That just says it all...we were in Birmingham last weekend for Peyton's baptism
Andy and I leave in the morning for the beach...I've been having some real mixed feelings about this...this will be the first time in probably close to 35 years that mom hasn't been with me for this annual trip. I've cried, I've had pep talks with myself, I've gotten sage advice from a very dear friend, my sweet DIL keeps checking on me, and my Andy is here supporting me every step of the way. I think I'm going to be OK. I started packing yesterday, made it through that. I've gathered enough sewing projects to keep me busy for 4 weeks (I'll be back home Wednesday) and my Kindle is full. Andy will be going with me tomorrow and he's coming home Monday and I'll stay a couple of days. Then I get back and Thursday morning we leave for Washington DC for a friend's daughter's wedding...home Monday. The boys are so confused...suitcases in and out...and the revolving door of pet/house sitters. I'm thinking by the time we get home from Washington they won't even look at us...LOL!
I had breakfast/lunch with a good friend on Wednesday...Gloria, she used to own The Olde Green Cupboard up in Jacksonville, FL. I haven't seen her in several years...but it was like we had visited the day before...we never missed a beat. Laughed and talked while we sat in Panera in Palm Coast, half way between the two of us, through the breakfast shift and the lunch shift. It was yummy! Thanks Glo for a really fun day...we'll do it again soon. Although I maybe shouldn't be talking to you anymore, since you hooked me up on Pinterest. OH MY! I swore I would NEVER do that...you guessed it...I'm in...hook, line and sinker...pinning, boards, sitting on the couch with the computer in my lap. What was I thinking...just kidding...I'm loving it...I had no idea what I was missing.
Have a great weekend everyone...I'll try to get a post off from the beach...we'll see how that goes.
