Little Miss Sweet Tea Goes Coast-to-Coast…

“Little Miss Sweet Tea” is my nickname from an organizing buddy…thanks Sandra. 😉

I left Charlotte this morning for a week long trip to Myrtle Beach.  Raymond and I were enjoying lunch at Hamburger Joes when he said, “Coast to coast in one week!”  I will cheers to that! 🙂

Thank you all so much for the emails, phone calls, messages, and facebook posts about the Los Angeles trip!  It was simply amazing.  I thought I would take some time to share with you the details. 🙂
