When ones vacations, one works upon return


I know, I know I've been silent since returning but in my real life, not the vacation life or blog life, I returned from the Lowcountry to a madhouse at dagnabit...work. In my pre economic crash life of boutiques it would be smooth sailing into the Holiday season but in the post layoff world of wholesale auto parts (we sell to the guy who fixes your car) its been crazy. People have less for new so are reinvesting more in the vehicle they have & blend that with the dog days of Arizona summer...well its a madhouse.
I'm off to spend time with my parents for this weekend the first since I've returned but I'll be back hopefully end of this week. I have so many wonderful places to show you. I found gems.
I hope you enjoy one of my shots of Forsyth Park in Savannah. I leave you with my blessing a.k.a Grant & Hailey, taken at Elizabeths on 37th on my birthday. Yup the pink was Haileys idea for a bit of fun.
Have a lovely time with your families & see you soon.....

So nice to have you back even for one post......you were missed the past weeks. Thanks for the best wishes........our son's accomplishment was even more special as he has a story which I will share one day on the blog (if he will let me)that made this goal even remarkable. If you left your heart in Charleston, you will love Pat Conroys new book
(see on my sidebar). See you soon!

I love the park picture, what a lovely place to relax. Can't wait to talk to you and hear all about it. Think I'll have a little free tim this week.

I suppose the upside of being busy in this economic climate is that it means you've got some job security!

Love the pink bangs btw... ;)

The pink hair with the Lilly dress is classic!! A little punk with the traditional is always a nice touch!
