It’s been a lovely trip---VERY LONG! But every day has been spent with either Texas family, or AZ family or wonderful ladies who I’ve formed friendships with over this wonderful thing called the internet ---all because of “That Thing We Do” ----QUILTING!
Three sweet gals trusted me enough to loan me their precious featherweights while on my journey ---what a gift! Talk about hospitality!
I’ve connected with people I’ve only known via email --- and now I am familiar with their faces, their voices, and their laughter.
I’ve spent a good amount of time with my Brother and his family ---seeing two of my married nieces, meeting one husband I hadn’t met before. OH yes, she made a good choice! How could she not? His first name is HUNTER!
I met my great niece ---the first one I have on the Wilkinson side ---such a cutie with duck down blonde hair and bright blue eyes. ((She loves corn dogs, but only if you take the breading part off first!))
I finally got to see Les Miserables ---and I’m so glad that I got to see it on a Daddy/Daughter date with my dad. Special memories for sure.
I hope to be back next year. It’s my goal to see far-away family at least once a year. It’s not always easy to fit it into such a crazy travel schedule, but it’s important to me.
Right now I’m looking forward to my own bed ---and almost 2 weeks home to catch up again and get back to normal before heading out on the road again.
My studio is waiting!
My hot tub is waiting! ((Oh, hot tub, my weary bones have missed you every evening!))
My family at home is waiting ----
