Tomorrow I am leaving for vacation!!! First stop is my BFF's house. Noreen lives in Hermosa Bach, CA. While not a big fan of southern California, I am a big fan of Noreen. We have known each other since I was 16 and we always have a great time together.
I am also going to visit my cousin Bill while out there. He and his wife just bought a house in Canoga Park, CA. It will be exciting to visit them.
Then I am off to one of my most favorite places on Earth - Bainbridge Island, WA. My Dad is going to be 70! I will be riding this lovely ferry over from Seattle to Bainbridge Island. I cannot tell you how much I love to ride the ferry. It is a zen experience for sure! Mike is going to meet me there later in the week. I will be away for a good amount of time. Not returning to the Land of Lincoln until April 24th!
I will miss you all but will be checking in from time to time on my Iphone! Thank goodness for that great technology! Will report back here upon my return!
p.s. There are no cross stitch shops (that I know of) in L.A. or Seattle!!!!! Let me know if I am wrong.... would love to visit one!!!!!
EDITED TO ADD: Thank you so much for all of the suggestions!!!!!!! I am going to try to get to the shop in Garden Grove and I would love to go to the shop in Ana Cortes. Have to see how far from my Dad's that is. Woooop! I will let you all know if I get anywhere! Thank you for all of your well wishes too!!!!
