Don’t be MAD at me....

I know it will sound like I’m bragging....

but I went to TWO Fall festivals Saturday, Oct. 22nd!

(the Pickin’ Patch was last weekend)


I was SO tired and happy that I couldn’t fall asleep last night!

We drove to McIntosh to the BIGGEST and

most FABULOUS Festival in the history of Festivals!


I’ll do a couple of posts to show you everything but this morning I want to share photos of my ‘blog buddies’!

I met Sandy from the Olde Country Cupboard and her daughter, Samantha from Samantha’s Accessories.


They were both so sweet and FUN!


AND YES...I bought something ...


I’ll take photos SOON!


Then off we went to Brooksville to the Strong Tower Vineyard and Winery!

And who do you suppose was there?

My dear friend, Dianne from Pieces of D !


I told her I would be there with feathers in my hair

and she recognized me when I walked by!


We had SO much fun chatting and hugging! We were best friends already so it was like seeing her again after a long time...instead of for the first time!


(I bought something special that she made! I’ll post it soon)

The lady that put feathers in my hair was there, too!


So it was the BEST day and I am still BUZZING!

Isn’t it wonderful to meet blogging buddies?

Enjoy your day!

Hi Diane,
I have been on hiatus after my son's wedding early November. Had to regroup and organize after the focus on the wedding. We had a wonderful time in Houston and the wedding was like a storybook wedding. I posted photos of our Thanksgiving at Alderbrook Resort today and will post wedding photos over the next week. I have sooooo many photos! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am going to have to catch up on your blog and read what I have missed. Thanks for sharing the photos of the fall festivals. That is so wonderful that you saw a blogging friend there! Hope you have a beautiful day today. xoxo Kim
