Hello Blog World...Awaiting Our First Grandchild!

She is due any day!  We are so excited and feel differently than we've ever felt.  Like the birth of our first, and only, child.  We are crossing our fingers for an October birthday so she will be born in the same month as her "Grampa".  He is married to "Grammy"~~Me!  I chose my name in honor of my Gram, who I admired and loved.  My beloved dad's mother.  She doesn't have her name...yet...well, actually, she has about 5 possible names.  Since we know she's a little girl, it is exciting to wonder about what she will be named!  Oh the drama!!  I'll keep you posted..for sure :)

TomorrowAtTara is the name of my blog.  For those who were not glued to the movie "Gone With the Wind" until the DVD went to black and shut off...Scarlett ended with these words after Rhett said his famous exit..

“I'll think of it tomorrow, at Tara. I can stand it then. Tomorrow, I'll think of some way to get him back. After all, tomorrow is another day.” 
 Margaret Mitchell, Gone With the Wind

If this tells you a little bit about me, then it should!  Things I can't really do anything about get dealt with..."tomorrow"!  At Tara!  One of my fave, fave, fave places is Oak Alley in Southern Louisiana (my second home state).  Oh I love ALL of the antebellum plantations in LA, but this one most closely resembles Tara....a place of wonder and beauty...a place called HOME where Scarlett knew everything would be alright!  I think we all have those places we go to for respite...more on that later...

Have a great weekend!  I wish you many pumpkins and many fun decorating ideas to accomplish!  Hang on Baby Girl, if you can...till Tara!
