My Favorite Things - Road Trip

Last month I flew to Florida to visit my Mum.  On a whim, I checked the map and it turned out I wasthisclose to the MFT store!  I couldn't pass up the opportunity, so told Mum we were taking a road trip.  And what a road trip it was - no GPS just a MAP :) and my Mum navigating!  We set off and 1.5 hours later we pulled up and I was almost beside myself with excitement.  I kept telling my Mum that Kim was going to be there and I was so excited - I'd get to meet her in person and I was so excited - I was going to see the store in all it's beauty and I was so excited - and I'd get to shop, shop, shop and I was so excited - do you get my drift?  I'm not sure Mum got my excitement level but I'm sure you all do - it was a day to remember!  The store was everything I thought it would be and more.  Kim was so sweet and welcoming and I hope I didn't overwhelm her with my excitement.


Her hubby, Martin, took this photo and man does he know his MFT stuff!  I was just wandering the store in a MFT daze when a lady walked in wondering what these stamps were, how did it work, etc., and he was amazing explaining it all to her.  It was all I could do to not go over to the lady and profess my love of MFT and tell her to buy one of everything!  I left there a VERY happy stamper with loads of goodies that I am slowly working my way through.  It was a wonderful day and a road trip to remember.  I love this next photo - me and My Favorite Things!
