Evening in the Country...

Evening in the Country...
...a gorgeous view of the WV mountains I get to enjoy everyday. Also the place Bri proposed earlier this year! [Not taken on that day.]

18 Days

On the 21st of March I will be 24. That is one year from being 25. 25 is a fourth of a century. In one year and eighteen days I will be one-fourth of a century old - better than half a century...I guess.

To celebrate another year of living Brian and I will be traveling to Columbus to visit several places: Sew 2 Speak, Pattycake, Tip Top, Northstar, Easton Mall, Jo-Ann Superstore, Shadowbox, Stitching Post, Museum of Art (Egyptian Treasures exhibition), and the Franklin Park Conservatory...to name a few! I have a room waiting for us in Clintonville and many things on my list! I will be taking Friday off from work (woohoo!!) and traveling in the morning - at least I hope I wake up early enough to travel in the morning.

Unfortunately, the Pattern Review contest I entered failed...for me. I entered my listing at 11:33 P.M. EST but the listing never appeared on the voting list. I'm not sure what had happened - I did contact the administrator and have yet to hear a word. All that hard work - 9 1/2 hours on Saturday - wasted. Gone. Forever. I am past being angry and my feels are only hurt - I guess now is the time to write some poetry and call it a day.

Sounds like a great trip.. I love the Easton Mall.. You should eat at Brio.. great Italian food in a beautiful setting..
{and I mean beautiful.. I love every inch of the decor there.. you must promise me you will look at all of it..even the bathroom!}
You may also want to check out a few shops..
They're called "Plato's Closet". Second hand stores but they carry great pieces.. Tiff got a brand new pair of Bananna Republic leather boots there once for I think $20! They have things for men and women so Brian won't be too miserable... ;) I don't know how he is about shopping but I know Brad loathes and despises it.. unless it's for fishing supplies! LOL Happy early birthday old lady! Kidding.. if it makes you feel better.. I am always 5 years closer to a century..
