I signed the hotel and two of our great vendors up to be a part of something really great, The LowCountry Orphan Foundation's first annual auction. Each company set up an amazing tablescape with its own theme and then people paid to walk through the ballroom, bid on auction items and enjoy the beautiful table settings. It felt nice to be part of something so good. (And I tried hard to get these pictures to go the right way, but they won't...sorry)

Saturday morning was spent reflecting on where I have been this year and where I want to go. After having a few moments, I pulled myself together, and did a little retail therapy. Then I met my buddy Russo and we both went to church together for the first time in a long time. (Not proud to say that, but you have to start somewhere right?) After church, Hammond and I went to Zen and had some YUMMO sushi and of course, my favorite, a Honey Mango Mojito.
Since we were over at Mt. Pleasant, we hopped over to the new Trader Joe's to see what all the hype was about. It was P-A-C-K-D but a neat store though. I'd like to go back when it isn't swamped with people. I picked up a few things including this delish goat cheese with blueberries. Hello goodnes!!
We came home and decided that we needed to pull out our spring/summer flowers that were barely hanging on and plant some fall flowers.
There isn't much at Home Depot/Lowes that say "Stick me in the shade in your terrible clay soil and I shall bloom" so we went with full sun panseys and some cabbage. I sure hope these little cuties do ok.
