On The Up Side

It all started a little more than a week ago when we ventured out to our historic neighborhood sales. I look forward to it every year. Alley after alley of vintage garages & carriage houses filled with treasures.

If you have followed my blog for very long, you may have noticed that I take a picture from this same spot every year. It's my favorite of all the stops.

We had lunch just outside of a hugenormous (that'a word, right?!) Victorian house. Every window is done in yummy lace.

After lunch we all seemed to tire out so we called it a day and went home to rest.

And a few hours later we had a house full of throwing up people. And it continued for a week!

Ending with my youngest being in the hospital.

So, we're moving a little slow here at the Blessing Farmhouse but we're finally moving again. Slow or not, we're grateful to be getting well. I am playing catch-up with email, shipping orders out and also mailing some of the gifts from the Alice party

On the up side, we had lots of family time!
