Home from vacation…

We just returned from a week-long, much needed family vacation, and WOW! We saw some great places, met some wonderful people, and even though we were on-the-go 24/7 and got pretty tired, I’m happy to say we came home and all still love each other! That’s an accomplishment! I wore my pedometer every day to track my steps and easily bypassed the recommended 10,000 per day. Now if I could only do that in real life!

Speaking of real life: the lawn needs to be mowed, there’s laundry to do, mail to sort, newspapers to skim, and lots of e-mail to read and recorded TV shows to watch (or delete). But first, I’m reconnecting with my blog! I’m excited that 7 more people have chosen to “follow” it. When I hit 100 followers, I shared my “Grateful” kit as a freebie. I have a number in mind to do my next “thank you” kit ~ we’ll see how long it takes to get there.

And now a reminder and another challenge:

  • Reminder: get your layouts finished and sent to me by tomorrow (click here for more info). I have several layouts to post once I get permission from the senders, and I’d love to see one from you!
  • Challenge: Over the next few days, I’m going to post pictures from our trip. If you want to guess where that specific photo was taken, leave a comment. If only one person guesses right, they are the automatic winner. More than one – I’ll draw a name and give you a prize. Not sure what yet ~ too tired to figure that out tonight! Here’s the first picture. The right answer is NOT that the picture is a bird ~ I’m looking for the specific U.S. location we were at to get this picture. Unfortunately, this day was very overcast and hazy, but maybe that will make this a little tougher to guess! We’ll see…

As now as Dorothy would say, there’s no place like home!

Boy, I don't have a clue, but I wish I did. Just for fun I will guess Seattle as it rains a lot there and it's a lot bigger then our little town of 3400. LOL

I just sent you an e-mail.

I am looking forward to seeing your vacation photos and I am so glad you had such a good time. I was impressed with all your steps.

Hugs!

Hey, Carole ~ here's another clue: think the opposite side of the country...

My first guess was New York.
