Lucky ME!

Lucky ME, I'm visiting my little sister in Michigan this week, while handsome hubby is on an elk hunting trip in Colorada!  The White family welcomed me with open arms at the front door of their gorgeous home.
While they are at work or school each day, I have the mansion to myself!  A nice "little" retreat for rest and relaxation, with a huge backyard full of fall foliage, colorful flowers, and the sound of a real waterfall trickling, in one corner of the yard.
So... its just ME and Scooter (the family pet),  enjoying these precious moments in Michigan and that is a BLESSING indeed!

Hi Nancy! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I was born and raised in Brevard and lived in Franklin for 20 something years. My Mother lived in Asheville till she passed away. I have lots of relatives till in that area and go as often as I can. Nice to know another NC tarheel!

Peggy~ thanks for stopping by and I hope you will come back for a visit sometime.

My high school, West Henderson High, played Brevard High in football, back in the late 60's, when I was in high school. I grew up in Hendersonville and my mom still lives there. I moved to Rutherfodton after college, when I married my college sweetheart!

I also worked at DuPont, in Brevard, during my college summers to help pay for college.

It is a small world and I feel blessed to have a fellow tarheel stopping by!

Wow...that looks wonderful, Nancy! What a relaxing, elegant retreat!
Enjoy!!!

(You haven't been showing up in my bloglines lately, so it takes me awhile to visit you these days, that is part of the reason!)

Linda~ You summed it up perfectly... and it continues to be a blessing each day!

Tammy~ I really need to sign up for bloglines for all of my favorites. I'm a slow learner and just haven't invested the time yet. Im just delighted to have you stop by at any point.

I'm enjoying every minute of my "retreat". We even saw a movie today, after baby sister finished with work! FUN! FUN! FUN!

Welcome back to Michigan! Looks like you got here right when we were in the middle of our "indian summer". The weather is getting cold again, but it was such a beautiful weekend. I hope you are having a very relaxing time with your sister. :)

Cris, Sandy and Hilary~ It was a grand time and before I left... it turned cooler with a high in the mid 50's! That's a winter day in NC but it was so refreshing. Blessings to you all and thanks for stopping by!
