…on Saturday in Chilliwack and Abbotsford.
Wendy at Winks along with her staff welcomed us with a most beautiful setting for our 2nd book signing of our weekend.
If you haven’t visited her store yet you really need to put it on your list and you won’t be disappointed.
Many books had been pre-sold and were waiting for us to sign so we got busy.
Anneliese’s daughters both played a part in our day here with one sharing cupcakes from her own cupcake business and the other blessing us with her lovely violin serenade.
It was so much fun to meet the “girls” families. Judy’s DIL brought her children to see their grammy. Anneliese’s granddaughter is sitting on the chair watching with interest. I’ll share more in another post of one of my sweetest moments at Winks.
The patio was filled with beautiful flowers.
How Great Thou Art was on my heart and mind all weekend.
Some of us stole away to do a little shopping.
As Anneliese’s daughter played her finale we packed up and headed to our next event.
This is the peaceful drive up to Sweet Dreams Luxury Inn in Abbotsford.
This is where we would wrap up our evening signing books for each other and for our publisher and then having a lovely dinner served to us.
We took some time to take a few more photos donning our new aprons that Julie sewed from material chosen by Lovella and Kathy.
On our way out we noticed that our Betty matched the beautiful flowers that were centerpieces on our tables at dinner.
Another full day complete we headed to our homes and hotels full of good memories of our day. On Sunday we had one more full day starting with a church service.
Today is Tuesday and I’m still trying to get back in my normal groove. Seeing how it’s noon already that groove seems to be escaping me. We started out today in a cloudy pattern instead of our several bright sunny days. The sun is breaking through as I finish this post. Dear has one more full day in San Diego at a conference and I’m looking forward to him coming home tomorrow. Are you looking forward to anything?

Beautiful ladies all! What fun.
What an amazing journey this has been for you all! I remember hearing about the very beginning of the MGCC blog–how far you’ve come.
Another beautiful day…and yes, that signing…I’m not sure if anyone has a photo…Do you?
Well we will cherish that in our hearts for a long time.
What a pleasant post! I really must go into Chilliwack and visit those places. And those aprons are just so pretty!
The details in this day were amazing! From a relaxing morning, to lunch out, a garden party like signing with violin music and sweet cupcakes, special loved ones stopping by, a lovely dinner, and great time with each other.
