Checking in to show you a snippet of what has been keeping me away from the computer.
I've been unpacking for nearly two weeks and finally the decorating is happening.
Dan and I moved from Mississippi (where Dan received his PhD in English and Creative Writing) to Seattle.
Dan grew up in Seattle and his dear parents let us live with them in their comfy basement.
Our plan was to live there for three months but the job search was heartbreaking.
We lived there for a year and 3 months.
All of our treasures were packed away in a storage unit.
Have I mentioned how much I loved living in Seattle?
Their basement is the safest little nook I have ever been in.
Now we are in our own little nook, busy making it a home.
Daniel goes to work at Auburn University and Bono Baby and I decorate.
Everything seems surreal.
I thought I would never return to the South, but here I am.
The kudzu pulled me back.
I can't wait to see what this year brings.
Even little gangs of kids like gnomes, I say.
