I can’t wait to recap my trip for you…but in the meantime, be sure to follow along on Instagram and Twitter for a sneak peek
Not to worry though, I’ve still got Bean Bytes to share with you guys!

Join me THIS Thursday, September 12th for the 3rd Pin It Party! It’s been a few months since I hosted one so I figured it was time! In case you missed the last one, here’s the basic idea:
All bloggers are welcome to participate! Here’s what you do:
- Round up 5 blog posts you’ve written that you would like to see on Pinterest.
- Make sure there is a nice, pinable image or photo included in each post.
- Write a short post featuring the posts you chose- ie, put 5 nice images & links to the posts all in one place, along with a short description of each post.
- On Thursday, publish your post, then visit The Bean and add your post to the linkup!
You can check out my post from Pin It Party #2 for an example! Hope you’ll join me
That’s all for today!
P.S. Today and tomorrow I’ll also be thinking of my hubby and family back in Ohio as they celebrate the life of this beautiful lady:
Hubby’s grandma passed away on Friday. His grandparents are wonderful people who have treated me like their own grandchild for the past 10 years. Grandma Ethel will be greatly missed!
