I'm BACK........

Hi Everyone,

Much has happened since my last post in February.  First and foremost, thanks to all of you who inquired about my brief rest from blogging.  I had just come to a point where I needed a rest.  I won't be back to blogging on a full time three to four times a week basis to start with but will gradually get back into it.

Since my February post, my husband and I decided that we were going to make a move to Florida.  It is about a 14 hour drive by car.  We recently drove down to look at places to rent and was fortunate to find a new two bedroom duplex which was to be completed by June 11, (coincidentally the time our lease is up where we are now).  I have been happily packing (I don't think happy really describes how I feel about packing LOL) and getting rid of things that we don't want to take with us.  It is always a JOB to pack up but this move starts us on a new adventure.  The location of the duplex is 6 miles from the beach, a quick drive.  After looking at some beach cottages along the beach we decided that it might be a bit to close with all the activity during the holiday season so that is why we opted for the place we decided on.

Beach front in Panama City Beach, FL

In past posts, I'm sure I've made references to my childhood visits to see my Aunt and Grandparents when they lived here.  It is a place that I loved and could never get enough of.  Just walking along the shore barefoot and looking out at the fast Gulf of Mexico takes my breath away and brings to me a sense of peace and contentment.  I actually never thought we would live there this is a dream come true for me.

So, you will probably be viewing new photos of the surrounding area as time goes on in future posts and a change in my decorating style.  While I still love and will incorporate my love for French decor, I will also be adding a beachy relaxed mix as well.  I'm looking forward to it!!  I hope all of you who have been wondering what happened to me will hop aboard and follow me on this new and exciting adventure.  Stay tuned for photos I take along our move down to Florida.  :-)

    Lots of luck with the move. It's stressful, but exciting at the same time. I look forward to reconnecting and seeing your new place!

  15. Kris,
    I didn't know if you were ever coming back to blogging. I did miss you, and came to visit from time to time to see if any new posts were up. I heard it is beautiful in Florida, and am looking forward to seeing more pictures of the area.

    Have a relaxing beachy weekend.
