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.

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!!

Chai Green & Vanilla Chai Teas – STASH

I live on these teas in the winter!!! I usually make little gifts, with them, for the mail lady, and my mother & I trade teas every once in a blue moon, actually, my mother is who got me HOOKED on the Vanilla Chai. Thanks mom!
