Weekend in the Mountains - Gatlinburg TN

So as I have said my Kiddos are getting ready to fly the coup and I believe the Hubby might be a bit concerned about how all these changes are going to affect things around the house. 

So as a preemptive strike he decided we needed to take a trip to Gatlinburg TN for a weekend in the mountains.  He even got a lovely new camera so I could takes some pictures.  I think he is mounting a distract and confuse game plan.  He knows I will be busy the month of October with work, November will be busy getting ready for our trip to England, December is filled with holiday stuff and then he will be left alone for the first couple months of the year as I will be consumed with Year End and 1st Quarter reporting. So if he distracts me with a new camera he should be able to keep himself out of trouble until October.

Here are a couple of the pictures from this weekend.  I must admit I really like the new camera.  :)

I really like the close up option - The butterfly pictures are my favorite.

The Year in Review

I know it may seem a bit early to do a blog post called The Year in Review however, my lack of blog activity is merely a sign of a year going way to fast for this mere mortal to comprehend. I am still in shock that it is August and the last few days of my life as a 24hr MOM!! are quickly coming to a close.

Here is a bit of what this year has been like so far.



I know I have implied that I have done nothing but work which is not entirely true, but work sure has taken up most of the this year.  I did get away for a MESA retreat in May which was lovely. My Past Life Regression practice has been active and as always incredibly enlightening.  However a scan through my phone pictures lets me know I did do a few other things this year.

Like the  annual Ren Fest trip

A night at Eddie's Attic

 I made some Puerto Rican Lasagna - Pinon

I bit of pool lounging

I got to play cab service to the hospital so this adorable little girl could make her way into the world :)

The Train Concert 

I was privileged to see this sight - A car with its very own Rainbow in the trunk

Reunion of two peas in a pod

And I even managed to paint my favorite picture thus far:

In less than two weeks the youngest will move into her new apartment in the city.  She will be minutes from her new job as a Hostess and Georgia State where she will be going to school.

In about a month the oldest will be heading to the University of Hertfordshire where she will embark on a year of study in the UK (I will be heading there for visit more on that later).

So today in my awareness of times fleeting ways I headed home early to make dinner and  Peach Cobbler from a secret family recipe (modified to be gluten free).
