here, there, and back in under 48 hours ... SAFF 2015

this was the weekend that i wait for all year long ... my birthday? no! SAFF weekend !!!

it's a blitz of a weekend ... work late the night before, drive 'home' a few hours, stay up late and head up the mountain the next morning. ♥ love it ♥

why do i love it so much? yarn-fest. and fiber-fest. and just fun. a day (mostly) i can spend with mom without any other distractions or responsibilities.

so, this is how it goes ... (phone convo) ....

me: don't make me late.
mom: i never make you late.
me: we HAVE to leave the house by ____ am (insert ridiculous morning hour here).
mom: i have responsibilities in the morning.
me: YOU'VE KNOWN ABOUT THIS SINCE LAST YEAR !

this is typical.

so the journey begins .......

SAFF 2015

it's dark! really? did i forget that from last year or did i demand to leave super-early?!

i think i demanded to leave as early as possible, expecting that some obstacle would come up and we'd roll into the venue later than i preferred.

mom really wants me to take pictures (that's my duty for not driving). but, i already drove 3 hours the night before, and she really doesn't want me to drive. although i have a camera in my bag, i take lazy iphone photos.

as the sun starts to rise, i get to see all the colors i missed the night before driving in darkness. it's autumn in the state.

and it's been overcast and rainy ... but stayed cloudy and dry while at SAFF.

and finally, after a greasy bojangles breakfast, we arrive!!! what a plain sign compared to years past ..... but, that is a GOOD thing!

i take a quick map/photo just in case we forget where we parked (entering through gate 7 and the venue spaces are different for us this year).
