Off to Amelia Island..

Back to the airport again for a quick flight to Amelia Island for Memorial Day weekend to visit my parents. I decided to keep my blood pressure low and check my new bag that caused so many problems last weekend. I got to the airport on time and was so annoyed that they are now charging $15 for the first bag! Holy cow. I DO not understand how they think this will do anything but cause more airport problems. People don't want to (or can't) pay the extra fees so they are all trying to bring their bags on board...there is not enought overhead room to accomodate all these bags, what a nightmare! Then I thought, how stupid to pay the money for my bag, I should just try to get in on the plane and then if they want to rip it from my grip like they did at LGA on Monday, I won't have to pay the fee!

Anyway, when I landed and got into the terminal, I could not believe how many cute guys there were walking around. There might be a better chance of me meeting my future husband in this airport than going out in Miami. I am not kidding!

My Mom picked me up and and took me to lunch at T-Rays, this adorable local restaurant in an old gas station, delicious breakfast and burgers and then to see the new house. They are hoping to move in June, it really went up fast. I got to see my Dad and then home to see Millie. She was so cute and as happy to see me as I was her.

After the Stationery Show, I was thinking some of the things I bought might be on the way sooner rather than later, and I was right! I got a shipment notice from Lifeguard Press, the distributors of Lilly Pulitzer paper. I ordered the green stand up book with personalized notes, labels and calling cards. I am so excited to get my hands on it.

I read online that Mrs. John L. Strong is closing! That makes me so sad, but in this economy, I am sure their business was S-L-O-W! Feeling very lucky, my business is booming these days! I got an order for 54 crystal necklaces last week and am making them right now. The Bethenny necklaces are selling great as well. They really are so pretty and perfect to spice up any summer outfit.

Last, but not least, thank you so much for DMLD for bestowing an award on my blog. I feel very honored that so many people click onto Summer in Newport and actually read what I have to say! It is so fun! xoxo
