Taking the Plunge...

Sounds cliche but it's true.  I'm taking the plunge in many blog, new home, new "old" hometown...everything is about to change.  So this blog seems like a good place to document my little journey and hopefully record some fun new memories.

Here are a few bits of background.

I grew up here.....


in the shadow of this....

This was home.  This was what was familiar to me.  It was life....until about 20 years and 3 kids ago, when I decided it was time to move to the a lovely town where high school football rules and kids score tons of candy on Halloween.

Good decision.  Kiddos are all grown up, doing great and we all have so many awesome memories of this great community. 
Oh, and they've all moved away from this sleepy little burb, into the city.

Which brings me to this...look what went up in my yard today.....

That's right!  I'm moving back to the "city".....where there is theater and great shopping (hello West Elm!).  And more importantly, my kids, my job and no more freeway commuting. 
Can. Not. Wait.

So today is day one of my journey back to my hometown.  So much to do.  Sell a home.  Buy a home.  Yikes!  It's a lot.  But I'm ready.
  So here we go!

 Thanks so much for visiting.  Please stop by often.
