this is my final post
relating to my trip to atlanta
(arent you glad)
the trip home was much much nicer than the trip there...
or so i thought on the first day...
(yes i was still taking more than one day to drive home..
i was brave, but still a rookie after all)
only in Georgia could you see a giant peach along the highway
blue skies and absolutly gorgeous views...smooth sailing !
fall foliage at it's best
i got a bit of courage..and when i hit my planned stopping point..
i kept going...
ha..should have left well enough alone..it started to pour...
but only about 15 minutes and i stopped and got a hotel
i'm not a glutton for punishment after all
well..one day down..
but this is what i woke up to
not so bad right???
i thought it would burn off,
but fooled me and actually got worse.......
did i mention..i'm not fond of heights either...
what's that i see??? sun???
but not really....fog still up ahead....drat
pretty wild isnt it??
and remember..this is through the mountains..
crazy winding roads
ok....relaxing now...starting to ease up
west virginia...getting closer to home
every time it thought it was done..
it would come again...........
blue skies !!!
and a huge sigh of relief..
i made it !!!
the trip is over..
and although i didnt want to do it..i did..
a big thank you
to everyone who gave me support and told me i could do it..
to nancy for finding me booth help in atlanta
to dee for being my booth help in atlanta
couldnt have done it without you !
and to everyone at country living magazine
and the hard working folks at
for another wonderful event !
and thanks to all of you who will continue
to read this blog even after all this venting on my part !
thank you from the bottom of my heart !
i have to leave this whole exhausting trip with this note:
i really really did not think i could do this. i really really did not think i was capable of it. but i did it..and i am so very glad for the situation which arose that caused me to have to give this a shot, for otherwise, i would NEVER have attempted it. sometimes things happen..even things we think are bad...they happen for a reason we do not understand...but there is a reason..trust me !
i feel so proud of myself, i know it may seem funny to all you drivers out there, but this really was a feat for me. i
dont didnt travel alone.
i feel so empowered by this..really.
if you ever think you cant do something..try it..you may surprise yourself.
in fact i highly recommend it..
you cannot imagine the feeling it leaves you with..
i am woman, hear me roar...
i am strong, i am invincible !
i can do anything !!!
(i know, i know...what a dork !)
just a few days ago..
i was sitting in georgia
where it was sunny and 75 degrees
hmmm..here's my house today.......blah
