Had a Simply Awesome relaxing time. I needed a break from life and from "social networking". I left the lap top home and only answered texts from my hubby and kiddos. I almost left the camera home too, and probably should have. {I only took a handful of photos.}

There was a lot of sewing, crocheting, staying up late, sleeping in, talking, laughing, crying, eating really good food, and memories to last a life time.

Both Lori and Nedra have posted about our week together, so if you're an inquiring mind, you must go visit their blogs and take a peak. I especially lov

See ya around.....

I've met many people "in person" that I met on the internet. Each time it amazes me how something brings us all together and makes this world much smaller.

I heart my internet friends!
