Local attractions...

Here is Monticello...for those of you who will never see it. :) We didn't get to see much of the inside...it was a little confined and Moses doesn't care for those kind of spaces so we saw the foyer aaaannnd that was about it for the inside. So we wandered around the grounds which were in bloom and beautiful!
I love poppies and can't wait to have the right kind of yard to grow them in...
TJ (Thomas Jefferson)grew all of these species himself...you can buy plants that came from his at the gift shop...I have a bunch that I got last year...not surprisingly they grow better than anything else I have. We found it interesting that even though TJ found slavery to be an "abominable crime" in his whole life and death he only freed a small handful of slaves. Hmmm.... I'll take a garden this size please. :)
And no post would be complete without a cute Moses shot, right? Here he is trying on Doug's glasses. :)
Tonight for dinner I made my first calzone! It was SO easy...let me know if you want the recipe. I promise that you can make it too!

Sorry for what I feel like are boring posts lately...I am still crazy busy, trying to get ahead, spend time with family, travel, garden, house stuff, baby stuff, husband stuff, life stuff...I am desperate to play with all my new papers and goodies that I got from New Jersey in APRIL! Not to mention the new Amy Butler goodies that I recently got and haven't touched. :)

sigh...I am not complaining though! I am blessed by all of the business I have and would never have believed that I would have made it this far...about this time last year I was still toying with the idea of opening a shop...wow...a whole year gone by. Maybe we should celebrate my up coming Etsy-versary? Any ideas?
Pin It!
