I must play and have fun. I am just one of those people that cannot breathe unless I have regular fun!! I like to work hard, but, it is then time to have fun. Shopping, eating, family, being at the beach.....most important thing spending time with my friend, Jesus. I love flea markets, antique markets, craft shows, art shows, farms, concerts, plays, traveling, books and so much more. I am planning a shopping trip to Virginia in May with the girls. Yea....the only guy that is invited is my son, Anthony, he is 18 and loves hip vintage stuff and so does his girlfriend, Tori. I am not sure Anthony will be joining us though on this trip. Again, God Bless.

The Eclectic Cottage, Brevard, NC

Check out my booth, Lady Beatrice, when you are in Brevard, North Carolina. There are many vendors in the shop, and I know you will love it. Also, check out, Gravy, next door, Mayberry's has good eatin' and the bakery in downtown has the best coffee and the baked goods are the best. You could spend a long weekend in Brevard. There is good hiking, waterfalls, shopping, and Steve Martin. God Bless.

St. Augustine Beach, Florida September, 2011

We had a Ortagus/McElroy family reunion. What fun to see everyone. It had been way too long. If you are thinking about planning a family was way worth it. God Bless.
