A Great Weekend of Futzing With Family

I really "took off" this weekend and just played with family. My younger step-daughter, Margy, came from Austin, TX to attend the Woman of the Year banquet Friday night with her older sister, Adena,  my amazing husband, Larkin and me. We were joined by friends Lindsay LaFevers Archer and Debbie Yoeckel. It was a fun night and a relaxed weekend of getting caught up on family news and just futzing around.

Now I just face a mountain of emails to answer, mail to respond to, a couple quick projects to get done, a video interview,  3-hour Bible Study class, and packing before I take off for blog World 2010 in Las Vegas!! Yikes.
