Vacation Time.....Again!

This week my family will be arriving here to spend about two weeks with us. We will be doing the usual shopping and antiquing and I hope to have some new goodies to share with you. For the time they are here, I will be putting my Etsy shop on vacation mode. All pending orders will be finished and shipped this week. Until then have a great July!

Anniversary Day


Today is my and my husband's thirteenth wedding anniversary. It really doesn't seem like it has been that long. James never thinks so either as he jokingly say things like "We've only been married a couple of years, right?" I think that is very sweet! We had a Celtic themed wedding and our wedding bands have the Irish Claddagh on them.
I have wonderful memories of that day but it now that so many years have passed it is also touched with a bit of sadness remembering the loved ones that were there who are no longer with us including both my grandparents, two Aunts, and my boss at the time. They will always be remembered.
We were married on the grounds of the Settler's Inn In Hawley PA. Looking at their website I see it has changed quite a lot in the last thirteen years, but is still beautiful.
This in one of my favorite photo's of us taken in the sitting area of the lobby. Oh to look 24 again!

Tonight we are going out for dinner at a new sushi restaurant in town. I hope
it's good! Next month when my family comes for a visit we will have a little party with cake and champagne.

The Many Places Of Weenie

Weenie is my first baby. She was born in the spring of 1998 in the closet in the house we lived in when we were first married. You would think at the mature cat age of 12 she would be lazy. Not so! She is quite spry and chipper. Her latest thing to do is find new places to perch...such as the top of the refrigerator or the bookcase in the den. It's been fun seeing where she will go next so I have started documenting her with pictures.
