Dusting off the cobwebs........... :-)

I simply cannot believe that almost a year has gone by with me not updating this blog. When I was a regular updater, I remember how much I looked forwward to checking for comments, how any time something happened or someone said something funny I would think to myself "I HAVE to blog that!". Then Twitter came along and now, in an instant I can send a message directly from my Blackberry and my story is told - in 140 characters or less ;-) (I'm Brittgirl)

I feel like I am short selling myself. There is SOOOOO much more happening in my life, so much that I should be writing down so I can remember all this later on. Maybe get it printed off at some point in the future...... I've heard there are places or apps that let you do this quite easily!

There are so many changes happening in my life right now too, maybe writing here will help calm the madness down! What do you think?

One of the first major changes is yet another house move! As you may or may not know, George has been based in South Carolina for over a year now. He has an apartment and travels up here on a regular basis, I also travel down there a lot too - the horrible Ohio weather ya know!? Well, we knew sooner or later the move would happen but had to wait for Georgia to graduate High School. That time is close - June! So, after a few house hunting trips, we found the most perfect adorably GORGEOUS house and put an offer in immediately!

The offer was accepted and we are moving (hopefully) June 7th! I am beyond excited!

This also means we are closer to North Carolina. Why does that matter you ask? Well, Dan - my middle 'child' - joined the Marine Corps!


He is currently based in Camp Lejeune, NC until he gets deployed. It will be nice having only a 3 hour drive to see him rather than a 12 hour one!

Moving to South Carolina also means that I am moving further away from Nick, my eldest (just turned 21*). He is in the process of buying a house with his girlfriend.

The Forgotten One.........

Georgia (just turned 18) will be making the move with us.

G. Rae - a different take

Moving also means that I will be starting my photography business up from scratch again! I have been successful in that almost 90% of the business I have had thus far has been word of mouth and referrals! Now I'm going to a brand new place where there already may be an established photographer there! I have all my plans ready though and know that I'll be just as good if not better! I still have a few weddings booked up here in Ohio that I will be returning to shoot so business will still be good!

Since I last blogged, I have also become an Aunt for the 2nd time. Baby Marshall was born on February 11th - coincidentally the same date as Georgia's birthday!

Today, March 13th is my Wedding Anniversary. 11 years! Here is a poem that George wrote for me. He does that. Writes poems for me :-) There are some real belters in there let me tell you! LOL

Jorges - 11 years later

Those are the major changes and happenings in my life. I am going to aim to update this blog more often - I know, I know, I've said it before.......... but even writing this short piece has been cathartic!

So check back in would you? For me? I'd appreciate it!
