Roses, Radishes and a Rendezvous

I have to send out a big thanks to my family for giving me the opportunity  to meet up with Tim for a "date" on Saturday night in D.C.  Everyone chipped in babysitting Ethan so I could leave Saturday morning  and return on Sunday evening.  It started out a little "shaky" as Tim had a difficult time getting to D.C.  I checked into our hotel and headed to my favorite Japanese restaurant for a sushi lunch while I awaited his arrival.  It was such a beautiful day and I so enjoyed the sunshine.  Once Tim arrived,  we made it "out and about" a bit before heading back to dress for dinner.  We headed to the District and I had a wonderful dinner right by the national archives.  We enjoyed the outdoors while dining and I also enjoyed my very first "grown-up" drink, a blood orange Martini.  We enjoyed a tremendously,  relaxing dinner.  After, we traversed around the whole District in search of the "perfect dessert".  Tim had a certain place in mind, but once we finally made it there,  they were closed.  Boo Hoo!:(  That was around 10:30.)   after searching in the District,then a  metro ride back to  Roslyn we ended cabbing up to Clarindon ...and ended up at the Cheesecake factory.  :)  The next morning we brunched at the Ft. Myer Officers' club for brunch then back home!!!:)

This was the first time I had left Ethan, but I knew he was in good hands.  Ethan was an angel and everyone had a great time.  

AND thanks to my sweetie for arranging this wonderful rendezvous.  I had a magical time.:)

Well, I am FINALLY  finding a creative niche.  I LOVE the way my first "friend" turned out, so I made another.  I also made a "vignette" that I hand stitched to a cloth covered back round.  Now, I have a whole "folk town" in the works.  I think I finally found a way to incorporate all my mediums and processes I have been working on for the past few years.  It feels so good that everything seems to be coming together as far as "finding my way" .  I think my blog has really helped in so many aspects.  I have found a support of friends who I LOVE sharing with, a way to "think out loud" about what I am working on, and a way to kind of record and see my progress.  It has also helped that there are so many out in "bloggerland" sharing their lives and creative processes.  

Well, off to find the messes made while blogging!:)
