Return from a Happy Road Trip




A few months ago one of my sweet friends told me she was going to a trade show...it sounded like fun so I said "I wanna go toooo." So we made plans to go together. Oh my WHAT was I thinking? Pennsylvania in February....now I have lived in Pennsylvania and so I do know, somewhere in the deep recesses of my mind, about the snow. and the cold. the bitter mind numbing (and everything else numbing) cold. But, I DID want to spend some time with my friend AND I was DUE a trip. So I set off in my trusty little truck happily confident that there would not be any snow because I had asked oh so sweetly that there not be any. Ha ha. You can see the snow. And I have to admit, I kinda liked seeing it again because it has been a long long time. I also have to admit that I quickly got over it. Snow and mind numbing cold aside, I had a wonderful time! My friend, Carolyn from The Odd Sparrow was her usual charming, funny self AND her family, well she has a fabulous family. I had such a great visit and was treated sooooo well I would go back at any time...well okay, NOT in the winter LOL.

Now I have a lot of catching up to do so I am off to visit all of you, oh I have missed ya'll !

Next post some photos from the show. Until then, my wish for you:
May nothing but happiness numb your mind !

Oh my god Francie! Your tiny body can't take that kind of cold! We've only officially had one snow storm for winter, that didn't amount to more than a 1/2" ! lol.. I'm with you, keep it warm and cozy~ Our temps were 70 degrees yesterday and today, ahhh...love it!

What market did you go to? Cathy and I talked about going to Atlanta in March, but it doesn't look like my funds will allow it. I so envy you, I love the market. Boo-hoo!

Keep warm my sweet, I sure do miss you!
xoxo

Hi Francie,

I think I am due for a vacation myself. I'm glad you had fun with Carolyn. How was the show?

I planning go taking a trip to visit a friend in April myself. One thing I know for sure, the weather WILL be warm there.

Miss talking with you.

Hey Francie! You were in my neck of the woods! Yes we have had some nasty, nasty cold weather this year along with more ice than snow it seems. I am happy to look at your springtime wreaths and dream....
