Home Sweet Home!

What a wonderful, crazy week we have had.  A week ago today we unloaded paintings and then enjoying a nice afternoon poolside at The Sanctuary on Kiawah Island.  What an incredible place, we felt so blessed to be there!  That evening I did a painting demonstration for The Wells Gallery "Art Uncorked" event in the resort.  I had a great evening talking with, and meeting people from all over the country.  Mary Ellen got the "furthest drive award" and I was so glad she came and we got to talk a bit! Thanks to Hume, Emily, Kelly and the staff of The Sanctuary for a wonderful time.  After the show, we headed north again so we could make it home for our youngest son Ty's last football game of the season Friday night. (They won!)  Saturday was a day filled with family, friends, amazing food and some Halloween fun!  We started off the day with a quick visit with our oldest daughter, Cat, who had just driven in from NYC for a wedding and my fathers' 86th birthday party.  We then went to see oldest son, Connor, at ONU for lunch, drove on to Heidelberg Univ. to see our second oldest daughter, Kaleigh, play is the high schools' district volleyball game (they lost :(.. ) and continued on to The Culinary Vegetable Institute where we changed into American Gothic zombies and enjoyed an amazing meal prepared by Executive Chef Tony Dee of Eddie Merlot's for their October Earth to Table event. On Sunday we celebrated my dad's 86th in style with family and friends and tons more good food as Chef Tony and his lovely fiance', Kacey, came and stayed a day with us before heading back to Indianapolis to finish packing to move to Chicago this week.  His parents, our dear friends, Vicky and Dave, finally made it home to Virginia Beach through Hurricane Sandy yesterday, just a day or two later than they had planned. Cat and her boyfriend, Nick, made it home Sunday evening/Monday morning deciding to ride out their second NYC hurricane in their apartment with their cats on the upper east side.  Phew! So glad everyone is home safe and sound! Such a good week, but I have to admit that I am still catching up on sleep!
