When we arrived home . . .

This is what we found. Trees down.

Lots of tomatoes to can and cucumbers too.

A package on the door step.

When I opened it, I saw all these wonderful things. With a candle in there, it all smelled so good. It was a give away from Lori at Mountain Woman at Heart. I am so glad it didn't blow away in the storm. I had my bff pick up my mail at the mail box while we were gone. That box is located about 1/2 mile from my house. Apparently the package wouldn't fit in the mail box. Luckily, we have a very considerate mailman. He stuck it inside a plastic bag and tucked it on the door step.

So you wanna know where I've been? Been in Oklahoma City wedding dress shopping with daughter Sarah. So posts on that will follow after I catch up here!
Stay tuned!

A lovely package to come home too, sorry about the trees though.
Hope your trip was productive and the future bride is pleased.

How exciting to come home to another winning package!

So sad to see the tree loss. Mean mother natue.

I see your weekend will be busy with all of those tomatoes. I hope the weather has cooled down for you.

Downed trees is always heartbreaking - and a lot of work.

Did you find a beautiful dress?

Looks like you got some good stuff. Rural mailmen are the best - ours brings packages to our door too!
