I neglected to mention that we are traveling until December 12th. Lucky me, my husband has to go to Chicago several times a year and I get to tag along - this is especially nice before Christmas! Our cousins Kelly and Rick joined us for the first leg of the trip... there was much visiting, laughter and shopping. We have been enjoying great visits with friends and business associates, lucky for us again, they are one and the same.
We are soon moving on to the warm climate of Arizona for a few days. I promise to check in if I get a minute. On with the shopping!
