Journey Home

Friday, April 25, 2008


What a week I have in front of me! Sara is here and I plan to go back to Ft Wayne with her tomorrow. As many of you know, she is house hunting. What an exciting time this is. We have appointments tomorrow to look at 4... one of which we are looking at for the second time. She has a wonderful realtor who is really zeroing in on what Sara is looking for....older with lots of character! She has looked at houses ranging from 94 years to as new as 3 years. You just do not find that character she is looking for in a newer home. But, for anyone who has ever lived in an older home , you know all that entails. But, I am with Sara on this one........I will take new over old any day. So, back to my exciting week.....tomorrow afternoon will be spent looking at houses (what a fun way to spend the afternoon). Sunday, she has some shops she wants to check out and hopefully some relaxation, because Monday through Friday I am working the Vera Bradley outlet sale!!!!! How much fun will that be? A week-long pj party with Sara plus, I get to play (???????) every day at Vera Bradley!!!! I am always telling her she must have the best job in the world.....she works for a wonderful company, with great people, and how could you not be in a good mood working around all that color! In case you do not pick up on it....I am very proud of Sara....(as I am all of our kids). I am so happy to have her living close to home to be really happy in her job. And, now, buying her first home! I will try and post pix of our house hunting adventures!

Sale Date Fast Approaching!

I have had several people ask me the date of my next sale. After changing the date 3 times, I have decided, there is really never, ever a perfect time! So, June 6 & 7 it is! PLEASE mark your calender! It is fast approaching . I wish my "do" energy was as high as my "thought" energy! I have been busy painting furniture, working on journals, greeting cards and earrings. But I still have so much to do! ! Thank goodness I have a wonderful husband who is is good at repairing, will paint ( if begged long enough ) and will also listen to all of my worried rants that "I am not going to be ready!"
These are just a few of the projects that I am working on for the sale.

"The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring"

Can it be that IT is finally here...has spring truely sprung? In the midwest it has been a very loooooooooooong winter...with hints of spring.....but, I think it has FINALLY arrived. Rich will say that I say this at the beginning of each season...but spring is definitly my favorite season. It is the season of hope of that all that is to come. It is a reminder to me of all those things that are so precious in my husband, my children, my dear friends. It is hard for me to look out of my window, or better yet, step outside my door and not be reminded of all of God's promises.
In the midwest, we may endure the long, dark winter and all that comes with it, but we also have the privledge of enjoying the four seasons and all that come with each. Grass is green again, flowers are beginning to bloom. Springs holds forth the hope of fresh beginnings.
