Show and Tell...On the way to Williamsburg VIA NC

The Make Mine Pink Retreat in Williamsburg, VA was over the top with information, meeting new friends, and goodies!!! Words can not describe all the wonderful things that went on every minute. Joyce Lucas and her family are absolutely the most wonderful folks you will ever meet.

I left on Tuesday to head to North GA to meet my ride, Dianne. We became instant buddies and earned the nick names of Thelma and Louise..Brad Pitt and all!!! We took our time on the journey to Virginia and made some new friends along the way. One of the towns we had many adventures in was Salisbury, NC. Here are a few pictures of the most darling General Store we shopped in.

Oh, you want to hear the rest of the story??? Well let's just say..."What happens in Salisbury, stays in Salisbury" As we journeyed back home through North Carolina, we did notice that there were no billboards with our pics on them!!! Whew...LOL

Enjoy life,
