We woke up to this beautiful sight on December 26 th.
Now I know 6 inches of snow is not that out of the ordinary for Christmas, after all I did grow up in Chicago, Illinois, but I live in Georgia now. Georgia has only had snow at Christmas 3 times in the past 120 years !!!
Our family plans to leave at 7 am for a much needed R&R to Florida was delayed by 5 hours so that the roads would melt some. The south is just not stocked with all the equipment necessary to clear roads during a heavy snow or ice storm. Anyway we did get going, my daughter and her family waited a bit later to leave so my 2 granddaughters could go sledding and play in the snow some. We had a wonderful family vacation at the beach, just resting and eating, LOL, and a little shopping, for a whole week.
Now back home, I am finally winding down the closing of my Children's Boutique brick & mortar store. My doors will be locked on February 24 th for good. I will really miss seeing all the little ones that I have dressed over the years, and the direct interaction with the people that visited my store.
I won't be giving it up completely though. I plan to continue doing custom sewing, selling on Etsy & Ebay, and occasionally doing a craft festival. I am looking forward to more free time and not having such a structured schedule of running a store.
New Beginnings in the New Year !!!
Best Wishes For a Glorious 2011,
