The day before our Move!!

Friday, glorious Friday!  Last night I think I packed everything that needed to be packed for the move to the storage unit.  There are boxes all over the apartment, bags of pillows, and food all packed up to go to Megan's house for our 3-4 week duration.  When we moved into the apartment 6 months ago we didn't hang any paintings, we didn't put any knick knacks out but we did unpack alot of kitchen things.  I love to cook and I needed my old friends with me.  I left some of the things in boxes but not many.  When I started packing a week and a half ago I didn't think I had that much to pack up and get ready for the storage unit but I was wrong.  My jewelry making gemstones, wire, beads, etc. all took some time because they had to be packed with much care.  I had to also pack up my yarn stash, which took one whole night!!  YIKES how much yarn had I bought!  This chapter of our life is coming to a close and a new adventure is starting!  I have to say I can't wait!!  All the sacrificing we have been doing for the past few years has been totally worth it because we will be moving into our new craftsman style home that we haven't wanted for some time now!

Everyone have a great weekend and say prayers for us that the move goes smoothly!

Yay! How exciting for you, Sherri, to finally move into the dream house.
Had to chuckle at your surprise at the time it takes to pack all of your creative materials!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
