Thursday morning Miranda and I will be taking off for Wisconsin! I could not be more excited! Do you want to know why?
I get to spend time on the farm where I grew up.
I get to experience Autumn. You know, gourds and pumpkins and scarecrows. Oh my.
I get to attend my niece Erica's wedding. That's Erica on the right, with my daughter Miranda, when they were younger. They decided to pick the apples from their grandparents apple tree and sell them in their little make-shift produce stand. (thanks to Little Tykes) Quite the savvy businesswomen I must say.
Erica and our son Shawn are only 3 months apart. Can't believe they're 27 years old now... and both married.
I get to stop at real roadside stands and then wish I could take home armloads of pumpkins and bushel bags of honeycrisp apples.
I get to sew with my sisters. I made the above handbag last October. Ginny made the darling pincushion. I wonder what she will teach us this time?
I get to spend time with my family. This picture was taken at my Dad's 80th birthday celebration in 2006. The last time we were all together.
I get to visit my Dad in the nursing home. It will be nice to be together again.
