Happy Friday!

Good Morning everyone!

It is hot and sticky here in Upstate NY..I love the heat, but when you wake up sweating, I would say that it is too much! The last week has been super busy, we had our first ever Havens Family Reunion last Saturday and it took 3 days to just set up for it but it is worth it. Everyone had a wonderful time even though the temp that day was 90!! Thank goodness there was a pool! Here are some pics of the reunion..we had a Hawiian theme and everyone came ready!!

My stores have been doing so GREAT this week and sales are awesome! Hope it stays this way for me and everyone else.

Don't forget to go to Kim's Country Cottage blog for her last summer time giveaway: winner will be annouced Sept. 1.

Wishing everyone a blessed and cool day!
