Virginia is for Lovers

24 04 2008

Greetings from Virginia Beach. We are here for the week while Kevin teaches a class in Norfolk. So much has changed. One of my favorite thrift stores is gone. It’s pretty weird seeing that its gone, but to see that half the building is missing is disorientating. The place where I used to work has been split into 2 different stores, a woman’s motorcycle shop and a craft shop. We’re enjoying ourselves, mostly because with Cale everything is new again. And because of the ice cream. Loving it.

Good things
Here’s more things I’m loving. Cute kids. Cute smiles. Even cuter laughs (she sounds like she’s coughing – she doesn’t quite have it down yet.) Pretty outfits for her (dressing a girl is like playing dolls!!!!) Pretty spring time plants (more in Maryland than here.) Good mail. While my husband was away for 3 weeks(!), I received a package from the lovely Jennifer of The Felt Mouse. She sent me some sweet 70’s goodness for Mabel. I said groovy all day long. It’s really cute and I can’t wait for her to be able to wear it.
The next week I received key lime pie in the mail. Food in the mail rocks. But key lime pie form Key West was awesome. Thanks Kevin.

More things. We bought our house and moved in last week. Very little unpacking has been accomplished, but the whole main floor is painted a lovely shade of aqua. Now we have bedrooms, bathrooms, halls and the basement rooms. Whew! We have yet to get our big shipment, but expect it some time after we get back next week (hopefully!) And hopefully unpacking all of that stuff will be a little more successful than it has been so far. Pictures will come soon, as we get settled (and an internet connection).
