I’m Back!

Hello everyone! I’m back from my week away…and I’m exhausted! Just some fair warning, this post has nothing to do with sewing (well, there will be some extremely minor fabric references!)

As you can probably guess from the top photo, Mr. Fresh Lemons and I took the kids to Florida for the last week. We started the week here…

where this was our view…

and then we spent the second half of the week here…

and finally, I came home to these…(plants growing in my garden!)

I’m trying *really* hard not to share ALL 167 photos I took with you. Really hard.


We moved back to Chicago from Tampa 2-1/2 years ago and this was our first trip back to Florida. Our first “real” vacation in years. It went so well, the kids had SO much fun, traveled great, giggled almost the entire time. I couldn’t have ask for more.

I have been VERY lucky this week. First, I won an organic solids FQ set from Quilt Home Magazine. Then, when we arrived at our hotel at Disney we found out we were randomly selected for Family of the Day and upgraded to a safari view room! And then I won a Little Apples mini charm pack from Amanda! I mean really, it has been nuts. So we decided to buy a Powerball ticket while in Florida so I’m crossing my fingers that I wake up $120 million dollars richer in the morning. 🙂

I hope everyone had a wonderful week. I feel refreshed and can’t wait to get caught up with my Google Reader and get back to sewing!
