As in Harrisonburg, Virginia. I met Clarkson's family two weekends ago and it was fantastic! I think that I want to move to Harrisonburg and buy an old house with a wrap around porch in the middle of town, restore it, and work for the local preservation society when I finish school in Oregon. And hang out with Clarkson's parents. And her aunt and cousin. It would be wonderful. I could drink lemonade and listen to the wonderfulness that is a southern accent. And eat her mother's AMAZING apple pie. And watch The Sound of Music with her dad. Sigh ... that would be the life.

Other traditions for the ladies in the family are to get pedicures and go to the Fashion Gallery ... we did both while I was in town of course. I bought two dresses, a skirt, and a pair of shoes. Who says there isn't good shopping in the country?

Not exactly excited I am taking this picture ... July 2007

I NEVER get my toes painted ... especially not a crazy color ... but aren't they soo pretty?!
This must become a new tradition for me as well!

Clarkson and her family were amazing hosts to me. She even took me by one of the local cemeteries full of beautiful headstones. I enjoyed it immensely of course. Here are just a few shots ... I took many many more.

Oh my goodness! I totally remember you Bethany! You are the cutest! I completely remember you! I actually met someone the other day who reminded me of you. That's so funny. Anyway, thanks for your e-mail address. I'll post my new blog when I put it up. Take Care Bethany! I can't wait to catch up on your blog :)
