Tales of the Traveling Totes # 6 ~ The Adventures Continue


Tales of the Traveling Totes #6

Welcome!




Miss Merri Mac has rapidly become a

Best Friend Forever,

especially as a travel buddy to share adventures.





In early January I woke to find that

Miss Merri Mac had taken up 

with a unicorn ~ a Rainbow Unicorn?





I quickly realized these two were

rarin' to go to Miss Annabelle's 6th birthday party.

Rainbow Unicorn Party!





Yes, it was a colorful event

and Miss Merri Mac was excited to deliver her 

new found friend to one happy little girl.





It's wasn't long after that my BFF and I were

off on a long weekend adventure to 

Los Angeles with girlfriends.





The mission was to search for a wedding dress

for a beautiful young woman who is 

getting married in August.





Our days were filled with the task at hand,

though we did manage to work in a tour of the Getty Villa,

window shopping on Rodeo Drive, and

dinner at the Beverly Wilshire.






One night we took in the sights and

sounds at Santa Monica Pier.





Another evening we enjoyed a quiet dinner by 

a cozy fire dock side in Marina Del Rey.





With lingering thoughts of love and romance 

after the wedding dress adventure,

Miss Merri Mac was in the Valentine mood.





Our most recent adventure was just a three hour drive north.

Miss Merri Mac and I traveled to Dallas 

where we were welcomed in splendid French style.





A delightful week spent with friends

from both the east and west coasts and Canada

who flew in to join us Texas girls  

for a mini reunion.
