The Real World Awaits!

A great way to end a vacation is to have a holiday Monday to start the week! It is always a bit difficult to dive back into the real world of responsibility once again. Why is it that it always feels like one needs a vacation to recuperate from vacationing??!

I had a wonderfully relaxing time with family, attended an inspiring church meeting in Vail to keep me on track, tried several new recipes which I'll pass on in time, and slept most mornings until 8:00am! Woohoo! I even spent a little time shopping, hiking and game playing! I sat and watched the entirety of "Anne of Green Gables" as well as the sequel "Anne of Avonlee", (without multitasking!) Quite possibly my all time favorite movies. Anne is so full of style and imagination! I'll share with you soon one of my favorite quotes as spoken by her regarding imagination. Stay tuned!

Last night when we returned home, I made some progress unpacking and this compilation of shoes is what I ended up with!



Yes! Those are pink tennis shoes! (I actually do wear them.....)

Do any of you take this many shoes for a 10 day vacation?! Yikes! I'll admit that I did purchase at least two pair while away......but still, this looked impossible to me! I wore every pair, I might add!
I spent the day today manning our room at the Designer House for Bucks County and we were busy! I wondered if the attendance would be light due to the holiday, but I was pleasantly surprised. For those of you who have not had a chance to visit the house yet, this is the last week! Our room has been very well received. Tickets can still be purchased at Black-eyed Susan as well as at the door, so I hope you'll have time to be inspired by the style you will see!

The cruel world of responsibility and work awaits! I feel equal to the task.

I just went to Utah to visit family and took three pairs of shoes for two days, but I only wore one pair. This happens every time. Will I ever learn?!

Welcome back.

I do always feel like I need a vacation to recuperate after a vacation. What the? However, I fail to see how your holiday helped you ease back into real life when you were working on the holiday...

Welcome home, Susan! Yes. I do bring about that many pairs of shoes on vacation - I wear most of them, too. :-) I REALLY have to be careful when it's a winter vaca. Boots, you know...

Designer House was wonderful. All of it! After telling them a bit about the tour, two of my neighbors are going today. (Of course I raved about your room.)

Have a great week!

Good luck getting back to real life today. Even though I'm not working yet, it's hard to break from vacation mode. Though I miss you and Fred very much, I'm sure your employees and clients are happy to have you back. Have a great day!

It is a cruel world of responsibility, and I always need a day to recover from vacation. Weird. Weird weird weird. Good luck with real life! Love you!

Hello, my friend...I've missed you!

I want to see a picture of you actually wearing those tennies...
I can't imagine you in them...

Glad that you had some time off!
Anne of Green Gables is by far one of my favorite movies of all time...

I often wish that she was a real person and we could have been friends...I'm dying to visit Prince Edward Island...have you been?

Stay tuned, Shannon, because I think I actually got a picture of Susan wearing those tennis shoes--a rare sight, indeed!

Real life. *sigh*
