The whirlwind tour, 2010

Hubs and I just got home from a 2 week vacation, traveling through 7 states - meeting so many great folks and seeing some wonderful spots along the way.
I'll be sharing some pictures with you of our grand time
over the course of the next few days.
The first stop took us to Greenville, SC to visit a girl who I consider to be as close to my daughter. Michelle and I met when she was 11 years old - and we formed an instant bond. That bond is even stronger today, and she is now married with a baby of her own.
This is the home of Ross and Michelle, with their baby daughter Ella and other "baby", Gus.


Here are a few shots of their beautiful home ...
I couldn't pick my favorite spot if I tried!




Ross is a very talented and gifted artist and their home is adorned
with many of his works. It's amazing!







Sweet Ella and me - taken through a mirror by hubs ♥



On Thursday morning, Ross and Michelle took us to the Coffee Underground - after having breakfast there, I can see why this is one of their favorite hangouts!




This was in the ladies powder room at the Coffee Underground... just had to get a picture of the artisan's metal works!




Downtown Greenville, SC ... loved it! I must return soon :)




On main street in Greenville - there is a story about the Mice on Main... they are hidden all along the street and you must try to find them!


From downtown Greenville, we headed over to the zoo - and hitched a ride on the bear.


We only had 1 1/2 days with our dear sweet adopted family - and I do hope we get to return next summer for a longer visit. One day just isn't enough!
