Jenny and I had a wonderful day today! For those of you who don't know Jenny is my youngest daughter. She is expecting in July! We had decided to spend the day and part of the evening together and what fun we had. I drove up to Jenny's house in Concord, NC. That is about 45 minutes away from my house. When I got there we then drove into the little town of Concord. There is a shop there called The Bead Lady. What a treasure trove of things that lady has!! I of course, bought some things. When then went to a Christmas Shop, an antique shop and another little shop which had some really cute things! We then had to go to the Chocolate Shop/Bakery and have a wonderful cannolli and tea!! We then left Concord and came back down to Charlotte. We went to another bead store called The Bead Lush (don't you just love the name!!). We didn't stay there long, just had to exchange a defective bead. We went one street over to a place called Dish and had lunch. It was good to sit and chat after so much walking! Then we came back to my house and started creating. I think I made 5 pairs of earrings for Jenny and she designed 3 necklaces that I will be making up at a later date. Then Kevin (Jenny's husband) arrived and we had dinner. I made chuck roast, mashed potatoes and corn. Jenny and Kevin love this meal.
We had such a wonderful day! Here is a picture of Jenny at my jewelry table creating away:
Jenny still creating but she took her hair down. I guess she can create better with her hair down-LOL!!
Some wooden beads and steampunk items she was putting together.
I just love days like this! Another one for the memory book!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
