Saying Hello Again

14 February 2015 - 01:10 PM

Hi everybody,

 

Many of you here know me but I see a lot of new faces. I've been away for awhile but am going to try to get back to scrapping again - after the dust settles from our move. Those of you that are my friends on Facebook know what I'm talking about already.

 

After 41 years of marriage, my husband and I decided it was time to fulfill a lifelong dream of moving to the country. We had made some new friends, through music, in Cass County, Iowa, so decided to find an acreage in that area. We found a lovely place the middle of January, closed on it Feb. 3rd, and we are all set to move on the 20th of this month!

 

I'm hoping that I can soon scrap photos of our wonderful new home. It is 4.5 acres, with a 1920's house, a shed and a pole barn. The house has been updated inside and out. It's a little bit smaller than what we've been in the last 20 years so the move is entailing some downsizing. It was time.

 

Mike is "retiring" from his second career with Habitat for Humanity and will be planting aronia berries to grow and harvest. I hope to have a small garden, a few fruit trees, and some chickens.

 

We are very, very happy and excited about our move. I've missed being around Scrap Girls and hope to be spending time here again soon.
