Hi there. I'm back.

Back from a weekend I never wanted to see end.  From a fantastic night in San Francisco, spent with very special friends that I haven't seen in a very long time.  [hi pauline! xo, hi noreen! xo] Back from Carmel, Ca, where a surprise anniversary party for my parents took place.  Where the surprised look on their faces will be forever etched into my mind.  Where tears were shed, and laughs were abundant.  Where I snuck a little photo shoot in for my knitting blog.  (More on that later.)  Where the time spent with family was so special I almost burst when I think about it.  Seriously.
I will be back soon....after I finish wallowing in the post party blues.  I just hate post party blues.

    In the meantime, grab some knitting, chocolate and a cup of tea. Surefire remedy for the post-party blues!
