I’m back…

Wow, what an adventure.
We moved our whole lives across country (from Idaho to Georgia) and I was surprised by the results.

I didn’t hate it.

It wasn’t horrible.

And it actually went by very quickly.

The little kiddos did really well and the time actually flew by.
I couldn’t believe it.

And let me tell you, we packed this car full. Whew.

And I’m not sure why my little miss is making a puking face…..well, maybe she’s helping us remember for years to come that she had the flu the whole day before in the car. But she was fine by the time I took this picture. And the trip still wasn’t that bad. Honest.

The time really sped by.
And we actually enjoyed ourselves.
Thank the heavens above.
(I was a nut case for weeks worrying about this trip.)

And now we’re here.
Happy to be settling in.

And would you think we were nuts if we spent some time today
at the beach?

Yes, we know that it’s December.

We just had to.
We left so much snow behind us.
A blue sky and beautiful ocean water was too much to refuse.

Even Mr. Loves Everything About Fresh Fallen Snow was smitten with our surroundings today.

And this little lady felt as free as a bird…

And this little man was happy to have space to run…
(and especially grateful to be out of his carseat.)

Thanks for all of the tips, well wishes, and prayers. I’m extremely grateful we have made it here safely.

Anyway, things are back on track now.
(And to answer some of you who were wondering…….yes, this blog will continue. I have some ideas stored away that are dying to be tested out.)

And I’m working on getting to all of the emails and questions. There’s quite a few saved up for me in my inbox…..but I’ll get to you soon, if you’re waiting for a response.

Oh, the shop is open again too.

And gosh, thanks for a wonderful year of support.
I have enjoyed working to build up this little ‘ol blog…….and getting to know so many of you.
What a great year.
