There's no place like home!!!
Oh to be home! There is truly no place like it. My bed is more comfortable, the fireplace is brighter, the tea tastier....everything is just BETTER when you return home from a trip. Don't you agree? Two weeks is just too long to be away. I used to love to travel and be away from home but I'm finding the older I get, I actually just want MORE time at, you guessed it! Home!
The trip was good and I have LOTS of shots/footage to share, but it will take some wading through first. Highlights? How about some manatees? Dolphins? A precious Princess? Even a pod of migrating whales!!! For a nature lover, it just doesn't get much better than the east coast of Florida. Abby and I set the goal of seeing a roseate spoonbill in its natural habitat before we left OUR natural habitat- and we saw 4 of them!
On the craft side of life, have any of you ever heard of Alabama (Natalie) Chanin? A friend of mine has recently aquainted me with her work and I am an instant fan. Hand stitching. Everything she does is hand stitched. Kind of slow "sewing", if you will. Well I'll let you in on a little secret if you will promise to keep your fingers crossed for me..........I applied for a scholarship to join her (and a few other folks) one weekend in May for a personal workshop! Oh I hope I get it!
So what are you talented folks making for Valentine's Day? I need some serious inspiration! I sure have missed you and can't wait to hear from you!
I am mother to 2 and wife to 1 for 20 years. Leaning on Jesus and taking advantage of the grace made free to me through Him! I enjoy lovely things, cooking, antiquing, cross-stitching, traveling, and reading. Falling in love with our new home, New York.
