Best. Day. Ever.

It's almost my favorite day of the year!! Nope, my birthday isn't until February....Christmas, you say? Not quite....Valentine's Day? Please! It's almost Cecilia Days! I know, I can hear you laughing now, but it's one of those days that I look forward to all year long. I haven't been able to attend the last few years (one of those side effects of having a big girl job). I missed not getting to see the parade where I know 90% of the participants. I wasn't going to get to see my uncle ride his restored Allis-Chalmers tractor that was dedicated in memory of my Pepaw. I missed the barbeque sandwiches and the chicken dinner. I missed getting to work the Hardin County Dairy Assocation's ice cream booth with my Meemaw, mom, sisters and aunts. I missed getting to browse through the 20 or so booths filled with tshirts, purses, crafts and food. I missed, more than anything, getting to laugh at the "Almost" Talent Show (one of those things that I couldn't explain if I just have to see it). But this year, gosh darn it, I was going to take a day off from my big girl job and attend my favorite day. After all, this year, my Meemaw is the reigning Mayor of Cecilia! (a title that comes with virtually no powers except the priviledges of plugging in the town Christmas tree and leading the Cecilia Days parade). This year, my entire family is coming to ride on the Dennis Parrett for State Senator float (a tobacco wagon with hay bales :)) But the biggest change from my regular Cecilia Days festivities......this year, I'm setting up a booth that will have my Rustic Elegance crafts for sale. I have developed approximately 6 stomach ulcers, lost countless hours of sleep and fretted myself into a state of anxiety over this booth, but I'm super excited about it. I can't wait to decorate my tents with a touch of "rustic elegance." I can't wait to get my products out there and be able to really determine whether or not people like or want to buy my stuff. You can find me, along with all the other booths, at Cecilia Days this weekend (Friday night-all day Saturday). Come out, enjoy some laughs, crafts and a chicken dinner. You'll be a Cecilia Days fan for life :)
