The Queen Bee Market in Oceanside was really wonderful.
It was so nice meeting so many kindred spirits and getting
to do what I love, talk about God and share my love for
decorating our homes with scripture.
Getting there was a little stressful, with an accident by LAX,

Cupcake Girl Friday was my next door neighbor.
Not a bad neighbor to have.
And when the day was done, I got to hang with
a childhood bestie for dinner with the sunset.
The fairs, though a lot of work are so very much fun.
And I always walk away feeling so encouraged and with my cup overflowing.
So..here's where you can find me next.
This Saturday at Calvary Westlake
5495 Via Rocas in Agoura Hills
