Relax: Yeah I’m About To Steal This Sign

LOVE this sign.  NEED THIS SIGN.

It’s just one of many you will find walking around the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls. I’m having a wonderful time so far in Hocking Hills but my arrival has been one big test after the other.

My foundations opened up during flight and spilled all over 3 pairs of shoes that CANNOT be cleaned. My rainboots are fine on the outside… but INSIDE is a whole different story. My suede black boots – DONE. And my sneakers are…well I don’t really care about my sneakers if I’m being honest with you.

When I saw this sign though it made me smile a bit. Relax – it’s not the end of the world right? If I look at it in a positive way… it means I get to go shopping for a new pair of black knee highs, right?! 🙂

Last night we were walked through a beer and wine tasting event. The owner of RockMill Brewery was kind enough to teach us a bit about his beer line and I kept thinking about my husband. He is a BEER FREAK! I am going to see if I can bring one of his bottles home with me on the plane. Not sure if that is legal or not!

I even had a sip in honor of Bill.

The night ended with a blackberry cobbler I would now officially kill for. I mean OUT OF CONTROL. Right now I’m heading down to breakfast and cannot wait to see what they cooked for us.

Until tomorrow!!

    So sorry about your boots! That totally sucks. But, it could’ve been so much worse had it been your entire suitcase of clothes, etc. I always double bag my makeup just in case, because I totally have “that kind” of luck.
