always a good time

fall was in the air

the barn was bustling

friends were mingling

coffee was flowing

the fire was crackling

debbie's shoe was a'smoking

and friends were a'laughing

it was a great day at the pink barn.

old friends were re-visited, new friends were made

thank you to all who joined us to share in the day.
