What a blessing to have had the past two weeks! Fine people, beautiful scenery, and kindred spirits to nourish the artistic soul. Met some lovely, lovely business women from Make Mine Pink and we stayed in a beautiful beach house in Dennis. Great mix of business and pleasure to say the least. The women at the business retreat were phenomenal each in their own right. And the shops on the Cape are as noteworthy as the owners. You are going to get to see some new Broken China Jewelry pieces and spoon bracelets from our shopping forays.
It started with a road trip from Baltimore to Massachusetts with Roxie from Candylights.net (check her out darling lights out). We went through several beautiful states. She is a wonderful driver and I can't say enough good things about GPS. If you don't have one and you do road travel...run, don't walk, to get one. I had gotten one at Amazon for Mom on her 70th and she loaned it to us. I got back to Texas and ordered mine right away from WalMart (they had a great bundle deal). Mom's took us through New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts so easily with some side trips along the way. However, it did not warn us about all the tolls. I think that Roxie and I were both shocked at the number of toll roads. Wow! I wouldn't mind even a miniscule piece of that pie.
As much fun as I had despite the cold and sinus problems and computer crashes, I am happy to be home. I think that travel makes you appreciate home more...I may have to do this more often!
