I'm Back!

I have been away on a family vacation for 6 days.

It  was wonderful. I am seriously missing me some warm pine-scented air,  laughter of family, good food, and starry skies..........

I had such a wonderful time with my mom, my sister, my cousins, and my aunties, and our horses.

Left to right: me, my mom Jan, and my sister Jennie.

Yes I am wearing a teeny tiny crown. I was our family rodeo princess last year and had to wear it one last time before I had to relinquish the title.


My cousin had this quote on her Facebook page this morning and it brought a tear to my eye:

"You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you." ~ Desmond Tutu

Tomorrow, it's back to work. I also have projects to complete for All That Jazz- more pillows to make and painting to do before our sidewalk sale in two weeks!

There were a lot of picture's taken over the last week that are going to be frame worthy. I will have to get some new frames. I don't have a picture of us cousins together yet.
That one of me, you and mom turned out good. Of course I love the one of our butts!! Too bad cousin J couldn't be in it :(
