backroads.......







Good morning Monday!




Let me tell you what a relief that today brings for me.......today starts the rest of a relaxing summer......




i hope.......




whew....




I had my open house on Saturday........and i could not have done any of it.... without the help of my friends.




These girls did not need to be asked to help....they just did.........my besties......these girls. I'm tickled to have such wonderful girls in my life........




thank you... Tracey....Marti.....Sharon...and....Amy .....xo. ...i really smashed all the pics together for you........i really only wanted to do one post of Saturday for you...































One of the biggest surprises was meeting Ashley and her mother Jerri....they drove all the way to my home from West Virginia......




They have been long time blog readers of mine...and it was so wonderful to finally meet them!




I even got to sneak away Sunday and meet up with them for brunch......mimosa's included..... at this fabulous place...
























































































































































This concludes the summer show.




I loved meeting all the new faces and look forward to doing one more event in late Sept or early Oct.




I am temporarily closing my online shop for the next few weeks so that i can re-group....re-focus....and just relax.




My children will appreciate having me back....




or not........





and i might even be able to wean myself off of the Tylenol p.m.
