I am leaving for Southern California at 5am tomorrow (Thursday, Jan 10th) and my sweet friend Anna, from MyFlowerBed has planned a DAY IN TEMECULA for us to meet up with THE SWEET GALS from that area. IF YOU ARE CLOSE TO THIS AREA, I WOULD LOVE TO MEET YOU. PLEASE PLEASE see what you can do as life is so short and after all I have been thru, it will be such an awesome day to meet, eat and visit with all of you. Of course, I will have my digital camera with me so I will be taking lots of pictures. And, YOU WILL KNOW IT'S ME WITH, I'm the TALL ONE (six foot tall) with NO HAIR....LOL

Please meet us on MONDAY, JANUARY 14th at 11:30am at The Bank of Mexican Food Restaurant (just click on the link for the address, directions and full menu) for a GIRLS DAY of LUNCH FUN!!!

I have not yet packed for myself or Maddi (she is going to Grandma's while I am gone) and I have so much left to do that I have to shut my computer down. I will check my email from time to time while I am in Southern California, but please understand if I don't get back to you until I am home, it's only because I am busy having A BLAST!!! I plan on bringing lots of treasures home from California and will be posting all new goodies on the website the weekend of the 20th. HERE'S TO A CALIFORNIA TRIP that I was suppose to go on the week I found the lump in my breast!!! THIS WILL BE THE BEST EVER!!!! Just think, I AM ALIVE to be able to go....that in itself is AMAZING GRACE!!!

All my Love, Amy

ARLENE of not only donated one website but TWO of them to Mary. WOW WEE!!! If ANY of you are considering a website business, ARLENE is AWESOME to work with and her prices are so reasonable....just think, OWNING YOUR OWN RETAIL WEBSITE!!! It doesn't get any better than that. (just so you know, my software alone to build a website was almost $200, then I had to figure it out, and then I had to build my website. If only I had known about Arlene 5 years ago)
PLEASE EMAIL ME if you have a donated auction on ebay, etsy or your blog for Mary...I want to get your links out there to everyone. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! AMY)
