Things are on the move . . .

Hey everyone! Just a quick update to explain where I've been all this time . . . First of all, I am nearly all moved in to my new house and cannot wait to get started on researching the history. What I do know is that my home was built by James Monroe, Esq. the nephew and namesake to our 5th President of the United States. His daughter and her husband are also listed on the original title under his name. She is a bit of a local celebrity over here and her son married Teddy Roosevelt's little sister. Neat, huh? Can't wait to find out more and will definitely be providing you all with updates.

On another note: I have completed my 3 month run with the gals over at the O. I have to say that I will miss it a bit but there are so many other things going on in my life to keep me busy these days. One of my goals is to get back over here and get this blog updated and looking better so be sure to check back in. I have all kinds of stuff in mind. Now to find the time!

July is in full swing!

There is so much good stuff going on right now . . . First of all take a look at this-
The new Collaborative Kit is here and it is breathtaking! I LOVE this kit!
And to go along with the theme of this month's kit all of us gals over at the O have all kinds of fun things planned for our Oscraps Spa Weekend (which is actually not going to be limited to just 2 days but the entire period btwn July 16th-23rd). . . challenges, chats and prizes; lots of prizes. Gonna be a blast, so I hope to see you there.

Oh and on a personal note-we are officially closing on our new home this coming Monday, the 14th. I don't think I could be any more thrilled! Yippee!
Just to refresh your memory, here's a shot of my beautiful new home (notice I say home and not house-I've lived in a few of those and there is a difference).
