2.9.10 -58 Odds & Ends of the Honeybee-

Since I am new to the blogging world & many of you just know me through my business, I thought it might be fun to tell you a little bit more about me {outside of just H&H} First things first the reference to 58 has several meanings to me. It was the address of our first home, where H&H began, & the lot # for our new home was lot 58, where H&H now resides. I thought that was pretty cool! Also the odds & ends has reference to my twin girls, Audrey & Emily, which we usually call Audj & Em. One day my neighbor boy was playing outside & his friend heard him call to Audj & Em, & he asked McKay, "Why do you guys call them Odds & Ends!" The name has stuck & we think it is quite funny.

Oh dear.....
I have to admit, I have been guilty of #15 on more than one occasion. I am good at changing the decorations in the house, but I just hate going outside when its cold to take down the Christmas decor! (Thus there are still some holly berries dangling around my front door- those are valentine-ish, right?) ha!
It was fun learning more about you!
