It’s 7:30 am Saturday and the early birds have arrived. I think this happy group was from Jackson, Mississippi (correct me girls) and they were fired up about meeting
By 8:00 every golf cart we could get our hands on was called into service as a taxi to shuttle people from the town square parking. Chapel parking was full.
The line was now wrapped around the building and extended to the soccer field.
They came from near and far.
Every age bracket was represented.
I was the favorite person around for a short moment when I surprised the early birds with a hug from Marian (Miss Mustardseed).
Chapel Market!! Let the games begin.
These Urban Farmgirls came all the way from Illinois.
How cute is THAT? You rock Evan Cooper.
And you made these little cuties happy with their sunflowers, too.
Meanwhile, Heather and Lucy kept up a steady pace in the Southern Accents booth. I heard a rumor that Heather even sold their cash register. LOL.
Mary Kay Andrews was here signing her latest book, Christmas Bliss, and she broke a record according to Books A Million.
I totally agree with this.
At the end of a long day we began the happy/sad goodbyes as new friendships had been forged and new dreams shared.
Many of you are close enough to visit Shauna’s lovely shop in Troy, Alabama:
Perfectly Imperfect. She is your go-to source for Annie Sloan Chalk Paints and Miss Mustardseed’s Milk Paint.
This “letter” in Karianne’s typewriter sums up my emotions from the weekend.
Love you guys to the moon and back.
