Every year my little husband and I try to take an anniversary honeymoon trip. It isn't usually anything fancy or far away, but it is a time for us. This year the goal was to go south...ending up at Tamarack to deliver some art on Monday. That was as detailed as the plan got. No reservations or deadlines. An atlas and a tank of gas.
So, Saturday morning we start out. After about 50 miles of lovely windy WV roads through Rowlesburg and Parsons on our way to Thomas, we run into a winter wonderland! Yes, this is April. I LOVE living in a place that you can have snow 6 months out of the year...really.
We spent the night in a tiny little hotel in Hot Springs, VA because we saw a sign on the fence of the Bath County High School, made out of plastic cups stuffed into their chainlink cyclone fence saying, "Bluegrass Music-Tonight". Seemed perfect since my little husband is working hard to learn to play the banjo. They were serving a BBQ and bean soup dinner with homemade brownies! And sweet tea...we were in the south. The food and the music were good and we were home in time to watch the semi final NCAA games! Oh, and it was really spring there already...blooming trees abundant. Look at some of the signs of spring...farms getting ready to burst forth and waterfalls already gushing forth!
All of this travelling about made me happy again that WV is my home.
We headed toward Beckley, took a walk around Tamarack and spent some time getting my artwork ready to sell to them. This prep kind of stuff is my least favorite part of being a crafts person...plus, I still feel a little sad leaving "them" with someone I don't know. I know. I know. Can't help it.
My buyer bought all 5 pieces I took with me. Hope they find good homes.
Mostly, I had a wonderful time with my little husband and it is always fun to go away so you can experience the joy of coming home!
Glad to be home with my little husband! Here's to the next year....
