Making Moves

For real though!

As anyone who reads my blog or follows on FB or IG knows, I started traveling to Kansas City for work this summer.

Well, I guess I’m doing a good job, because the company I work for… the company I have worked for all of my adult life (besides that short stint at Doña Ana County), made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. And long story short, I’m moving to Kansas City!

Yes it’s humid. But to me, the humidity is no worse than the extreme temps in Phoenix.

Yes, I know there are tornadoes. When it’s my time to go, it’s my time to go. It won’t matter what city I’m in. Besides, I know where I’m going when that time comes so I’m not worried. Plus they have delicious BBQ!

Yes, I know it gets very cold, and has snow/ice storms in the winter. It’s easier to warm up than to cool off plus, I don’t work outdoors. And, remember, I am from Colorado.

Did I mention the delicious BBQ?

Yes, I will miss my family and friends, dearly, but we are blessed w/amazing technology and I’m only a 2.5hr flight away!

Oh, and this is my cute little rental until I decide where to buy.

This is an awesome opportunity and I am super excited! Let the adventures begin!

I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Psalm‬ ‭27:13‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Refinished

I got this step stool several years ago from friends who were moving out of state. I took it not only because it’s my favorite color but w/the intention of refinishing it.


When I found this lovely canvas print at Goodwill around the same time, I knew it was meant to be.


I just didn’t think it would take me 3 years!


But I can now tick this off my “To Do” list!

I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word. – Psalms‬ ‭130‬:‭5‬ NLT

Beeing Social

I finally made it to Michigan to visit Katy.

We met through the “blogisphere” when I read she visited her son in AZ. And I was beside myself to learn he lived around the corner from me!

Even though I invited myself to MI, she and her hubby were great sports about it.

She even gave me this t-shirt.

She has a beautiful home and gave me permission to take and post as many pics as I wanted. If there aren’t enough pics in this post, there are more on my Instagram.

There were quilts everywhere!

This tall vintage ladder loaded w/quilts was one of my favorite attractions.

I enjoyed my visit there. My only complaint being how quickly the time flew by.

We spent a lot of time in her phenomenal sewing studio.

She took me around the area. It was divine. All woody and green.

We visited a little light house and climbed the 80+ steps to the top.

To me, the weather was perfect, if a little cloudy.

Katy, I’m very grateful we are friends and  looking forward to visiting again whether here in AZ or in MI.

And I am smitten w/the mitten.
