Well Everyone, I'm Home from Silver Bella!

Let's take a stroll  & we'll talk about Old Town as I haven't even taken my (50lb+) suitcase out of the car yet...

Wow, what a weekend. Although I really enjoyed the little "get-a-way", it was rather exhausting & exhilarating at the same time. I come home to find funny comments from my favorite boys (my little brother and my son) on my November 12th post. I have those  boys entirely too spoiled (& I am too) but I do agree that I need to get back to a somewhat "normal" routine...if that even exists.

Back to Omaha...it's a lovely place. I wish I would have had the chance to see more of it. It's so festive for the holidays...

The weather was so-so and the only snowflakes I saw were these...

Okay, let's have a seat...

and just admire the beautiful details of Old Town.

Doesn't this view just make you want to cuddle at a small bistro table sipping on hot cocoa with a best friend?

Oh and the beauty of old warehouses that are now loft apartments

street after street after street, nothing but beautiful buildings...

Don't you just want to open this door and go inside????? Oh I do!!!!

And last but not least...such beautiful textiles were everywhere!

This very old antique safe was just sitting on the sidewalk in front of a restaurant (a deliciously smelling one I might add)  for us all to enjoy as we took our stroll through Old Town Omaha.

That's about it for today...I only had about 2 hours of walking around and taking pictures with sunshine...it rained most of the time but the last night we were there was simply beautiful.

Loved every minute too!!!!

My trip there was SO short, plus I was sick the first morning, so I only had 45 minutes to walk the Old Town! I'm SO VERY thankful to look at your lovely photos of the area! You're a great photographer!!!!

Hi sweet Jodie,

Such a pleasure! And thank you for all the sewing assistance. And that glue stick!!! And tell your husband I thought your accent was absolutely endearing.

Love,
Cami

So glad to hear you got home safely. Had a lot of fun with you, and wish we had hooked up Saturday night. It was such a chaotic (but great) time! Will keep checking your blog to keep up with you. You are just a doll!!!
