Sunny CA

Just checking in to let you all know we are having a fabulous time here in sunny California. The first few days we spent getting ourselves settled and we did some driving around to get ourselves used to the area. Then, on Sunday, we spent the day at Disneyland. Andrew had the best time! There was hardly any waiting for rides and the weather was perfect!

My husband's father and his wife have been so loving and caring with our transition. They have made it easy for us to make ourselves at home.

Friday we fly back east to pick up Jake, finalize some personal things and visit with family & friends once more before we make the trek across the U.S. to our new home. We are excited about our upcoming adventures. I am planning on taking MANY pics along the way...including all of the CORN FIELDS (*giggle*)! *corn corn corn corn*...

As far as'll never guess what I have landed...a job at our local SCRAPBOOK STORE! Well, it's not final yet...I'll know definitely tomorrow whether or not I have the how great would that be? Can you at a SCRAPBOOK STORE? Life is GRAND!

Check back soon to see what we're up to...sending love & hugs to you all!

How Do You Say Goodbye... the people and places that you've known your whole life? Let me back up...

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball...out of nowhere. And that curve ball changes the dynamic of your life. And with that comes choices. Choices that you have to make to survive and protect your family. So, we made some choices.

Today is my last "official" day at New England Scrapbook Co. My family is moving to CA (as in California) later this month. It's hard to believe that I was only at NESC for 2 feels like a lifetime. I couldn't have asked for better employers, better colleagues, better customers...or better friends. How many people can honestly say that they love their job and the people they work for. My tenure at the store was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. And to leave it behind leaves a big hole in my heart.

So many of you have had the chance to say goodbye to me while others of you are just finding out. What I have to say now - I say to ALL of my family & never know how much people mean to you until you leave them. I carry all of you in my and always.

I'll be updating my blog with news & events of our trip to CA and once we get settled. I hope you will continue to follow my adventures even though I'll be on the opposite coast. Many of my "scrappy" friends have asked me to continue to post pics of my layouts & have even gone so far as to request that I still make "Designer Series" kits once I get settled. Please keep me & my family in your prayers as we embark on this new and exciting journey. I miss and love you all.
