the décor, the back yard patio, the incomparable ambiance and the cookies (oh, what cookies!) combined to make September 3-6 red-letter days on our 2013 calendar. What will stay with us the longest are memories of Lillabet and Jordi, our hostess and host, whose warm hospitality and willingness to share themselves with us surpassed all the splendid tangibles they had to offer. We feel as though we have made two new friends. Christmas cards to them will follow.
