I <3 a Fall Weekend!

As you know this past week was my anniversary.  Typically we are on vacation that week, but this year I had some work obligations pop-up and I couldn't take off.  So Bill and I planned our outing we do every year for this past Saturday.  We took a drive to Thurmont, MD to check out Cunningham Falls.  The park was beautiful this time of year.  We stopped and ate at the Cozy Restaurant, the oldest in the state of Maryland.  The food was amazing.  I wish I had taken my camera in! 

Thurmont 043-snall

This was my first try at dreamy water.  What do we think?  I need to practice more with my shutter speed, it was really fun.

Thurmont 133-small

Later we took a ride to Emmittsburg Antique Mall. I scored BIG time!


5 bucks!  This isn't even all of it.  I was so thrilled!


Can you say super score?  20 dollars!  I can't wait to tackle this bad boy!  It must have been the week for scores.  I scored this cutie for my bestie Mandy.


last score, sweet potato cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.  hello lover.


I am so happy fall is here.  Next weekend I am teaching my first class at Photo Scraps in Eldersburg.  There are two spots left for the paper wreath class and one spot for the ornament class on the 30th.  I will be following up a second wreath class on Dec 4th.  I look forward to seeing everyone there who is coming out to join in the fun!

Happy Anniversary

Three years ago today was the day I wanted to have my wedding on.  I was informed that if you get married on a Sunday in Las Vegas instead of Saturday it was half the price.  My inner tight wad rejoiced.  Today will always be my anniversary in my heart, even though tomorrow is the day we did the deed!

Happy Anniversary Stud, love you!
