    Okay, so some of you may have realized....most of you probably didn't because I'm not that active on here anyway, but I've been away since the end of August. We are military and signed out of our last duty station on August 31st. Well, we are finally at our new station.

    We are now in Colorado Springs where my hubby will be stationed at Ft. Carson. We have found a house to rent.......even though we won't be moving in until around the 20th.......and it is close to post and in a good area. I am so excited to finally be getting close to getting back to a normal life. You know.....our stuff, our home, our family.

    We made a huge trip cross country on the way out here. We started out in New Jersey and went to Virginia to visit our families for about 2 weeks. Then we headed out. We drove through Tennessee to Ft. Campbell, Kentucky to visit friends there, then up through Kentucky and Indiana to Michigan where we visited my brother and a good friend of mine who just recently got married. Then we spent a day in Chicago visiting the Lincoln Park Zoo (which is free by the way, and awesome) and then over into Wisconsin to visit the Wisconsin Dells, really pretty but the wrong season to be visiting there. Then on to Minneapolis, Minnesota where we visited the Sculpture Gardens and the Mall of America. Then down into South Dakota - Badlands National Park is amazing. If you have never been - YOU HAVE TO GO. It is so beautiful. Then on to the Black Hills and Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Monument. Then into Wyoming to see Devils Tower and then down into Colorado. It was an awesome trip - just me, the hubby, the 2 1/2 year old and the dog. We did have to replace our car battery after it died in Deadwood, South Dakota while we were visiting the gravesite of Wild Bill Hicock and Calamety Jane. Other than that, no troubles and we didn't even get lost - much.

    Hopefully I will catch back up and get my business going quickly once we get fully moved in. Don't look like I have anything going much for this month but I do have a catalog show and a kitchen show set up for early November.

    Welcome back and I wish you lots of luck in your new town! Hopefully your catalog & cooking show will result in some bookings to help get you off the ground there. :D

    Thanks for the well wishes everybody. You're right, Ann! We did it up right this time and it was a lot of fun. From my folks house in Virginia to actually getting here to Colorado Springs was actually over 3000 miles - it was a long way but so much fun. And our little Tristan did great! He's so excited to be getting a new house but has been awesome meeting new people and staying in hotels. He's going to be the perfect little "army brat". These moves aren't going to get him down.
