Beaten by Travels...

I am back from the cold windy Southern California to find that DH had to dig into the boxes labeled "Summer 2012" for clothes for the kids this past week!  I am bound and determined to enjoy our lovely weather by sleeping it away... lol.

I am so so so tired from attending a conference for work. 6.5 hours of sessions every day and nightly events to attend.  The hotel was really clean but noisy and uncomfortable.  The result is a completely wiped out me!  I will recover and resume my regular blogging reading and posting. Meanwhile, I see this was the layout Jillibean Soup had shared last Tuesday and so I can post it now.

These photos were taken last October when we had a few warm days!  I don't think we will be going to the apple orchard this year because we have harvested plenty apples from our own yard this year!
Here are a couple of close-up photos. I think I rather enjoyed playing with the circular elements on this layout. And can this collection be more perfect for my theme? :)

A short post for tonight as I'm headed to zzzland...  Have a wonderful day!

This is so darn cute!! I love the expression on her face!! Apple picking last weekend, with a TON of apples for applesauce and apple crisp, if my kids don't eat them all first. Hope you are able to recoup from your business trip!

Cold and windy in SoCal? Bummer! Well, you should be warming up now that you're back. We wore shorts and tee shirts to the corn maze today. :)

I am late on commenting..hopefully buy now you are all back to normal. Traveling does wear you out, especially the hotel is noisy! I adore the photos!! You are amazing in capturing those apple-picking moments! Wish I had/have skills like yours! PS: Made too many spelling errors. Must go to bed now :)
