It's been 11 years since we first celebrated your birthday together! Just so you know, it doesn't feel that long ago. While eating a piece of the most delicious homemade chocolate cake ever, baked by yours truly, you said you were so glad you married me. I'm not sure if it was the chocolate cake talking, but I'm really happy you married me too. I know birthdays are not that much fun now that we are starting to see grey hair but I must tell you the grey is making you look very distinguished.
I love you! Happy Birthday!
Your Amazing Wife.

Hubbies birthday is this week. The kids and I are planning to make him the most delicious chocolate cake ever. He deserves it - with all my crazy mood swings lately. Now I must go pack away that yarn before I start another project when I have so many to finish already.

Took a moment today to sketch. Scanner didn't get all the detail, it never does, but it's gray and rainy outside. Not enough light to get a pretty picture. I like the fact that the lines of my sketch aren't perfect, things are bit wonky, but you can get a feel of all the character that must lie inside the walls.
If you had to name this house a real name, what would you call it?

Every time I pack a box it does feel like a breath of fresh air. I've also got this really great incredibly amazingly awesome idea - it truly is just that wonderful - about a scrapbook for the new home. It's too hard to explain without pictures but I promise to share it ... and hopefully inspire others.

The in-laws treated hubby and kids to the family tradition of the air show. One of my quirky things is not liking low flying airplanes over me, it's weird I know, so I love the fact that this is a tradition the kids can have with Rob's family.
There has been more packing and making lists of things to do before the move. Moving was a much easier thing to do before kids and before they were in school - still not sure how people move across country or to another country. Just moving a couple towns over, my list keeps growing and growing of things that need to be done.
While packing I'm pairing down things. It's great when hubby and I agree that we want a fresh start. So today I'm focusing on ironing some vintage linens to put in the shop, taking pictures of furniture that will be put on craigslist or ebay, and just general "why am I saving this?!" cleaning.
