Just Checking In and a Giveaway from BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH

I'm currently in Maryland visiting family. I'm staying with Mom and have seen my aunt, JoAnne, cousins David and Jeff, and Jeff's twin daughters, Jenna and Jessica.

Then Mom & I drove down to Salisbury (still in Maryland) to see my brothers, Tres (Homer) and Kevin, and their families. I got to visit with sisters-in-law Karen and Mary Jane, nephews & their spouses, Brian & Angey and Michael & Lauren, and nieces Kelly and Katie. Then there were my nephews' children, Owen, Audrey, Lydia and Logan. Logan was only 10 days old when I met him! When we get back to Mom's, I still have to see my cousin Becky & her family, and my sister-in-law Cassie and her boys! Can't wait! I love visiting family; it's so much fun and laughter and filled with love. And I love it up here in Maryland. I forget just how beautiful it is up here, then I visit in autumn (my favorite time of year, especially up here!) and see the beautiful homes and the trees/woods and the mums and pumpkins and cornshocks and it kind of makes my chest hurt just a little, because I realize what I've missed all these years! (sniff, sniff!)

Now, for the really fun stuff! I visited one of the blogs I follow this morning, Between Naps on the Porch and author Susan is hosting a giveaway that is beautiful! (Welcome to the 37th Metamorphosis Monday and a Fall Give-a-Way!) Visit her blog and see the stunning "Give Thanks" autumn tassel that she is giving away, courtesy of Angela, who has an etsy shoppe, The Tassel House. If you visit there, you will find more tassels, for sale! Good luck to you if you enter the giveaway (but I really hope I win!!!) ;)
