So much has happened since the last post!
My husband Jeff got offered a position in Clermont so we moved back home the end of June. It's a great position with great opportunity to grow; I have a good feeling about where this will lead him in the future. Jeff just finished his Masters degree in Architecture, YAH! and is now able to sit and take the licensing exam which is a 9 part test that takes about 6 months to complete. But I'm so proud of him!
When Jeff and I moved home before starting new jobs and everything we were able to take a 4 week camping trip... YIKES 4 weeks in a pop-up camper, in the outdoors, in the heat; we had a blast!! I wasn't sure if we'd survive the 4 weeks but we did and loved almost every minute of it. My brother got married (FINALLY) on July 30th in Michigan so we loaded up our camper and took off for Michigan. We stopped in a few places, some worth mentioning were Gatlinburg, TN; very beautiful, up in the Smoky Mountains. Nashville TN and Lexington KY. After the wedding we left for the hike back home and stopped in Niagara Falls (on the Canadian side), that was the second time I've been there and still as breathtaking as the first. Then we hit Pennsylvania, Charlottesville VA, Greensboro NC and Savannah GA before making way back home. What a trip, it'll definitely be something we never forget. When would we ever have another month to take such a great trip?! I'm glad we did that. Here's some pictures from that trip.

Now, let's see... I went for a job interview today and was offered a great position. It's here in Clermont which is fantastic, only about a 10 minute drive. Yah! It's called Kids R Kids Learning Center, there's children from ages 6 weeks to 12 years old. I orginially went in for one of the Infant/Toddler teacher positions and they liked my resume so much that they offered me the Office Manager position that will lead up to the Director position. I was so excited! But the best part is that when Jeff and I have children we'll get free child-care!! Now that's awesome... with daycare being so expensive now-a-days I couldn't pass this by. I'm so thrilled. My hours are pretty interesting, from 10am - 6:30pm, not bad considering I get to sleep in! So, I should be starting that next week. Wish me luck!!
On the crochet front... I received a beautiful doily from Trish! I absolutely LOVE it! If you look closely, you'll see the cats! Thank you Trish.
I have been crocheting just a bit lately, not as much as I'd like. But I've picked up my cross-stitch I've been working on FOREVER it seems, and I'm trying to get that done so I can gift it and send it! It's well overdue.
Don't mind the changes taking place, still trying to update my blog. :-)
