"Run like the wind Bear"

He was a part of the family and he will be missed. "Run like the wind Bear" is what we called him. The first time Bear-Bear set paw on Folly Beach in Charleston, South Carolina, he took off and ran...he ran like the wind down the open beach to the waters edge. He was a free spirit and a wonderful friend.

Susie & Bear-Bear.
Christmas walk on Edisto Beach 2008.

My sister Susie adopted Bear-Bear at a Farmer's Market in Delaware (2 hours from home) when she was 15 years old. She immediately fell head over heels in love with the funny little guy and didn't think twice about spending all of her babysitting money right then and there (and without asking for my parents permission.) Bear had quite a few adventures with Susie during that first year of his life. My parents, who were hesitant at first, eventually grew to love him as well and Bear-Bear soon became a loving member of the family and a great companion dog.
Me & Bear-Bear just 6 days ago back home in Maryland.

Today is a sad day for my family as Bear-Bear left us early this morning.
February 14, 1999-June 27, 2009.

Goodbye my friend; you will always have a huge place in my heart and
I will always love you dearly.

I'm back and I'm a brunette!!

We just returned from our wonderful vacation visiting our family and are now unpacking and getting settled in. I'm also getting use to my new brunette locks! I thought it would be fun to change my hair color up a bit. Hmmmn...I hope it's not true that blonde's have more fun...I will soon find out. ;)

I'll post photos of our trip on Monday. My sister and her boyfriend are coming over in an hour and I have to get dinner together and make this place fancy FAST!

Thank you ALL so much for your well wishes while we were away! Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend...the last beautiful June weekend of the year...

Maryland Traditions & Thunderstorms

This weekend was a lovely one if you ask me!

We had a Maryland treat right here in Charleston, SC! Steamed blue crabs and ice cold beer! It doesn't get much better than that! (If you are from Maryland or that region...You know exactly what I'm talking about!)

After our feast this happened...

...and it was awesome!

...and then we ran inside to take shelter from the downpour and lightning that filled our beautiful Charleston sky.

So we watched from the patio instead. :)

Seriously, they're just ALL fabulous!

Alright, first things first... I wanted to share my new jewelry cards and tags. As some of you may already know,
I'm always coming up with new ways to package my jewelry so it arrives all pretty and such
and so my customers are extra *extra* happy when they get a package from me. :)
