Haven 2012 was awesome. I enjoyed every second of it. Some of my favorite moments were meeting Miss Mustard Seed and sitting in on two of her classes, Advanced Painting and Hobby to Business. She was amazing. I also got to meet my Instagram friend Ashley of The Handmade Home. Ashley and I have never meet but I feel like we are long lost friends just from watching her life though Instagram. Have I told you how much I love instagram!?!? Have I told you how much I love Ashley Mills? Check out her blog, she is amazing! I also loveddddddd spending time with my roomie and friend the Nester. I knew we had a lot in common but never did I realize just how much we are alike.
Nester and I live 4 hours away from Atlanta, however it took us almost 8 hours to get home. Why you ask….. because we got a little wild and crazy!!! We stopped at any and every thrift store, Goodwill, Habitat Store, and Salvation Army we came across. At one point we actually got off interstate 85 and took the back roads to Anderson, South Carolina for over an hour. It was so beautiful out in the country and I felt totally spontaneous and free for the first time in a long time. It was probably the most fun I have had in a while. Not having a clue where we were going, stopping anywhere we wanted, and not having to worry about time.
It was fabulous.
