Our Family Trip to Jamestown, Virginia in November of 2012

image I took this with my Android; It was a view of the ocean, between the wooden planked fence, from back in the era, on the Island of Jamestown. I have another picture, that is simular, but I like this one better.

image A little History, n’ some insight on the area, statue, and era.

image I was standing directly below the chimney, in the house frame. I took this with my phone, I now wish I had taken this with my camera, It would’ve looked SO much better!!

The start of another exciting adventure!!

Here I sit, next to my Husband, in our GMC truck. We are driving to Va., on a .5O business .5O pleasure trip. We left the house about 010:00 this morning, it will be about a 10 hour drive for us. I absolutely love the drive, its always so real, and beautiful. This will be my first time going to Va. at this time of the year. We have both been to Virginia, together. Heavens, my Husband was born and raised in Va. So this is nothing new for him, I am glad he knows his way around, because I don’t! Lol!
  Whew! Its FREEZING outside! I think they said it was 30* at 4 am, this morning, when I was still up, packing & cleaning house. I didn’t to bed, until about 05:45, and 5 minutes later, my Husband texted and said he was headed home early, so I just stayed in bed, and waited for him to come home. We ended up saying we were going to get up, in an hour, and leave by 09:00. Ha Ha Ha! Yeah. Right! We totally messed that up! Well, the good thing is, that we are on the road, and well on our way.

Last Saturday of October, 2012

Most of you know, tomorrow is not only the last Saturday of the month of October, it is also the day I am hosting my huge event!! Lots of fun stuff, going on, I have made a few board, on my blog’s pintrest account, kids costumes, adult costumes and even a pets costume board!  I hope you have noticed, I have not made this event a “Halloween” event, this is simply a ‘Costume Contest’; my reasoning being I do not believe in Halloween. I don’t like the idea behind it, and I would never dress my kids up, for any reason similar to that! Besides, have you seen what some young kids dress up as, these days! If you want to do that, with your kids, be my guest, but just don’t ask me to do that with my own.

Anyways, I just got back home a few moments ago, from yard sale hopping!! Oh boy! I found some super exciting items!!! I also picked up my specality items today, at Tree House Farm & Nursery. I had called about them yesterday, and I was stating that I was able to find EXACTLY what I was looking for, and a reasonable price!! I will definitely be going back there!!
  I now have a few minutes to get some props together for tomorrow’s event, call a few clients, and confirm their times to.arrow, and put my feet up a bit, before I have to set back out, and get the last minute items for tomorrow’s setup. If anyone is wondering, Yes, I will be arriving about 45minutes early, tomorrow, to set up, and maneuver everything is in line; for any of you who may have a few questions, or can not make it, at the specified times, and would like to do a few quick shots. 🙂 I can work with that!
  Oh! I set up a third date, for yet another session of 2013 senior pictures!! Yay!! I am so happy! I just love getting 90% of my business just from word of mouth!! I love my clients!!
