Back from vacation!
It has surely been quite some time since I've blogged. One of the major reasons I haven't was a two-week vacation out West. Our primary reason for the visit was to spend time with our daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren out there -- one of them a seven-month-old baby girl we had never yet met. So we didn't intend to do much actual sightseeing on this vacation. Our focus was to be on spending time with our family and helping them out where we could.
Still, some sightseeing was done on each end of the trip as we flew in and out of Salt Lake City, several hours from our daughter and son-in-law's home. The photo above shows a fall display at Gardner Village, a fantastic assemblage of shops converted from old buildings moved to the site. Of the shops, my favorite was a quilting/needlework shop called Pine Needles.
I'll be back in the coming days to share more about our trip.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
