part 2

Day two of the trip consisted of driving to Springfield,
surprising Erin at work on her birthday :)

Then back to RVA for the RVA mask party:

and an amazing surprise from my amazing husband :)
Apparently he and Elsie had been conspiring to surprise me with my most favorite painting ever!!! I had thought that it was sold a couple of weeks ago and was really sad about it. I was beyond surprised when Elsie made her special announcement and brought this out FOR ME!!

After the RVA party, we went back to the hotel for crafting, laughing, talking, and sleeping :)

oh goodness :) I am smiling sooooo much just remembering all of this and looking through the pictures :)
I am soooo blessed.
I love all of you girls!!
