A few snapshots…

We are home! We really enjoyed our trip, but I have to tell you all that I was a total basket case at times missing Anne so bad! As soon as we got home she ran into my arms and said “I missed you mommy!” Then she proceeded to run to her daddy’s arms and said “I missed you daya!” It was the coolest most wonderful feeling 🙂

Here are a few of the 300+ pictures I took. Now here is a little something you may not know about me…in my former life I was a photographer – with a degree and published and everything… Once upon a time that is. Now I just dabble.  I’m thinking any or all of these would be great inspiration for a quilt.

Butchart Gardens

Butterfly Gardens

Craigdarroch Castle

Governor’s Mansion

I have 300+ photos to go through, but there were some really wonderful ones that will serve as some fabulous quilty inspiration!

How was your week? Don’t forget to go enter the wonderful giveaway from Colonial Needles.
