In the meantime, here are three totally random photos from this past week that I am posting because any other photos would include the hot mess that is currently my house, and let's face it...who wants to see that??
I was super happy to return to my morning smoothie making this week, despite missing the really good breakfasts on the ship.
And a little public service announcement for you. Wendy's has really good Caesar salads!
Really good. Again, not as good as the one I had every single night on the cruise, but close.
And my little therapy dog Mocha, who is working overtime this week as we finish packing and sorting and decluttering and saying goodbye to this cozy country house that has been our home for the past thirteen years.
I will be sad to leave this home, but I think of my amazing mother, who tells me that each time she moved, she closed the door with a smile on her face, and moved on to a brand new adventure without looking back.
I also think back to her mom, my Grandma Mildred, who lived most all her life in the home she and my Grandpa Johnny built. When the day came that she no longer could live there on her own, she too closed the door, and walked down the steps into the future.
I am blessed to have these amazing, strong women to guide me as I too move on to the next stage of my life. Not to mention a super husband who has made this as easy as possible on all of us. Our new house is quickly becoming a home, and we cannot wait to move in for good!
Have a Blessed and Happy Easter, my friends.
I will be back online next week. I apologize for not visiting as much as usual.
I have no excuse except. Life. : )
If you would like to see more of our cruise memories from a younger point of view and with even better photos, please visit my Madison here!
And lastly, thank you for the kind comments about my brand new blog design. I would love to take credit, but that all goes to Madison's amazing boyfriend Nicolas!
He is unbelievably talented and is actually getting his degree in Film and Media Science in Copenhagen.
OK. That is it!
Thanks for visiting.
I am always happy you do.
