Special Visitors...



Hello, 
it has been awhile since I have been here and I have missed all of you. I have not been on blogland in so long and I am sorry I haven't been around to visit! I posted awhile back, all that was happening in my world and it has been a busy spring. This week I have been so fortunate to have my friend Donna at Everyday Elegance come and help me get ready for some amazing visitors.



I am afraid I worked her to the bone! We had much to do to get ready for the fabulous Fifi ONeill and talented Mark Lohman. They have been shooting for book and magazine in this area, the beautiful homes of Polly, Tracey and Jen
My home was also on Mark and Fifi's busy schedule and they were here all day yesterday. 











We were so happy to have them.




We had so much fun with Mark and Fifi's affectionate teasing and sense of humor, we were laughing all day! They were quite the pair and we enjoyed having them in our home.








They worked well together and were amazing.






Donna was such a sweetheart and not only made us her famous grilled chicken pasta dish but brought everything with her to make it!



And of course we had to have French Champagne...











It was a busy day for all of us...
and we all needed a little down time.




We said good-bye to the dynamic duo but not for long...




Thank you Mark and Fifi for a wonderful day.
We will be seeing you soon at the fabulous Nada Farm Event...




Donna and I will be attending the BoHo Ball and looking forward to seeing all our friends
...as soon as we get our outfits together!
I will keep you posted!


Blessings,
Rebecca

  24. Wow girl! You've had all kinds of fun things going on lately! I had forgotten about the photo shoot! Your garden is amazing! I almost didn't recognize Donna, her hair is dark! I wanted to go to NaDa farm so bad, but my daughter's baby shower was the 21st. I'm gonna make it out there one of these days! Good luck on your next trip! I will be thinking about you!
