Around the World in 10 Days: Life in Review

I have had a whirlwind 10 days.  It has been terrific in all stops. I went to Naples on a much needed Girls weekend to New York for Blogfest 2013 and many meetings, back home for work and away to out mountain cottage in Linville, NC. I am exhausted and exhilarated all at the same time!

      I missed you in NYC! I was tweeting you looking for you…I eventually figured it out:)
      As for the House Beautiful pic…I took a picture from the magazine. They forgot you sadly! You should email them.
      I am glad you are busy. I am going to email you for a feature this week. I cannot wait to share my AMAZING portrait of Waffles.
