A request...

I've been asked whether my family would host another Old Fashioned picnic, and honestly, I really wasn't sure whether it should be annual or just wait until next year (2011).
But if there is enough real interest, maybe it could happen this year :) I'd like to hear from you now because I'd need all summer to plan! lol
"Old fashioned" attire would be **much** appreciated as this does make it more fun :)
I'll be individually answering any questions/thoughts you may have in the comment section, (or by email).
Please vote in the poll on the sidebar!!

Hope to hear from you,

Erika said...

Aw, I would totally be there in a heart beat!! But alas! I live much too far....*tear* I need to get out of AZ and go to where all the simplistic fun is at. hehe!
Blessings to you,

Thank you so much though.

Dear Mia,
I love love to come to your picnic,
but sadly, I love on the other side of the world. :(
I would love to see pictures and hear (read) all about it!

Good luck. :) xxx

Hello Mia! This sounds like so much fun but we live too far away.

We live up by Lake Superior, in Minnesota, but maybe I can talk to my Husband about going on a vacation to attend your picnic.

Only thing is he can not get the summer months off. :O( When would you be planing this event?

I would absolutely love to met you and your family! :O)

Mia said...

Ms. Rhonda,
Most likely it would be in the autumn! I'd love to meet you as well, your comments are always so encouraging!


Jeanne said...

Mia, I would like to plan an old fashion picnic too. Here in NC. Please tell me about yours and how you go about it. I am also trying to put together an old fashion Tea for my daughter and some ladies from my church. What sugestions do you have for me.
Thanks and God bless.
Thanks much Jeanne

Why don't we just have a modern picnic and stop living in the past.

Mia said...

Dear Ms. Jeanne,
If you email me, I'll be able to send you some details of what I'm planning--but again, I'm still not sure, we may wait till next year!

Hey Anonymous,
Most picnics are modern, so it's fun to do something different--not everyone likes events like this, that's why I leave it open to those who are like-minded in that area!

Mia, My daughter and I would love to come to your family's "Old Fashioned" Picnic, but I'm not sure we could make it down there. I so enjoy reading your blog, and would certainly look for photos of the day. I would also love to learn more about how your family does your garden. Things like layout, how you deal with lots of weeds, etc., and Would love to hear more from your Mother. As always your blog is a joy. God Bless, Mary Fran

I just awarded you The Sunshine Award on my blog. You make me smile! I wish I could come!

Lena said...

I every now and then visit your blog and read old and new posts. I love your blog, and even though you are so much younger than me, I really learn a lot of you! :) I think you and your family lives a wonderful life :)

Samantha said...

I would LOVE to come! But, we live wayyyyyy up in WI and could not possibly make it. So, I would absolutely love to see pictures!

In Christ,

Mia said...

Thank you!!

Mia, you are going to have to start "old fashioned picnic" regional chapters so all of us, so far away, can go too! :D Just kidding. I wish I could go, they look like such a fun time.
