We left South Florida early last Friday and stopped to lunch with our younger daughter Kaely, who is a junior at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Lots of Deja Vu moments whenever we are there, as that is our alma mater as well~although we did not know each~other in our college days. Kaely is so excited, as she just found out that she is going to be doing a short semester abroad in Spain and Greece after the Spring Semester! This coming weekend we will be meeting Kaely and our older daughter Kira (with her boyfriend Kenny) up in Orlando (where Kira is a senior at UCF)....as our Kaely is turning 21 and wants to do a family thing in Epcot before the wild ritual 21 partying with her friends ensues! November will be a busy month for us......not a single weekend at home, so I will have to cram alot in to the weekdays.
Back to our trip, we then headed up to North Carolina and drove through the beautiful mountains west to east.....where we have been many times. We have not had the opportunity to visit the Fall color though until this trip.....and it was gorgeous! I had so much fun taking photos with the new camera.....and so as not to bore, will post just a few on the Blog~since I received quite a few email requests (thanks:-). Our favorite part of N.C. is the Blowing Rock, Boone area, where Mr. Shabbyfufu's parents had gone for years in the summer, so we know it quite well. It was COLD in the mornings....at least for us Floridians, with temps in the 20's, but then warming nicely with the sunshine during the day.
We then headed down the mountains and I did lots of website shopping at antique shows, with dealer friends that I have made over the years, and at some fave haunts. I found lots of lovely treasures.....and will be posting on the website at Shabbyfufu as time permits~all through the Holiday Season.
Off to do some unpacking of boxes now, it's going to be like Christmas around here today!
Lots of love to all~ Janet at Shabbyfufu
