Purple Mountain's Majesty
Just got back yesterday from my trip and we had a great time. Very quiet and serene, relaxing with no arguing. Let me state that again. No arguing. I don't remember a time where I've spent two days where I didn't hear an argument at some point. That picture is the view from my room in the cabin. This was basically looking out toward Blue Ridge. So gorgeous....and quiet. Did I mention how quiet it was? I don't think we mothers get exposed to quiet enough.
We spent most of our time just chilling out, but we were able to visit a little arts and crafts festival where one of the photographers very kindly offered each of us a free 5x7. My sister and I each purchased another print as well but I thought it was very kind of him to offer us a free piece. We did a little meandering in downtown Blue Ridge and I even sniffed out the LQS!! The cabin was great and we are planning on making this an annual trip.
I was frustrated leaving because I didn't get my travel bag finished in time to take it, but I had a little something in my email when I got back to make me feel better. I won a $25 gift card to Pink Chalk Fabrics from Rachel over at Stitched in Color! I may look to see if they carry any longer fabric for backing. I always seem to need that.
