Hello sweet Friends.

It seems like forever since I turned my computer on,
Life has been crazy busy for us.  We got all moved into 
Big Bertha.  That was a bit tougher than I thought it was going to be.
Trying to fit a 1800 square foot house into a 35ft trailer.
Not an easy task.

The good news is we got it done.
And there was even enough room for my
sewing machine..  YEA...



So I do hope you follow along with us on this new
adventure we are on.  I will be posting lots of photos of the places
we are at.  And of course I will be posting some crafty projects
that I will be working on.


I am hoping to get around to visiting all of you in
the next couple of days.  I have missed seeing you all.
Can't wait to see whats going on in your world.

Hugs~

I have been missing you already, Linda, so glad you are off on your adventure....BUT....notice that is a big one, I MISS YOU! and I have never met you! Your presence in so many lives is bound to be missed. I look forward to seeing your next post. Did you get to say goodbye to your hummingbird? When we left Colorado, the hummingbirds both came to tell us goodbye, even though it was much to early for them. Have a wonderful Saturday!

Glad to hear that you are settling down in the trailer, Linda! It is difficult with any kind of house move, let alone moving all the beloved belongings to a smaller place! However, the adventure is all what matters, right!? I hope to see more of your beautiful photos soon! HUGS!

Linda, let the adventures begin! So pleased you managed to squeeze in your sewing machine as well, good to have the means to be creative with you, even is you don't use them that much. Lovely photo of the hummingbird!

Marie said...

Wow! That would be so hard, moving into a RV home! But I know you will have a lot of adventures! Can't wait to see! Love the hummingbird photo!

Laura Delegal - Leroy Photography said...

Oh, I can't imagine. I have moved every 2-1/2 years since I was a child, but have now been in the house for 21 years. I don't know what I will do when we do finally move. We always joke that we're going to be living in a van down by the river -- LOL! Hope all goes well.

Silvia(Barnie) said...

Missing you and your posts and photos :) Hope all will go we, sending you a big hug.

Cynthia Schelzig said...

Hey, I was wondering...if you travel in a mobile home, how do you get snail mail?

Jane Wetzel said...

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...
