Happy Hour Time

HAPPY HOUR TIME 
Welcome one, welcome all to Happy Hour Time on a beautiful Friday! I know you all are going to be shocked to hear this, but for the first time in a long time I have to admit that I was not ready for Friday’s arrival quit yet; today is my last day at the beach and a beach vacation never seems long enough! However many exciting holiday things are on the horizon, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and it is almost time to decorate a Christmas tree! So here’s to a wonderful weekend and a short work/school week ahead, time with family and friends, and holiday bliss and blessings to be had! Cheers!

“It was November – the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind – songs in the pines”
~ LM Montgomery
