back home again.....

back home again, so very difficult to leave sweet Madisyn behind......


contentment

look at Mommy, new baby only days old and she's stitching away while Madisyn naps.....



we stopped at a few antique shops on our way back to the St Louis Airport, grabbed as many fun treasures I could fit into my suitcase.....



arrived home last night, up early doing laundry, then off to Country Loft for their Autumn Open House, found some more goodies there.....





excited to start decorating the house for fall......
